Default Looking for a decent 55inch + TV

You guys seeing any significant deals this season on TVs yet ? Our 55inch Vizio took a shit ( after paying to have the main board and LED driver replaced ) so I'm looking for a replacement. Would like it to be smart but doesn't have to be 4k. Perusing Amazon but nothing is jumping out at me.

There is such a huge range of TV quality and features in any size. Really depends how nice or crappy you want. For example, you can get as low as $250 on a 55" if you're willing to buy a Westinghouse.

When trying to find a good price on anything, slickdeals is your friend.

I took a chance and bought one of these. You won't find a better rated TV with more features for the money. My first one I had to return from dead pixel group, but the second one has been money. The built-in Roku with all the streaming channels is fantastic. I bought the 605 model from best buy, which doesn't have the voice control remote but otherwise is identical for less money.

I have 2 6000 series 55 inch Samsungs that I bought during holiday blow-out sale events (both from Dell amusingly).

I have a 1080 that's 4.5 years old now in my bedroom, and a 4K in my living room that's 2.5 years old now.

Both have been 100% flawless since day 1, cannot recommend enough.

I've owned nothing but Samsung for the past like 12 years, about 4 or 5 of them. That 6300 TV i bought in Feb replaced my 10 year old Samsung plasma, which still looked fantastic, but i just wanted something different. Selling it paid for half of the new TV too, i think i got $250 bucks out of it.

Samsung makes great TVs for the price, never once had a problem with them.

Don't buy anything that isn't 4k. It's cheap enough now that you would be dumb not to.

Alternatively, this TV appears to be the model right beneath the one SMKE EM posted. It's in my Fry's e-mail promo code specials this week for $500. Was the same price at Best Buy on Black Friday, though Fry's had it as low as $450 about a month ago.

https://www.frys.com/search?query_st...nlanding120317


And this appears to be above it by a few models and is curved. Just about everyone has it on sale for $598-$600 right now, but this week's promo code takes it down to $579 at Fry's.

https://www.frys.com/search?query_st...nlanding120317


The weekly promo codes can only be used once per item (each person on their e-mail list gets a unique code). I'm obviously not looking to purchase these, so if you are interested in either TV, you're more than welcome to use my code. Just let me know and I'll PM it to you.

I will let you know, I appreciate you finding these deals. I actually popped into a Target to see if they had that Westinghouse and I guess the one in Crystal Lake was sold out.

LGs kinda suck, plus that motion rate is only 60Hz

When getting a new 4k TV, make sure you at least get 120Hz.

LG OLED most definitely does not suck.

I cant speak to their standard 4k sets tho.

Maybe not the higher up ones, but the lower end TVs are cheap and riddled with problems, at least they were when i read reviews before i was looking for a new TV.

Stick with Samsung. You cant go wrong. Like the other post, I've been buying Samsungs for 10+ years after my Mitsubishi diamond rear projection days were over. I'll be in the market again when the 8k's are affordable.

Many moons ago, I know that LG and BestBuy's house brand "Insignia" were one in the same.

On a positive note; their main service/repair center was in Woodridge here in IL. I don't know if that's still the case, but sure made repairs come back fast.

Only problem I have with Samsung is they force sponsored ads in your main menu inside the TV.....it's been that way for 1 year now and didn't know about it until I just bought my 75"....

No way to turn it off either, very annoying

Fuck Samsung. Had two TVs die within 5 Years. Not to mention, their POS top loader washing machine caused over $50k flood damage to my house.

They’re reliability ratings have been circling the drain. I had a great 50 inch Samsung plasma that lasted 7 years before a horizontal line of pixels went out, but their reported reliability wasn’t much higher than the Chinese TCL tv I bought, so I said fuck it.
