I second that. When we bought our new house this summer, we had to buy another TV since the new house had a bonus room. I bought a second sound bar as well.

I needed a cheap bedroom TV earlier this year. I have been pleasantly surprised with this 49" that I picked up. The bezel is flimsy but the picture is great. Even the onboard sound is OK. I don't particularly care for Roku's software but I have easy access to my various inputs (Direct TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc). I saw it listed somewhere as a T-Day deal for $298. I would buy this TV again.

Looks like LG is going to be cutting their prices on all of their OLED's. If you are wanting to pick up a high-end display, this is a good opportunity ends today.

Personally, they are the only tvs on the market that can rival a plasma's contrast. I'd love to have one, but I will hold on to my plasma for as long as it still works.

I just bought the 32 inch version but 720 instead of 4K. This is my first Smart TV so I am trying it out. Got it for $150 but if I like it thinking about getting a bigger one. I was intrigued by the TCL and the price so curious how this TV works out.

My first smart TV was a Samsung. The quality looked fine but compared to other smart TVs Samsung is way behind when it comes to the apps.

I bought two Insignia smart TVs a few months ago and they are both doing great. Roku is built in so there are tons of apps and streaming services available.

Sharp smart TVs are basically the exact same as Insignias but supposedly are a better overall quality.

In general Black Friday is not considered the best time to buy a TV. A lot of older models are being pushed out. All of my shopping sites say that the deals for March Madness are the best.

Hardly any difference between a 6290 and a 6300. But technically speaking, the 6300 is slightly better.

At Target you get 5% off when using your RedCard. If you buy directly from Samsung you get 9% cash back with an Ebates linked credit card. If you do not have Ebates you can use my link and get another $10 back: https://www.ebates.com/r/THEYAN41?eeid=28187

I always go for TVs that are yesterday’s news - a lot cheaper, plus most of any of the kinks are worked out.

SO I’ve heard that if you watch a lot of sports and movies and are going for Samsung you should start at the MU8000 series. Anything lower has a slower processor? (60 v 120) and can cause sticking...

Just what I was told by someone from Magnolia at Best Buy.

Got home Saturday from in-laws to take down old tv and put up new purchase. New OLED is so much lighter than my old Panasonic Plasma. Happy it also fit the mount because I didnt buy a new one.

Easy setup, 10 minutes for setup to get the internet, and log ins, do some color testing...great tv so far.

Sound bar is a must. Waited a bit to add the sound bar and it was hard to hear the tv without turning it way up. Sonos is sick, btw. Highly recommend, but it isnt cheap.
