is the go to site for reviews. 

I can't see splurging on a TV that isnt OLED. 

Bang for the buck, you can't beat the TCL 600 series. Anything below that (400 and below) is comparable to all the other bagain brands. Their top models are great for the price. I have a 55" in my cave and I love it.

Do you want a sound bar or a dedicated system with remote speakers etc. 

Is the grand for just the TV?

How much for the sound system?

$1000 for the tv. We will likely pimp out the sound later. All depends on finances of course. Probably 500-600 for souns system

If your current TV is still working and you can wait two months, it might be worth seeing if they're are any good black Friday deals.

I could be wrong, but with covid I expect them to have all their deals online, as opposed to some of the "in store only" deals they sometimes run

I have a sound bar and sub. Currently a 49” Samsung. Could go a little bit bigger but not huge due to where it has to be.

If you are getting the new Xbox or PS5 you will want a TV that can do 120hz

Just got a new 75” Bravia and love it :D

I disagree on any OLED or bust talk, the price difference is just too great still and higher end LED TV’s aren’t as far off as you’d think and can actually hold up quite well against an OLED considering the price differences.

They are amazing with great detail, was all over that site when looking for my TV last month.

I wouldn’t get too hung up on it though. Every TV has a negative and I agonized too long over mine until I branched out and checked some other real world reviews and that sealed the deal for me.

Good to get some other opinions to combine with the insane level of data analysis on rtings.com.

Haha I did this too several years ago when looking to upgrade. 

The last while I've used it a simple guide but I pretty much use their calibration baselines on all my tv's and projector.

Bought a 65” Sony x900h recently after doing all the research and viewing as many models as I could. Great bang for your buck IMO. 
 

OLED is superior obviously but not by THAT much (to my eyes at least). And burn-in seems to be a real thing still and I’d get that for sure.

TCL owner here. Fraction of the price of competitors. No complaints.

That’s what I landed on as well but the 75”.

I’m a fan, great for what I need.

Tons of information is both good and bad!

I just bought a Samsung qled 70 series... My advice is to make sure whatever tv you get has Dolby vision and Dolby sound .. samsung using hdr 10 which SUCKS compared to Dolby vision. I spent 1200 on my tv and there was a vizio that was 600 that has Dolby vision and it looks better than my Samsung ... So just make sure u are getting something that can support Dolby vision.
