    Stooge007 - have you made a purchase yet?

    I'm hoping to pull the trigger later this week. Still thinking the Samsung TU8000 - currently $1935 via Good Guys Commercial website.

    All the TV listed are LED TV they not even QLED. OLED Are the best in picture quality compared to QLED and the standard LED. But suffer from burning image issue. At 2k you'll be hard pressed to find a 65in with QLED. You can forget OLED or 75in with that budget. Don't get UHD, QHD, they are all different names for 4K LED which are shit for picture quality. Panel bleeding, not true black, colour and brightness not as good. Sure they look good if you haven't seen a proper QLED or OLED. But once you seen them, you wouldn't want to go back the LED

    Yep. It's with that code.
    I did exactly that. I already had done the trial on my main ebay account. So I just created another account, did ebay trial, and purchased.

    dammit, shouldn't have looked at their other TVs

    now looking at the Q60T and Q70T, lol

    but to be honest, i think i'll be more than happy with the TU8000

    TU8000 = $1791
    Q60T = $2358
    Q70T = $2745

    (all 75")

    the Q series is QLED

    i dont think there is much diff between TU8000 ad Q60... maybe some OS features.

    but moving up to Q7 is like 1k .... i think the value is in the TU8000

    i would get that if it was in the market.

    at this price, i went for a 55 oled :D

    yeah, i'm no AV buff so $1k or almost 50% additional cost doesn't seem like great value

    on the flip side, if this TV lasts 10 years, that's only an extra $100/year

    decisions, decisions

    Get the 82”!

    I went from a 51” to a 75” and now think the 82” would have been better. But I’m loving the TU8000 mate. $1800 is a great price for it! See if you can match me by unboxing and mounting on the wall solo!

    I'm in the market for a new TV too, coming from a 50" Panasonic Viera Plasma from ~2010. Thinking about pulling the pin on the tu8000 75, any gripes besides wishing you got the 82?

    If you have the extra to spend then the Q70 up will be an improvement to colour reproduction and blacks.

    Picture wise - no.

    After having it for a few weeks, some niggly things:
    • Amazon app is a little iffy at times - seems to have sorted itself out in the last week (maybe an update was rolled out?) but it came up with this "Ooops something went wrong!" page when you'd stream a new program. You can fix it by hard resetting the TV. But has been fine lately. Lots of 4k content on Amazon
    • Free to air program guide is good, but the preview is a bit slow
    • You can use an app on your phone to control but takes a while to sync up with the tv and start working
    • Ports on the back are in a difficult to get to area. Once everything is all plugged in it's okay, but adding new devices after it's installed was a bit of a pain

    Hoping for some real world experience here, have read some reviews and seen some comparisons but I think I have narrowed my search down to a NANO91 or a Q80T (just going for a 65" now) I know the LG has an IPS and people seem to hate them but to me I could hardly see the difference. This was in the Goodguys, their TV sections is fairly dimly lit. I like the LG interface more but reviewers/comparisons seem to give the edge to the q80t. I'm leaning toward the Nano91 as its slightly cheaper but I'm happy to have my mind changed! Our lounge is fairly bright during the day and id say normal amount of brightness in the evenings. Mostly watching in a lit room except for movies when the lights will be off. Gaming will be done sparingly and lights on, sports also lights on.

    Other alternative is it sit tight and hope that the BX goes on sale later in the year (the mrs said no to this now 3k was still a bit rich for her)

    Likewise, I can't tell the difference between my IPS panel LG and other peoples Samsung units. There were some great deals during the Black Friday sales last year, I'm gonna hold out till then.

    Not like a living room in the evening... don't get the LG unless you want greyish blacks.

    Can anyone recommend a good test video to whack on a USB? Definitely think the videos they have on their display models play to their strengths.
