Hi who's the TV guru's here? Christmas is coming and my wife wants me to replace the old Hitachi 42" plasma with something newer, bigger and better. Here's what I know I need with my current equipment. 60-65" LCD. HDMI 2 Support for 4K HDR and Wide Color Gamut up to 60 frames per second. HDCP, a Display Port would be handy for my thinkpad but not necessary. HDR support, Dolby Vision HDR, DCI-P3 and Rec.2020. Panel Technolog Full array + local Dimming. LCD IPS/PLS.

If you want the best looking display on the market, then get a LG OLED TV and call it done.

Samsung has some nicer models towards the top of their line up as well, as does Sony.

Not sure I would be looking elsewhere. If I really wanted the absolute best image, than it would be LG OLED.

Narrowing it down to these because OLED prices seem to be double.
There's about $600.00 diffenence between mid-range and budget.
- Best mid-range Sony X900E, runner up Vizio P65-E1
- Best budget Vizio E65-E1, runner up is the Vizio E65-E0

I'm hard pressed to give you a honest answer. I'm a fan of Sony, Samsung, and Vizio for products. I think they all deliver good quality products with images that can be similar to each other in many ways. I would go to a store, look at them, and then make a decision from that. I am confident enough to read a few online reviews and call it 'done', then live with and be happy with my results.

I just dropped three grand on a 85" Samsung, sight unseen, because I trust their product to look reasonably good.

I feel about the same way with Sony and I've heard quite a few recently choosing Sony over Samsung.

If you are reading good things, then it all is up to you and your budget at that point. These aren't bad displays or questionable companies, so you should be pretty happy at the end of it all.

Yes, LG OLED is pricey. Totally worth it if you can afford it and demand the best quality image money can buy. Yet, even at 77" their OLED panel is smaller than what I wanted, and the price for that is a great deal more than twice the price of the 85 I just got.

Went to a big box store today to look at the Vizio M65-E0 and it looked super. The salesman on the floor tried to talk me into a Sony XBR-65X850 instead. He said that's what he prefers. It's a nice TV too. The Sony XBR-65X900E is even better but $500.00 more. I don't know if I would like the android menus on the Sony or not. I have 4 tablets and an iPhone at home and I think I would prefer using that with the Vizio over what Sony has to offer on that but none of that would be a deciding factor. What I was surprised to learn is the backlight on the Sony XBR-65X850 is Edge-LED and the Vizio M65-E0 is Direct LED. Vizio Vertical Frequency is 60hz and the Sony offerings are 120hz. Sony doesn't offer Dolby vision. Sony has 4 HDMI 2.0 and Vizio has 1 and 3 HDIM 1.4. Sony comes with a Tuner and Vizio dose not.

Here's another few differences.
