If possible, get a Quantum Dot display or QLED though. Entry level vs a decent OLED competitor, basically. It's $693ish on Amazon.

Realistically, both a fine TVs. I enjoy the quantum dot displays for the extra price though. If you're really looking for something great, spend $2500 on the 8K panels.. It's not much more and the pictures are fantastic, upscale well, and again are just so good looking.

I agree. Two dollars less and that model just came out in February. Go with this Amazon version.

My elderly dad bought some Roku pile of junk from Sam's a couple years ago. I've been looking for something to get him to replace it. Hmmm...

That TV is the equivalent of the RU7100 from last year, and only has a 60hz panel. Samsung pushed all their models down one level for 2020. The RU8000 is 120hz native and has a wide color gamut. Oh, and this TV has a 3 year warranty through Costco.

RU7100 = TU8000
RU8000 = Q60T (without a 120hz panel, but the Q60T has quantum dot color vs a standard wide color gamut in the RU8000)
Q60R = Q70T
Q70R = Q80T
Q80R= Q90T

Yeah, editing out the context does makes it seem silly, no?

If you're looking for something great, 8k panels are where it's at. Considering intro 4K panels were like $20-60,000 or more, an 8k panel at $2500 is a good deal. Again, context matters. Don't edit out the context. I'd suggested the QLED panel for $693 for a direct competitor. That's within reason for a better image and more premium tv.

this is slickdeals and someone posted about a $500 TV.

the QLED suggestion was fine since it is $193 more. The $2500 suggestion was just ludicrous to suggest in this thread. Why would somone come to a thread with a $500 pricetag, and read your comment and think ohhh yeah ok, Ill buy a $2500 tv instead cos it looks much better.
Same as going to a thread that says a honda civic is on sale for $10K and me suggesting "if you're looking for something great, Ferraris are where its at - get one for $200K"...

No worries, Samsung just downgraded their specs. Technically, that is the replacement to the RU8000, its just inferior spec-wise.
