4k tvs are we there yet?

Recommended Posts

Me and my gf could both use a new TV. So for black Friday if I can get one I was looking at 4k. I know at $3-500 it's not gonna be great but what features should I be looking for in one? I'd prefer a smart TV. Is HDR worth it yet or not? Chromecast? Is LED the new standard? Was looking at Sony, lg, Samsung, or vizio only. Best buy.

Thabks for any help guys.

Also. What is a reasonable size for a bedroom now that will eventually be moved to a living room?

I'm looking 40-55" now.

Im with ya... i have no idea what any of that chromecast or hdr shit is. Im lost on this shit also. I did find a 70" samsung for 1499, that i think im gonna buy today.

Would I be better off buying a 1080 OLED display if I can find one? Should I be looking for hdr? 60,120,240 hz refresh? I'm cheap tho. Like $500 max, should I look for a soundbar or anything to add on?

120-240 hertz only, the larger the number the better. OLED is bomb, very very good technology.

Looked, can't afford OLED or hdr. Are either of those required? As of now I was eyeing the vizio with 240hz refresh. Chrome cast built in. 48" 4k at best buy. E series.

E series vizio blows ass. The processor that they use in that tv is slow causing it to look "jerky" on anything. The M series is much better but still not as good as Samsung or LG.

Just got the samsung 60" 6300 and love it and the 4k looks amazing, but it still needs the usual samsung burn in time for cable to look decent as anything that gets compressed blows ass with cable. My only bitch with it right now is having to buy that god damn hdmi to audio cable to use the arc system this thing has instead of an audio out like an older tv has.

Best buy had it for $699, so my fingers got the best of me to click the buy button. lol

I havent looked into the lg yet. I will. I didnt see them with a 70". Ill look again.

EDIT- also, im not paying 2 grand for any fucking tv. Ill go with out. Im looking at around 1600 and down, if that even. No way im gonna pay more for a tv. I have a 60" now that is fine. Not all neato cool stuff, but it works. I was just looking, because, hell for 1200 or so, why not. But, im not dieing for tv.
