    Thoughts on Samsung UN55TU7000? It seems to be on sale everywhere for 800. It’s not for a media room or anything, it’s the “background noise” or kid distraction use case.

    Grabbed a 65" X90J from Costco today. Can't wait to set it up. Replacing a 16 year old Toshiba. Probably going to be a wow moment. Had a couple employees and 1 other shopper giving me thumbs up for a good choice. For the price point, was too hard to pass up. And if it goes lower during BF, I'm within that 90 day return period.

    30 day for online price match. The c1 I bought 33 days ago was past the limit. They price matched anyways. Said they would do it this one time. I would have returned It if not and bought at the cheaper price.

    Nice buy! There are lots of stock at Costco Easthills for that as well

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Did you get their extended warranty? Is it worth getting?

    From what I've read, their extended warranty doesn't cover burn-in but should be irrelevant for the X90J right?

    Impulse purchased a 65" x85j yesterday at costco, compared the 85 & 90 on rtings and the extra few bucks didn't seem worthwhile for our usage. Also did get the Costco $99 warranty. It replaced the free tv from Telus during initial services set up.

    Definitely happy with the upgrade.

    Only OLEDs have a risk of burn in, but realistically even that’s rare as the TV software is pretty aggressive at preventing it by dropping the brightness aggressively.

    I did. For $99 and 3 more years of whatever coverage/warranty. Why not? But I mean if my Toshiba has still survived after 16 years, I'm hoping this Sony can do the same.


    This is from the Sony RFD thread. But I believe in the case below, this was Costco's 2 year warranty that did this, not the Asurion warranty

    For anyone hesitant on the warranty from Costco, I would strongly suggest getting it

    I got a Vizio 65' in 2019 which died in early 2021 (there was an issue with it updating the software)... they sent me the newer version of the model.

    The newer version ended up dying on me 3 weeks ago and within a few days there was a technician that came and said that the part was impossible to find (backlight?) and that he would recommend that I get a refund. Ended up getting a check in the mail today for $1500.. REALLY effortless..

    Used that $1500 towards a new 75 X90J!

    Coming next week!

    I recently bought the 65X90J as well. It's no X95 but it is performing quite well in a bright room.
    Costco already price adjusted once for me.

    That's how I felt when all yall buying those Vizio P65s and Sony X900H's and Samsung Frames. The stars aligned this time finally, financially had some slush fund to spend (didn't buy aftermarket wheels for the summer daily, bought used OEMs), had a SUV that could transport it and Costco had stock instore. Semi big splurge for me since Covid.


    But now that I got the TV, I'm all new to this 4K/HDR thing. I believe I have to get new HDMI cables to fully maximize the TV's potential correct? The last time I bought HDMI cables were from Monoprice and that was in 2008. The cables show HDMI High Speed so I believe they are HDMI 1.3/1.4? But the newest is HDMI 2.1? Can I re-use my old cables for time being? Wheres the best and cheapest place to get cables?

    Most of my old hdmi cables from monoprice supported hdmi 2.0 just fine. That’s good enough for nearly everything. 4K 60hz, Dolby vision etc. Hdmi 2.1 (for 4K 120hz gaming) does need newer cables tho.

    I still think 4K 120hz gaming is overplayed. None of the current consoles can really support the graphical requirements for it, and when it does, it cranks down the quality massively to pull it off. Hell even the latest games in quality mode with all the fancy ray tracing has to drop down to 4K 30fps. If you’re dropping quality so much, you might as well run 1080p 120hz which looks better as you can run better quality, and hdmi 2.0 supports that just fine. 4K 120hz support just caters to ocd people that want the checkbox support imo, or pc gamers with an insane enough rig to support 4K 120hz and high graphics detail (I’m assuming that even exists).

    Nothings really changed much from last year. Same recommendations.

    Don’t care or can’t tell the difference with HDR? Buy the biggest cheapest TV (LG 86”).

    Want to be blown away by HDR highlights? X95 Sony. Deal with a bit of blooming.

    Want to be blown away by color and contrast? LG OLED.

    Well, damn FOMO......

    Walk into London Drugs, saw a 55" X90H (X900H old stock) for $799. Grabbed it.

    That's the max size I can get for the main floor and was going to replace it with a cheap LG for roughly the same price. But for $500 less than X90J and better in some regard, why not.

    Where? Online they only show X800H for that price. That seems like a pretty solid deal.

    I got mine in LD in Airdrie as I was having lunch in the area and walked in for shits and giggle. I checked it's not advertised on website or may be not yet. I don't know if I got the jump on BF or something but glad I saw it first.
