Frys has this television as their mystery deal again. This is a decent TV that usually sells for about $1100

Delivery was free for me as well.

Here is a bit about the TV, not the highest ratings ever, but good for the money IMO

as a PS i know that this mystery tv is an RU8000 because I bought one.

This has been the same "mystery deal" for a couple weeks now...hasn't changed.

I'm still on the fence about getting this one. The biggest downside is that it does not have local dimming.

Honestly I think you can always spend a couple hundred more dollars and get a better TV. So you just have to pick what your level is.

You can probably figure it out from their website, look for a TV at that MSRP that's out of stock at every store.

Q6 and q60 are basically the same quality as ru8000 and nu8000 according to rtings, like near identical grades in each category.

Next actual upgrade is q7 and then q70. Lowest 65 q7 ive seen is $400 more and q70 for $500 more. Not counting walmart egg hunts and "nebraska tv mart" kind of stores.

I can't remember which it was, but it was either the RU6900 or RU7100 model. I remember asking the sales associate and being disappointed in what I was shown. Now if you are looking for an entry level monster tv, then you may be happy to hear this news!

Also... why is it that most display TVs have poor resolution content being played on 4k tvs? I saw a guy saying it all looks pixelated and that was due to the content not the TV necessarily.

That's true but in reality it's actually a good thing because that's likely what you will be watching. I just got an OLED and while it's amazing when you first get it and watched some 4k or even 1080p movies just to try it out, after that initial period you go back to what you typically watch. For me, it's Comcast crappy 720p and 1080i broadcast, which doesn't look great on these big TVs especially in a small room.
