A tad out of topic but...
My 5yo 46-inch Samsung LCD TV's panel needs to be replaced. This happened after 24 hours attached to a IPTV box.
Parts and labour will cost me $850 and a week's wait.
Went TV shopping yesterday and my takeaway is that the most basic of 46-inch LED TVs can be had for $850. Add $100 and I get a 50-inch LED TV. Add $500 and I get a 60-inch LED TV.
Power consumption of LED is a fraction of what I am getting with LCD.
Smart TVs are nice if you dont have a smartphone, tablet or computer. Wish Apple would make one, I'd be more inclined to buy a solution from them.
Of course this isn't a 4K display. I was initially planning to wait 3-5 years before picking up one. In time for a slim Xbox One & slim PS4.
Now I'm back to my 8yo 32-inch Samsung LCD TV and 4yo 40-inch Samsung LCD TV. Which is really sad considering we switched to HD cable this year.
Now for the 4K TV part.
I auditioned the following
LG 65LA9700 (65-inch LED)
Sony Bravia KD-65X9004 (65-inch LED)
Both look awesome with a 2048px on the longest side JPEG even zoomed in at 200%
Playing a 1080p & 720p MP4 with a low bitrate looks like a SD content
