So fucking close to pulling the trigger on this.

Thoughts? Can you recommend something better at the same price?

Don't buy a Smart TV, retard. They tack on an extra 20% to the price for the functionality of a $30 chromecast.
>>
>>52389194
Just dont get smart TV.
Thats all im saying
>>
>>52389359
>>52389384
yeah but if its that cheep why not?
its not like he would use it for the smart tv, just get it for the price
>>
>>52389384
i bought a smart tv and i never even use that part because i have an xbone.

but it was 700$ for a 60 inch sony bravia last year so idgaf
>>
>>52389384
Most if not all large new TVs are smart TVs m8. It's pretty much standard now just like 4k.
>>
>>52389194

Vizio M-series.

4k
Not Curved meme (Doesn't even matter about "viewing parties" or not, it serves literally no purpose, makes them harder to mount, store, move, or buy things for)
better backlighting
Smart Features easy to ignore
Remote is programmable for other devices (Cable Box, Sound Bars/Surround systems, Etc)
>120hz refresh
Almost half the price of that sale.
>>
almost all tv's in above $600 are smart tv's. They just dont sell if they aren't, so I wouldnt cross "smart" capabilities off your list

I would however cross curvature off your list. unless your tv is 80" or larger and you sit very close to it. as anon said earlier it will make it a bitch to mount properly, move without damaging, and doesn't have any benefit unless you are sitting directly in front of it , very near to it

every image on tv and video, and video games is designed to be projected onto a flat surface, using a curved surface will only distort it for no real reason other than "cool" factor
>>
>>52389567
Don't the Vizio TVs only support 30hz at 4k?
>>
>>52389567
>curve
>meme

When you're not 6 feet back it makes a huge difference. Especially for desktop usage on huge screens. Flat monitors are just horrible for the corners when you're closers than 3ft.
>>
So what IS the point of curved screens?
>>
>>52389780
The same point of angling your multimonitor setup towards you. To keep the display closers to your eyes.

For far away it's a joke, but up close its extremely noticable
>>
>>52389749
if you're using a 60 inch tv as a monitor you might as well kill yourself
>>
>>52389828
Sure thing poorfag
>>
Are "smart" capable TVs secure? How do you know what they're communicating?
>>
>>52389905
not really
the only secure way is never connecting it to your network
if you do connect it you can check out at the router level what devices are connected and transmitting.

tl;dr the tv wont tell you, your router can tell you
>>
>>52390063
>>52389905
The worse that can happen is that you download some malware (in the case of android based ones) and they know what shit you watch on the smart side
>>
OP here

WENT TO BEST BUY AND THERE WAS AN OPENED ONE FOR 850
no damage or missing pieces
no dead pixels
full warranty

i fucking got it

hello 4k dragons dogma
>>
Unless your tv is broken why bother? Whats the point if no one even broadcasts in 4k.
You might notice a slight difference to the average tv when watching normal tv shows but is it worth that much money?
>>
>>52391422
Ya fucked up, black Friday it was like 800 bucks if I recall.

Does it have HDR support? If not then you'll have to upgrade in a few months to have 4k blu rays utilized to their max ability. Otherwise you'll just have nothing but a sharper image
>>
>>52392801
>nothing but a sharper image
I'm jumping up from a 27" 1080p to 55" 4k
That's enough for me

Where do you get a high quality, large size HDTV that isn't a Smart TV these days?
>>
>>52389194
I haven't watched TV in 7 years.
>>
>>52389218
underrated

>>52392887
you dont, he is retarded
>>
>>52392738
Good job OP, hope you enjoy it.

Glad you didn't listen to the trolls trying to keep you behind.
>>
>>52389780
They're good for computer monitors that are only a few feet away. However, they seem pretty useless for TVs that are more than a few feet from where you're sitting.
>>
>>52392738
I was going to hate on your setup until I realized that I'm just jelly as fuck. I'm still using a shitty 5 year old Dell monitor that has dark spots.
>>
>>52389194

>amazon

yeah, good luck getting that TV in one piece.
>>
>>52392738
I hope those giant white blobs are your wallpaper and not backlight bleed.
>>
>>52393906
yeah theyre the wallpaper

new issue: my text rendering is no good, i'm getting crazy subpixel bullshit where text has red halos on the left and blue halos on the right. Some calibration site tells me my subpixel layout is v-rgb. Recalibrating ClearType doesn't do jack shit. What should I do?
>>
>>52393499
but have you watched tv shows?
>>
>>52394007
Play with the settings.

Does it have viewing modes?

I know on my monitor it's got like 6 predefined modes and 4 of them have the issue you described while the other two are perfect.
>>
>>52389194
>falling for the korean jew

Literally the applel of asia
>>
>>52394007
Turn it to PC mode. There should be something like that. Otherwise install MacType. It might not help but you should install it anyway (though I admit I don't know how far ClearType)
>>
OP here... It fell over while I was trying to figure the settings out.

fuck me

Holy fuck no you autistic monkey, they are without any shred of contest the best 4k TVs to use as a monitor.

4k/60hz also supports 1080p/120hz can OC to 144hz on some of the P series. The -lowest- display response time of anything over 60" on the market at 18ms. Barely higher than the newest top of the line Gsync panels at 14ms input delay @ 1440p.

Pic related, it's a Vizio P series 65". Where were you when Vizio won the TV war?

>>52389828
Or you know, I could be using it for muh vidya / couch co-op. Fucking jelly poorfag.
>>
>>52392887
You get a viewsonic 42" monitor
>>
>>52394457
>Vizio P series
>Our current lineup of P series TVs do not support 4:4:4 Chroma at 60Hz in the 4k 60hz resolution. 4:4:4 Chroma @ 60Hz can be done in 1080p, 1080i, 720p and 480p. The only 60Hz chroma supported in 4k resolution is 4:2:0, otherwise drop down to 30Hz to get 4:4:4.

absolutely disgusting

>42"

I said large. I'm looking for a living room TV. My bedroom TV is 60" so it needs to be larger than that.
