    COVID and archipelagos shortages have made 2021 TVs uninteresting. Only thing new this year is fixed HDMI 2.1 support for 120hz and VRR. Most manufacturers seemed to have just renamed models around the same TVs. The promise of brighter TVs didn’t materialize at all this year. Weak.

    That said, just watched suicide squad last night on HBO Max, looks like I’m watching it again in theaters tonight so I’m expecting disappointment again haha.

    So all TVs are basically now good to go with a PS5?

    Depends on your definition of good to go.

    Will they all work? Yes.

    Will some have better picture than others? Also yes.

    Will that matter to you? Hard to say.

    Just make sure it's HDMI 2.1 / 4K 120Hz compatible and you should be fine if you want to use the full capability of the PS5. Beyond that the same things apply as they would for any other content with regards to picture quality.

    Don't buy an OLED if you are going to spend countless hours playing a game with a status bar, health bars, etc. but if you aren't, then the LG C1 is a really popular gaming OLED.

    Picked up a 65in LG CX over the weekend to replace our 10yo Samsung and WOW...... even my wife who thought it's stupid to spend that much on a TV had her jaw dropped when I put on some Netflix movies.

    Interesting, why not with the HUD? Do they burn in at those locations? I play too much destiny 2 so that would qualify.

    Image retention (and eventually burn-in) is still and will probably always be an issue with OLEDs due to how they work. Red burns in first followed by the other colors. Most TVs have features to mitigate this but they don't do much if the static part of the image has any significant size to it.

    The only reason I mentioned it is if you're someone who games many hours a day with the same HUD/life bars/speedometers, etc. on the screen, you might eventually start to see some faint burn-in. For most people and with an OLED that sees mixed usage, it is generally not a problem. The brighter and more prominent they are, the worse it is. This is also one reason why why TV network logo watermarks went from solid to semi-transparent.

    You see it on OLED smartphones too where people game on them hours at a time or leave the screen on 100% of the time for navigation while driving a Taxi all day or something. Apple/Google warn against it for example and say it may happen. Same with TVs.

    LCD TV's will never burn-in. Plasmas used to if left on long enough (if you are downtown look at some of the old plasmas that run the stock tickers all day, they have brutal burn-in).

    Yah. I have the C1 and it's very nice. Use it mostly as a monitor and for Xbox Series X. Came from a TU8000 and this is a game changer in a big way.
    Time keeps moving on and on and on
    Soon we'll all be gone.

    My company has a corporate account with Visions that gives me "wholesale" pricing. I've been wanting a Sony Bravia for awhile now but the X900 models are either discontinued or demo models and don't get discounts on those.

    https://www.visions.ca/product-detai...9&sku=XR65X90J

    My special pricing is $1650 + taxes. Good enough deal to bite? Comes with bonus 2 year warranty

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Samsung Frame owners:
    Has your "Classic Artwork" disappeared recently?
    Used to have like 14-20 images in there, now 0.
    Anyone else encounter this?

    C1 on sale at most retailers (Costco, BB, Visions) $2,597.99 - pretty much BF pricing

    Need a cheap Roku 32" for the treadmill. Had to sell my last 32" with my trailer. Like the roku interface. seems TCL 3 series is the best bet.

    Short throw projectors look pretty darn appealing. Can't imagine they do very well in a room that isn't pitch black though

    Most short throw projectors are paired with light-rejecting screens so they only reflect light from a specific angle (the light that comes at it from the projector). So they do much better in rooms with some ambient lighting than a traditional projector, but if it's a bright room you will still probably be better off with a TV. The kicker with a TV of course is if you want anything larger than ~82" or so the prices climb to $20, 30, even 100K pretty quick haha.

    This thread got me thinking as I've wanted a bigger TV.

    Checked USA vizio since vizio is no longer in Canada, $1999usd for a 75 PQX. That's not bad, $2500cdn to the border.

    Nice that's good to know. I was hoping OLED prices would have come down more to finally replace my plasma....and I don't need a large screen, 65 or even 70 would be great. Have 55 right now

    So does anyone make a decent tv in 32”? Checked RTings and even their top recommended tv was pretty mediocre.

    Was debating replacing one, but if they are all crap I won’t bother.
