    Hello All
    Please weigh in with your tv recommendations. I have pretty much decided on the Samsung QLED 65” series tv. No gaming will be done on the tv. Just tv and movies. Lots of streaming. Approx price is $3000. Is there a better tv for the money? Your thoughts please. Thank you

    LG C8 (or E8 with the pretty glass base). Or if you can splurge a little more, Sony A9F offers one of the best processors around. The picture is absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Checkout Greentoe.com and you can pick one up at a decent price (well off MSRP).

    Hands down, an LG OLED. The OLED are supposed to be better than the QLEDs. Recently purchased (within last year) an OLED and am very happy with it. I believe I have the E7, the one with the bar on the bottom.

    Drop the coin on an oled. QLED is still ultimately an LCD screen. Ditch the blur and the soap opera effect. Plus outter space scenes or other dark scenes while watching at night are absolutely stunning.

    Sony A9F is the best picture I’ve seen since the old Pioneer Elite plasmas.

    I would avoid samsung. Their TV's don't tend to last too long. They use cheap parts on the power supplies.

    LG TV's seem to last a very long time.

    I have a 2018 65in LG OLED and after tons of research, including attending CES, I love it and I am so happy with the purchase.

    Go OLED without a doubt

    LG OLED owner here. Unless the room is very bright, I'd go with an OLED over QLED every time.

    Thanks fellas. Very helpful. I will look into the lg more. The Sony is just not in the picture for me right now especially in light of what the markets are doing. Thank you

    Lg C8 and up have a better processor this year.
    I’ve got a 65”B7 I bought last year and love it.
    I’ve heard LG makes all the panels for Sony and Panasonic.

    Once you go that route there is nothing else that compares.

    QLED is Samsung’s way to try and confuse people and get them to think it’s on par with OLED. It’s close but it’s still just a fancy LED.

    OLED blacks are amazing! The Black on the screen is the same as if the set is turned off because those pixels ARE turned off if called for.

    Once I got an OLED I can hardly stand to watch my non OLED TVs...

    LG C8 has the latest processor so get that if you can. B8 is really close and some say it’s impreceptable difference.

    Also LG is the only produced or OLED panels. This if you get a Sony it’s still an LG panel, however it uses Sony’s video processing which is supposedly better than LG. However most say for the money the B8 or C8 are the best vaule as it’s Soooo hard to tell difference between LG and Sony video.

    Their everythigs tend to not last too long. I will never buy another Samsung product again. I've had problems with all but one product of theirs,. The first HD T.V. I bought was a 32" LCD, that worked fine until the Power supply went out on it. I found out this is a common problem. I replaced it with an L.G. and have had zero problems., and it has lasted longer than the Samsung did.

    ... Then there's the exploding Samsung washing machines ...

    check rtings.com for generic settings. For optimal settings for your room, you'll have to customize or hire a technician.
