They were saying how the curved screen was the greatest thing on earth.

Laugh.


In all fairness, the people who shop on QVC don't really have a clue how to shop. They don't realize how much higher QVC is than other places. Similar to the people who buy HDMI cables at Best Buy.

People that shop QVC are beneath the HDMI cable purchaser's at Best Buy. The people that buy QVC are old, immobile, and vulnerable adults. Southpark exposed these guys pretty bad. The person buying an HDMI cable just wants to use their $1000 TV at top quality and got suckered in due to lack of patience.

the only time you need a better quality HDMI cable is if you are running one over 20 feet. Anything 12' or less, get the 3 pack at Costco for $20.

I've seen HDMI cables at BB on sale for around $5 for a 12 foot cable before. That's the only reasonable price I've ever seen on them there, since the vast majority of the time it is ridiculous to buy HDMI cables there at all.

Great 4k buying guide this year. http://www.bfads.net/4K-UHD-TV-Buying-Guide-2016

Still shows there is no great need to get a 4k tv.. Give it another year IMO.

I'm going for 4K so I don't have to miss the great movies coming out on 4K Blu Ray in 2017.

Many movies weren't designed for 4k, you probably won't even notice the different in 90% of them (I mean if you play the 4k version vs the standard HD version on your 4k tv).

Make sure your 4k tv has two HDMI2.2 inputs, else you won't get 4k from your blue-ray, as your cable will take up the 4k port.

HDMI 1.4 will handle 4K at 30 Hz, which is what Comcast's 4K service delivers. I'm good.

Also, all the 2017 movies are being filmed in 8K, so there will be a HUGE difference for 2017 titles, which is what I'd said before. ;)

True if you are one to buy lots of DVDs.. I prefer more to stream from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.

Look for 8k tv's next year...

Pretty fantastic early deal from pc Richards.

Sony xbr850d, 55" for 1k. That's half off of last year's price.

Definitely bodes well for other 2015 models which should be heavily discounted this time around.

I get Netflix in 4K on the $378 Sharp (Hisense) from Walmart that I put in the kiddo's room, and all my current Blu-Ray collection is getting rolled into 4K as the discs become available. We're getting one of the LG RGBW sets for the family room because of the increased brightness and luma resolution.

You have to make sure (sounds like you are aware) of the window sunlight which will affect this. Yes a glossy screen is nice and bright but it also has a lot of glare if you have lights in the wrong place.

I have a 70" Samsung with a slightly matte screen. Is 1080P, but since I never sit closer than 8f, I wouldn't see much difference in a 4k picture.

I agree kids rooms don't need an expensive tv.
