I don't want to pick on that name but when their servers go down you can't use the apps. It's an awful design and until they back off being so pushy maybe I'd consider them again.
I'm not sure if all smart tv's do that but the name you noted does so will you be upset with a smart TV that you can't use the apps when the maker decides to do maintenance or just tosses the services off a cliff?
No sale here.
I am about to buy an LED TV and a soundbar, but I need several questions answered before I make this large purchase.
I currently have a Sharp Aquos LED TV that is about 8 years old. It works just as good as it did the day I bought it, but I want a larger one. I want to get a smart TV that is 50 to 60 inches. I am not set on a Sharp, but I want to purchase a name brand that will have the best reliability. I know that Samsung makes a really good product, but I am a little iffy on the reliability of Samsung. I am probably going to get my TV from Bestbuy as they do price match and are local. They have a 60 inch Sharp (60LE650U) that is $1200. I was hoping to spend no more than $1000 on the TV, but I am thinking that I may be able to haggle with them since I will be buying multiple items. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. And any input on Bestbuy's warranty program would also be appreciated.
Now for the soundbar... I have a Sony surround sound system right now, but have just moved into a new house and am thinking that it would be easier to buy a soundbar than it would be to install the surround sound system. Hiding the wires for the system is going to be close to impossible in my new house - and I don't feel like paying $500 to get it installed (bestbuy quoted me $480..). I don't want to spend more than $300 on the soundbar. I know this limits me quite a bit, but any input on which soundbar would be greatly appreciated.
Should I get bestbuy to install the soundbar and mount the TV and TV mount? Or would it be easier for me to just do it myself? Also, I know that if I purchase the warranty, Bestbuy will repair or replace my TV if it has even 1 pixel go out. Would it be worth purchasing this warranty? And last of all, do you think they would be willing to work with me on the price if I purchase everything from them?
