Ok deal; still in the group of lower-light output (~300 cd/sq m) TVs.

Without objection to supporting China rather than S. Korea, the $298 TCL 55S421 at WM [walmart.com] may be a slightly better deal: 55" vs 50", true 120 Hz refresh vs emulated, and about the same brightness.

To reach the higher brightness levels, current deals require spending ~$200 more.

I saw this TV in Costco and was impressed by the picture of this unit. It was very bright and is VA instead of IPS. I would choose this over TCL 4 series myself but to each his own. This was front page at Sam's Club for $309 a few weeks back.

In the market for a TV for my bedroom. I have roughly 11 feet from my head when sitting up in bed to the wall the TV would go on. Is 50" a good size? Too big? Too small?

Thanks in advance!

11' in a bedroom is fine for 50", especially if you watch TV a lot in a bedroom, but personally I consider that big for a bedroom. I have a tiny 32" in mine, and even with the backlight turned down and brightness on the lower side, it can be very bright at night with no lights on. We just use it for watching news, basic apps (music), and rarely a TV show or movie that we're not paying much attention to. OTOH, in a home theater space, I would say 11' would be perfectly suited to a 55-65" TV.

It would just be to watch news or some Plex before bed. Not heavily used.

50" seemed big for a bedroom, maybe 40 - 43" would be more suitable.

Thanks for your input!

On the latest TV reviews page at pcmag.com [pcmag.com], skipping down to the "What Screen Size Should I Get?" heading, one finds that the farthest recommended viewing distance is "1.6 times the diagonal measurement of your screen." Applying that here yields 80 in, or less than 7 ft max.

But hold on to your bippy bc applying the rule in reverse, your setting would require an 82" tv. So maybe better to try out one size and see how you like. Or move closer.

Somebody screwed up on that...sounds more like minimum viewing distance, not max. Usually that is the threshold point where any closer and you can differentiate pixels. Could be considered optimal distance, but for certain it wouldn't be "max" distance. I mean...how did we ever survive having only 45" big screen TVs in the 1980s / 90's even in 12-15' foot rooms if we were supposed to sit only 6-7' away from them?

LOL, the earliest TVs were like 12"; and 27" was pretty good in the 70s.

In a decade or two, everyone will be expected to have whole-wall TVs, a Jumbo-Tron in every house.

Edit: apparently the this tv model comes in two different screen types (ips and VA) so the rtings review is for the wrong panel type.

1,100 contrast? Rofl, no way. I wouldn't pay $100 for this.

From https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/um7300:
The 50" model is expected to have a VA panel, and will have a much better contrast ratio, and likely has better black uniformity.
This is the 50" model with the VA panel.
