Suggestions needed for a thin bezel 55"+ TV.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, gents.
I've been out of the TV game for quite a while now and I could use some help picking out a TV. redface.gif
Rather than typing a novel out I'll just give out some features I'm looking for and hopefully somebody can point me in the right direction.
I've got some TVs I'm looking into now, but I'm curious as to what OCN thinks.

What will this TV be used for? Cable, Blu-Ray movies, casual PS4 games.
What are my requirements?

-$1,500 or less after shipping and or tax [7%], it will most likely be purchased from Amazon or Best Buy and price matched if Amazon has a lower price. I'd prefer something around the $1,200 mark, though.
-LED, 1080p, 60+ inches, I'd take 55"+ if I could find a really good deal with top notch picture quality.
-1 optical and 4 HDMI ports
-Can be mounted to a wall
-A THIN bezel, the current bezel on my TV that is being sold is 1.75 inches thick. puke.gif
-A "smart" TV is a bonus, but isn't required.

If somebody picks a TV that I end up buying I will more than happily +rep you. thumb.gif

Samsung TVs could be what youy are looking for.

 

But I should tell you something. There is nothing great like a PLASMA TV when it comes to gaming if you ask me. 

 

I can not speak for everyone but Plasma TVs have 0 response time, on the other hand most LED TVs have high response time even in gaming mode.

 

It makes a difference in online gaming.

 

anyway these are some good LED TVs

The Samsung UN55F6400 would be my pick. You really have to see it in store yourself to realize how excellent the display is. The motion performance is also the best I've seen on an LCD TV.

I went from the Samsung UN55EF6030 to the LG LA557400.

The difference between these two displays in picture quality is night and day. I had a LN46D630 Samsung before and that picture was better than the samsung I bought to replace it.

If you have a microcenter near you, the LG is $999 until the end of the month, an AMAZING price considering it is almost a $2000 TV, and comes with a year of free netflix. I paid $1350 for this TV from buydig and am perfectly happy with it for that price.

The picture quality on the LG is the best I have ever seen on a TV (it lacks ONE hdmi port on your list though). The only flaw (and this is a flaw with almost every edge lit TV) is that mine has some bad backlight bleeding, it goes away thanks to the local dimming though in dark scenes.

I do appreciate the feedback so far, I'm just waiting to search for these TVs in person, thanks to work I've been a bit tied lately.
I agree plasma is the best for gaming and the UN55F6400 right now is my top choice.
The TV will be used strictly for media and casual games, which is why I'm ruling out plasma, I'll be using my PC monitor for everything else.tongue.gif


I was wondering what you guys think of the Vizio M601d-A3R, it's the same price as the Samsung 6400 and is 5" larger.
My neighbor has a TV similar to this one, the picture quality on it was quite good for being the older model.
If the UI was better I'd probably jump on this TV. redface.gif

As it stands I may end up ordering a Samsung UN60F6300 60" tonight.
I saw both in person today, the Samsung 7100 was Godlike, the 6400 looked just as good, the 6300 had slightly lower quality.

The reason I'm thinking of buying the 6300 is because it's 60" and $100 cheaper, at the cost of some picture quality. thinking.gif

The LG Cinema series TVs are right up there as well, I really like their bezel design, it's very similar to the Asus MX279H monitor.

Edit: I found a Samsung UN55ES7100 on Amazon for $25 more than the 6400.
I don't recall it it was a E or F series I saw, but the 7100 I looked at was insanely good looking.

Any more input will be appreciated, I will be buying one of these tomorrow for sure. biggrin.gif

I appreciate the feedback, I went ahead and bought a Samsung UN55F7100, which is the 2013 model.
The picture was near perfect and a good step ahead of the 6400. On top of that matte finish can't compare to gloss finish, it never has from what I've seen. The room will be kept dark enough so glare won't be an issue.
After selling my cheap-O TV to a friend and buying this one on sale I managed to snag it for $999, no tax, $0 shipping.
All in all I'd say that's a good outcome. thumb.gif

Oh so the Samsung UN55F6400 is the 2012 model?

Sorry I meant to say the Samsung UN55F7100 then.

And yep, I've actually gone in store to compare the newest Samsung LCD TV's with others and the Samsung LCDs had much better brightness and motion performance. The color reproduction was excellent, although not as deeply saturated as plasma (some prefer the saturated colors, others don't).
