If over that, 1080p looks fine. Some are dissing cheak 4K models. Those have issues and more. For example if you get 4K does it have the latest HDMI? Read http://www.cnet.com/news/what-is-hdmi-2-0a/
I'm in the market for a new TV and have spent several days researching TVs, both online and in stores. My budget is under $1000, which limits me to about 55 or 60 inches. I'm not totally sold on upgrading to 4K at this time -- I have another TV that will need to be replaced in a few years, and I am thinking that might be a better time to take the 4K plunge -- there should be more content, and I suspect prices will have come down.
That said, I've narrowed my list to the following models:
Vizio M55 C2 - $985 (55 inches, 4K, 4 HDMI inputs)
Vizio E60 C3 - $788 (60 inches, 1080p, 2 HDMI inputs)
Samsung UN55H6203 - $737 (55 inches, 1080p, 2 HDMI inputs)
Vizio E55 C1 0 $620 (55 inches, 1080p, 3 HDMI inputs)
My questions are -- are the two additional HDMI inputs and 4K capability in the M55 worth $300 more than the E55? And if not, than is the larger size of the E60 worth the tradeoff of fewer HDMI inputs and $150? And does the Samsung even belong on this list?
Thanks, Bob. I'll actually be about 9 feet from the screen, but my budget prevents me from going over 1K, which limits me to decent 55-inchers or the Vizio 60-inch.
If you think that the 4K upgrade wouldn't matter from that distance (which from all I've read I do agree with), do you think the extra 5 inches is worth having just 2 HDMI inputs?
Yeah, I've read that and other articles that suggest there's basically no difference from that far back. Which is the main reason I had all but ruled out 4K. The Vizio one seemed like a bargain, though, so I thought it might be worth it. I'll probably end up moving it in a few years to a smaller room where it actually might make a difference.
So, throwing out the 4K option, any thoughts between the 55-inch Vizio and the 55-inch Samsung? The Vizio saves me $110 and has an extra HDMI port, but the Samsung is a Samsung, which suggests more reliability.
Don't read the CNET Samsung forum or AVSForum on those makers. Samsung's smart hub doesn't get it. Read https://www.samsungadhub.com/pr/ourCapability/smartTVAd.do
What? Samsung injects ads. I don't buy Samsung for that.
Can't tell if Vizio does that too.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
