Never buy any TV that hasn’t been out on the market at least 6 months.
Never buy a TV you can’t find MULTIPLE reviews on. CNET, etc. Research, do your homework.
Mind refresh rates: you want at least 120hz
1080p? Then it’s LCD. If so, get LED LCD.
Make sure it has “local dimming.” (That means a big field of lights will light the image instead of “marquee lighting” which reflects light from the frame towards the center. It’s crappy.)
Look for at least three HDMI ports or as many as you need.
One or more of those should be HDMI 2.0 for your favorite tech to hook into.
OLED? Don’t be fooled by burn-in naysayers: that’s an old worry and something models 2015 and before suffered from.
OLED is the future. True blacks, no image lag.
The closest you’ll get to OLED blacks if you get an LCD is Samsung QLED. It’s NOT something special; it’s just LCD with a gimmick name, but it is good.
OLED is better however.
Bottom line: only get doorbuster TVs if ur OK with replacing it next year.
@Sleve McDichael, i use an Apple TV because most smart TVs are shjt and also spy on you. All I want is a regular high def HD tv without any smartness. I cannot find one anywhere!
@Sleve McDichael, I hate to ruin the whole oled part. But I work in retail where we sell Qled, Oled and Nano cell. And all of last years models that have been on display have burn ins and now I have to return them all to LG...
@BearDaniels, if you think your Apple TV doesn't spy on you, you're naive.
@punsnipermark6, yeah but but I’m confident the information goes to California not China or Russia. I’m ok with Apple having my information, not ok with Winnie the Pooh knowing everything about me.
@Sleve McDichael, I bought a Panasonic 50" LCD 1080p like 8 years ago on a black friday special and it still works perfectly fine with still a better picture than I see on some brand new tv's that aren't 4k. Granted it's the bedroom tv now, but just saying, my doorbuster has lasted me quite a while
@Sleve McDichael, dont even get me started on HDR and what actually qualifies as such lmao
@Sleve McDichael, plasma is better
@BearDaniels, I have bad news for you. Tim Cook is in bed with Winnie the Pooh and Apple is actually the worst tech company out there for having your data go directly to China without passing Go or collecting $200 (with the obvious exception of straight up Chinese companies like Huawei).
@Captain Swordsman, well if you have any security oriented suggestions for alternatives Im all ears
@Not him again, I wish Panasonic still made TV’s. I really liked the ones I’ve seen
@Rowsdower, still has the same picture quality as the day I bought it. No dead pixels or anything. Lasted a lot longer than the Samsung plasma I had before it
@Hot Coffee, I really still like the image depth from plasma, but they were REALLY hot and heavy.
@Sleve McDichael, too true. Also, they’re not manufactured anymore.
That is an illegal business practice. You can’t lie about what the price was. So instead they raise the prices for a week or 2 before Black Friday and then the sale price is the normal price. Pretty much the same things but with extra steps
@Duncan5769, which is exactly what gives sites like camelcamelcamel a reason to exist.
@Duncan5769, not on everything. Video games, for example, actually go on sale
@18bluecat, I just saw Red Dead Redemption 2 at Walmart for $30
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, thank you for this website
@Duncan5769, who is this enforced by?
@WhoseLineIsItAnyway, it’s the best
@Murphlins, as I am sure you know there are lots of laws that aren’t actually enforced
@Duncan5769, I swear there was a video where a kid exposed this at either Walmart or target.
@Murphlins, in the US, the FTC if I’m not mistaken.
There are specifications based on phrasing too, if I remember correctly. Phrases like “everyday low price” has different rules.
A comma instead of decimal point is weird.
The US uses periods to show cents on the dollar.
They may take our lives, but they will never take our freedom to spend money we dont have on frivolous sh!t
This is amazon in a nutshell
