Thanks. NO arguing. Just facts.

Samsung makes good TVs. I've got a 10+ year LED and plasma Samsung. Would love for them to blow so I can get bigger ones.

TL;DR Doesn't matter, once you get it home you won't know the damn difference (except wbh)

For $800 you're getting a very nice panel. I'm sure you'll love it.

Best Buy has a bunch of 65 inchas on sale *insert illegal best buy link here*

TBH I think it's impossible to go wrong with a TV these days and you'll like whatever you get


Did you check the return/display corner at Sam's? They sometimes have crazy TV deals. Got a display vizio probably 10+ years ago that still works perfectly (for a tailgate TV).

Pretty sure that’s either just like one I got a couple of years ago, or very similar. I’d have to check the paperwork. If it’s the exact same model, you’re getting it at a much better price.
About the tv: It’s the one we watch the most b/c it’s in the family room. Absolutely love it. If Spartan FB and BB ever come back, you’re going to lose your mind over how beautiful the picture is.

It is a solid choice for a TV, but as others have said it can probably be found for less.  

To answer your question better I would need to know the lighting in the room and the TV's intended use.

I remember asking the sales guy about which TVs perform better in bright rooms vs. darker rooms. I got an explanation that actually led me to the Samsung QN65 4K I now have. If that’s the same tv DWags is buying today, he’s getting one that performs well in well lit and dark rooms.

No TV is perfect, there are always tradeoffs.  That TV will perform well in bright rooms.  The tradeoff is that it does not do well with poorly lit scenes - where the screen is mostly black/dark - typically found in movies but not for instance, sports.

I haven’t found that to be the case, but I guess I would need a side by side comparison to really appreciate your point.

Closest thing I could find online (granted this is basically a OLED commercial purposely highlighting its strengths and showing none of the negatives).

We bought a TCL for the bedroom. I love the Roku interface and the simplicity of the remote. Excellent TV for what we paid. Might even be my favorite TV in the house.

I have a Q70 model. Picture quality is outstanding. Mine unfortunately suffers from some software bugs. Set will sometimes turn itself back on after being turned off. It also has hdmi handshaking issues when switching inputs. Samsung support is totally useless. So, I've learned to live with these inconveniences because the rest of it is amazing.
