Hey all,

Looking to buy a ~65" TV and have narrowed it down to the following (in no particular order):

  • Sony A1E 65"
    Samsung Q9F 75"
    LG C7/G7 65"
Have been reading reviews, watching videos, etc. but haven't been able to decide - assume all are relatively equal in price.

Thank you so much!

Suggestions:

Go to some stores and physically take a look at the models. See how solidly built they are. What damage has occured in the store - lots of scratches, plastic chipped off, cracks in the plastic even....

Go to the respective manufacturer's websites. Find and read the Installation/Setup Guide, the User Manual/Guide.

May be some fine print "gotcha's"....

Visit the FAQs and Forums. See what end users are saying and asking.

You may find some additional pros and cons for each candidate model. Possibly some complete show stopper even that will eliminate the model from consideration.

Some proprietary limitation(s) that leave you dependent on the manufacturer.

Think ahead. Consider some future proofing: look for ports that you do not need (or require) now. But perhaps a year from now....

Really appreciate the feedback, all good suggestions (some that I haven't thought of) !

I've actually narrowed down my search to the Sony Z9D and the Sony A1E (leaning towards the latter).

Pleased to help.

You have done your homework and can now make an educated choice.

However the infamous "Mr. Murphy" may still make an appearance regardless of all your good efforts.

Do not take it personally. :)

Such is the world we live in.
