Help me with my new TV purchase

wolfsmane 61 August 13, 2016 at 09:27 AM
My TV died on me this week, and I have been forced to use a 32" until I can get a new large screen.

This is what I am thinking so far:

Has to be 55" - 60", can't be larger, don't want smaller.
I don't want a cheapy crap-o brand like TCL, Westinghouse, etc. I would prefer Samsung, Vizio. I am not certain on LG's quality- I just don't have an opinion on them. Sony - Just like Apple, I hate their use of proprietary, over priced shenanigans.

I am replacing a 1080. I don't buy DVDs. I rarely rent them. Most everything I watch is on cable or thumb drive, from internet. I recently bought a firestick that I am putting and learning Kodi on.

Can you help me find a great deal?

I've had Vizio, LG, and TCL.

My TCL was very nice. Not amazing quality but I don't think it's any different than Vizio. At least at the entry level. My LG Plasma is the best picture imo, probably because it's Plasma. I did have a problem with the LG after a year and had it serviced under warranty, they replaced the motherboard. My Vizio also had a problem after a year and had to replace a chip. No problems after that and fixed the Vizio on my own.

Never had problems with the TCL it's actually very nice. Personally I think most people overspend. Yea Sharp and Panasonic are top of the line but idk I'd go with one of those other brands most likely and save the money.

There was a Sanyo Walmart deal about 2 months back. Alot of people bought them to flip. So did I, I bought 4 and sold 2 immediately. They are great tv's for the money. Picture is amazing for what you pay. I would try to find one on clist. Most people in my town (Dallas) want $650 new in box.

Disclaimer: this is and was my first cheap tv purchase since Flat screens came out. I bought one for myself only after I saw the picture on the first 1 I sold. I had a 75" Samsung 1080P but wanted a Samsung 75" 4k. but needed $$$ so I sold the 75" 1080P and watched this Sanyo until I could find a deal on the 75" 4k which is enroute now.
