HDTV for $500 40"? - Don't need Smart Options! Just want BEST PICTURE POSSIBLE

takemeunder 121 10 January 16, 2016 at 05:36 AM
I'm looking for a new HDTV and really jusat want the best picture possible.
I figured buying a LED from 2013 or 2014 would be cheap but can't find them anywhere. Only things for this price range are low end new "4K" televisions...whatever that means. And I definitely don't need Smart options.

All I want is the best picture possible for watching television/movies and playing Wii U/XboxOne/PS4.

I'm so lost as what to look for.... I'm replacing my current television which is a few years old but I never liked it anyway. When playing games there is always white lines outlining things like the sharpness has issues.

I don't have experience with any of the newer TV's, but I'm also in the market for a "cheap" TV for my sister, so far I've found that the Vizio E Series have excellent reviews for the price. Not sure these reviews are accurate, but generally have heard good things about them overall.

Do you only have room for 40"? Might be worth it to step up to 43" or 48" if you can, the 48" is usually under $500.

Hopefully others will respond with first hand opinions, just wanted to help you with what the "experts" would recommend. Smilie

40 is fine for me, I just want the best picture possible for the price.

And Im also looking at the Vizio E series right now, lol. CNET raves about them but how cheap they are makes me iffy....If you ever try one out tell me about it here, lol.

From the research I have done so far, the Sony 40W600B is a great television despite being manufactured in 2014, and has a price of about $400 and still sells new.

And I think the Vizio M series (43in) is supposed to be better than the E series even if you choose not to use the 4K crap and that price is around $550.

In short...I'm still completely unsure and looking.

If anyone has either of these televisions, or others and want to chime in; all advice is welcome.

My dad bought this Samsung for his office and it has very good picture, I would definitely recommend.
