Should I upgrade my current TV?

RagingWaffle 2,138 76 November 11, 2015 at 03:54 PM More Best Buy Deals
with black friday around the corner, i am really tempted to get a new TV.

i recently bought a TV earlier this year from dell. [see thread http://slickdeals.net/f/7881639-42-vizio-e420i-b0-1080p-smart-wifi-led-hdtv-200-after-200-rebate-free-shipping?v=1]


these are the specs:

42 in Vizio e420i-b0
Resolution: 1920x1080
Smart HDTV + WiFi
Tuners: ATSC, NTSC, QAM
Inputs:
3x HDMI
1x Component / Composite video
1x USB
1x Audio out
1x Digital Audio out
120 HZ

basically, i got it for ~162 after coupons and cashback.is it worth it to upgrade to the doorbuster tv on best buy for $150? [ see prospective tv: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/toshi...1JnQTY1hIA]



the size and price of the Toshiba is definitely appealing. i understand i will lose the "smart" capability but i have a nexus player ready to go. the tv will be in my bedroom (average sized).

The Vizio will have a far better picture, I had the 40in version of the toshiba and took it back to Best Buy after 2 days and upgraded to a Samsung, can't beat the price per size if that's what you are looking for. Side note; do you plan on standing in line for hours and hours for this TV? That's probably the only way to get it at that price

i didn't know there were different quality since they're technically both 1080p. only difference i see is the HZ and size and the toshiba lacks the "smart" part.

and i have discover and plan to use the price protection if i decide to get thisTV.

All 1080p TV's do not have the same picture quality, different panels, different technology and so on, why do you think their are low end and high end TV's. Do you think that a really expensive TV has the same picture quality as a cheap one? You might want to do a bit of research.

You do realize that this is a doorbuster deal and people will be lining up hours before open and they will only carry a very limited amount of TV's at this price???? That being said the PICTURE QUALITY WILL NOT BE AS GOOD AS YOUR VIZIO, if all 1080 p TV's were the same why would anyone buy an expensive one???

touche, i did not think of that even though it's quite obvious. i am more interested in the size and price but did not think i would lose much quality.

as for doorbuster, theres this thing called price protection by discover. they basically price adjust any future deals (including black friday)

I would suggest if you're going to upgrade, go larger than 50". i jumped from a 42" to a 55" as my main tv, and now i wished i did 65". at the time people were telling me get the 65, but i rationalized myself into the 55".

if you dont need the TV now, then just wait on a slickdeal on a 65". the good thing is that you aren't in critical need.

i would not want to try and get a BF doorbuster, I'd rather pay the extra $50 or even $100 not to deal with those crowds...

this is for a bedroom tv. i think anything over 55 is way too big
