Finally ready for 75' 4k curved TV! New to website. Help?

I've been checking for a few weeks and haven't seen one 70+ curved 4k TV.

I've decided to do something really really exciting and finally just say screw it, go big with TVs lol. Can't wait.

I want a 75" (maybe 70 if it was worth it) Samsung, Sony, or LG curved 4k TV with a 240 refresh rate.

Is that going to be rare on here? I don't know where to look but it seems to me Costco is the best place to buy TVs due to price/return policy. I've heard stay away from Vizio.

Also, I heard just before the Superbowl is the best time to buy a TV. Is that true, and where do you get deals around that time? Do stores just have some sort of superbowl discount?

One big thing you didn't mention is YOUR PRICE RANGE!!! Why curved? No tv has a native 240hz refresh rate, read up on that here

no 4K content for years.
Stick with 1080p.

There are always "sales" 1-2 weeks before the superbowl. Best time to buy is November/December.

Plenty of streaming 4K content is available, directv has 4K movies, ultraflix had a decent sized library, Xfininty offers some 4K content, 4K bluray will be here imminently, Netflix has a decent amount along with Amazon.... So think again.

Just make sure that you really want curved. Research it, think about it, then research again. I consider it a sales gimmic that won't survive more than a few years, but what do I know.

My issue is that it is great for a couple or few people at most. Think a group though; anyone outside of the sweet spot will suffer. It is not meant, by design, for more than a couple people since it is directed or focused inward.

I've sat in front of both in av stores and think its just a fad, in my humble opinion, like 3D.

Curved is sort of a gimmick imo. 4K is like 3d, namely a bit of not-really necessary fluff. Beyond the fact that the most human eyes probably can not tell the difference at viewing distance between 1080p and 4k is the simple fact that you pay a high premium for it now (although that premium is coming down pretty fast). Plus, unless you plan on sitting 3 ft from your TV screen, you are likely to notice no real,effective difference in picture quality when viewing imo. I know others may disagree, but it is sort of arguing MPixels with cameras. You reach a point where you really can't tell the difference unless you are doing some high end Photoshopping or graphics work\zooming in and the like and you are just paying for the latest tech to have it not to really use it.

That said, if you have the money and want it, feel free. If it were me though, I would pass on the curved screen and wait out the 4k a little longer as the prices fall and buy when 4K becomes more of the defacto standard and the industry is pushing the next shining new toy feature to drive prices up. One always pays a premium to be on the cutting edge of technology.


My 2 cents.
