    I always check the warehouse deals on items I'm tracking. They can be excellent.

    I am having second thoughts on the x90j. Was looking at the 65U68G and seems to be a pretty close match to the x90j but is $500 cheaper and has VRR which should match up well with the Xbox Series X that will be hooked to the TV full time. I am a bit worried about the viewing angles for the Hisense as the couch in my basement is not very far away from the wall that the tv will be on.

    The price difference basically pays for the sound bar which is a major plus for the Hisense.

    Any thoughts? Keep the sony or swap it out?
    I have the 65U68G in a brightly lit living room and its great. I'm not much of a TV geek but the quantum dot/QLED definitely makes colors more vibrant. I was in the same boat between deciding between Hisense & Sony. Only downside is visitors see the brand and assume you're in dire financial straits. Android TV on the 65U68G is great too. Minor complaint is I watch TV at night on bluetooth headphones and there's a fraction of a second delay between whats happening on screen and sound.

    All TVs today are amazing across price ranges compared to just a few years ago. Has anyone bought an ultra cheap Walmart RCA or Toshiba want to share their thoughts?

    The U68G doesn't have VRR though. You need the 78 or 88 for HDMI 2.1 gaming.

    I just got the LG
    https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product...oofer/15387895
    one of the few in that price range that has room calibration and the highest rated on rtings.
    The HT-Z9F sounded slightly better but the subwoofer included sucked.
    I got this same unit from my father as a b-day present for my office TV setup (65" LG C1 OLED). The sound even from streaming services like Netflix/Prime/HBOMax/DisneyMinus/etc is fantastic, depending on the format used by each different video and movie. Atmos is great, I'm really surprised at how well these soundbars work in a medium sized room like my office.

    My understanding is that this model does have VRR.

    X90J and X900H both support 2.1 and VRR on recently released firmware. Both sounds like it's not something to write home about at this attempt.

    True gamers buy LG C1s (And from Costco with extended warranty, so burn-in comes in you may get a new panel ).

    RFD was saying that the Costco 5 year warranty doesn't include burn in?

    ^ It does not, though I don't think anyone will have issues with burn-in. My CX from last year still looks like same.

    I think maybe the warranty straight from LG might cover burn-in but it's like $400-500.

    It does not - https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/hisense/u6g

    The U78/88G implementation of VRR is probably better than Sony's lame attempt.

    Back to HDMI cables, I'm just re-using the cables that Shaw provided me with my 4K Wireless TV Boxs and Bluecurve Gateway, they say HDMI High Speed on them. These good enough for now? I just turned on TV and put on Shang Chi movie and I was impressed, from 1080P Toshiba to 4K Sony

    Hope this TV lasts another 10-15 years till the next TV upgrade purchase

    It's not exactly easy to burn in an OLED. They have pretty aggressive brightness limiter to protect the display. It's not something I would worry about at all.

    It's that limiter that drives me away from OLED.

    Got it from Visions, $1999. They also give you a $99.90 gift card if you do in-store pickup, which you can use the same day so I put it towards a sound bar I needed anyway.

    Now I just need to find a good deal on a 4K 7.1 receiver and I'm set.

    Nice. Visions is where I got my plasma from years ago, I found them great to deal with.

    Depends on what you're hooking up to it. If it's just the cable box then the Shaw included ones will be fine. If it's Xbox Series X, PS5, Nvidia Shield, you'll want a HDMI 2.1 cable. I get all of my cables from Infinite Cables, but if you're just getting the one cable then just grab it from Amazon. Xbox and Playstation have HDMI 2.1 cables in the box.

    Too much bright shit, tv dims. Brightness comes back up when it feels safe to. It’s a roller coaster of brightness changes. Totally ruins whatever you’re watching.

    I use Bluerigger for HDMI. They do have a downside though, for some crazy reason or simply the way they plate the connector causes them to slip out very very slowly. If you pull and push it a millimeter every month or so by the end of the year it will have roughed up enough to grip by itself. Or you can kind of do it right away, but its still a good idea to check for the first year anyhow.

    Also: Hate that DisplayPort has grabby teeth.
