    LED TVs

    Thinking it may be time to replace our 8 year old Samsung 61" DLP. It has been an awesome TV, rock solid but as of late wants to just turn off every once in a while. With such good performance of our DLP we are likely sticking with Samsung and wouldn't mind stepping up to the 65".

    We had started looking at the following TVs. Were planning on the least expensive which can be had for $899 but then got talked into the $1199 and are now considering the $1499. How quickly we nearly doubled the price.

    I don't keep up with TV technology but would like another 8 years out of the TV, the retailers are saying 4 to 5 years is good.

    Anyone have any thoughts on these TVs or others out there?

    I like Samsung TV's, we have 1 LED and 2 LCDs. We don't watch a lot of TV but when we do the LED TV is nice to have.
    Not sure I would spring for a 3D TV though.

    I just had a Samsung get blown apart by a lightening hit this summer and replaced it with another Samsung. Went with a 60" this time.

    The 3D still just seems like a gimnick to me. I haven't seen all that much released in 3D to ever use the function. Not sold on the curved screen yet either. That just seems like something that you'd have to sit directly in front of the screen in a fairly small room to get any benefit from. I'm not sure the curve does anything for you if you are viewing from 20'-30' away.

    we have 2 LED Samsungs, I found one of the more important thing to look at was refresh rate, ie 60, 120 or 240 hz. go with the highest you can fit in budget, makes big difference in crispness of picture.

    I know nothing about these new TV's. About a year ago our 30" flat screen tube type TV went out. So I did tons of research needing to learn about these new TV's - LED, LCD, etc. After reading reviews for hours, I opted for an LED LG TV and also bought a 29" the same for another room. The smaller one was defective so I had to send it back (thank you B&H!). I then opted for a Samsung to replace that one. I am so much happier with the Samsung as far as picture quality and performance.

    One thing that I just can't figure out - why is the aspect ratio of all these new TV's different than what is coming in from my cable? I have to set them both to "zoom" level to get the picture to fill the screen. Then some of the top and bottom of the view is cut off. I just don't get it.

    And after many years that the 30" flat screen was on the shelf, I couldn't believe how heavy it was! Once we got it on the floor we dragged it out to the porch and into the loader bucket from there!

    Agreed, refresh rate is what keeps fast action from "falling apart". I have zero interest in 3d. The glasses would be something I would break or lose, or just clutter up the place.

    For the record I have two Samsungs, not as big as you are after, both a dumb one and a smart one.

    I've got a Samsung 60" LED TV (UN60F6350) It is a 2013 model that I bought at the end of last year. Now is a good time to buy Samsung as they roll out model year updates similar to cars. One thing to note about Samsung TVs on the refresh rate, they call it "Clear Motion Rate", this is not the actual refresh rate. For example, my tv has a Clear Motion Rate of 240, but an actual refresh rate of 120 hz. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just something to understand.

    So, for me a primary tv would be Samsung, I use Vizio for places like guest bedrooms.I want guests to be comfortable only to a point.

    yep. Refresh rate is key. I have a samsung 55" LED smart tV (non 3D) with 120Hz refresh. It is a very nice TV but every once and a while during a football game I can see the blur during fast movements. My TV was $1100 on black Friday a couple years ago. The TVs that are a couple hundred bucks are usually 60Hz.

    I would make sure it has a lot of HDMI ports & 240hz+. I wouldn't do 3D, my dad has it and the only people that like are the grandkids. Wifi TVs and the Apps are a neat feature but not practical - people just use their computers, ipads, apple TV, or chrome cast.

    coaltrain, I believe if you have a high definition TV/signal, 1080i and forget about it.

    Yeah, this is one of those frustrating things that you either have to pay more $$ or learn to live with it.

    HDTV signals are usually broadcast in a 16:9 aspect ratio. SDTV (i.e. the "old" TV signal that we all grew up with, AKA "Low Def") broadcasts in a 4:3 aspect ratio.

    "Zoom" is an attempt to fix the issue by stretching the 4:3 picture to fill a 16:9 screen. They do that by enlarging the picture and cutting off the top and bottom. Some systems also have a "Stretch" mode that distorts the picture but doesn't cut anything off (but that can look kinda goofy).

    You essentially have a choice of watching a 4:3 picture and living with bars on both sides of the screen or upgrading your cable to HD. (If you have HD cable already, then you have to go into your cable box settings and adjusting that to output in the 16:9 format)
