I went for 55" Sony - wish I went bigger!

Depends what size your room is. If it. is small - big screen TV isn't best choice.
#3
Anyone complain at the size of a cinema screen? Bring it on. I want a 85inch 8k TV... Give it 5 years maybe?
#4
The question is kinda irrelevant. It all depends on how big your room is. Also, don't just buy the TV on size. I'd always rather get a slightly smaller screen but with a better quality one.

I could get away with a 65" in my lounge, however I am going to stick with a 55" but make sure I get the best value one I can in that size. Yes, I could go bigger - but then I would lose some quality.

Am I being weird the fact I can see a pornographic image when I look at your avatar?
Please tell me it is supposed to be a joke image! oO

I have a 60 about 3.5m away. At first it seems ridiculous but you get used to it and as others have said it becomes the norm. I'll probably go bigger next time. Distance is important when it comes to quality however. Standard Def looks s**t if I get any closer to mine as the pixels are that much larger.

We have a 60in Samsung and it's superb. Felt like being in the cinema for the first few days, but soon got used to it. Crystal clear on HD. You find yourself seeing things that were impossible on a smaller TV, like the little man figure in the McD add cutting the apple (you can actually see the apple spray at that size) lol. We're about 10 feet away from it. Wouldn't go any bigger mind you, that's big enough for us.

Nothing is rediculous depending on the size of the room. If it takes up half of the room so that you guys have to squash around the telly then it would be rediculous! X)

That's a personal opinion. A sound bar will always (based on current technology) be better than built-in sound on a flat screen TV especially as they get thinner. However, a AV Receiver with a 5.1 setup will always be better than a soundbar.

I'd suggest buying the TV first and see how it goes, you can always buy a Soundbar at a later date if you feel you need one.

Simple answer.. Do you need one? No. Would the sound be better with one? Yes.

You get used to the extra size, it will seem like a cinema which is good :)

No. I had 65" and can't get used to poor standard picture (SD) quality when watching from 15 feet. Back to 55" and it suits me best for SD and HD picture quality. I suggest to watch live demo at the shop from same distance you be watching at home and then you can make a decision. From my own experience I can say - bigger is not better.

Hi.

As has been said above - it's best to get as big as you can as whatever you buy will soon seem normal.

However.

As has also been said, you need to get a top end 65" or the quality really will seem worse than the 55" equivalent.

So it boils down to your budget - not room size.

Example, the 65" Samsung 9000 is crystal clear even at a few feet away. Stunning tv. But costs £1800.

So all budget dependant.

Also, you can't simply get a Sony Brava. .... as (same with all manufacturers) they'll be cheap Bravias. .... and top end ones.

You'll have the tv fir a good few years so if you can stretch your wallet big top end us best.

As said above too...... I'd you can't budget for (example) Samsung 65" 9000 at £1,800
.... don't go for a cheaper 65" model (say 7000 series) - you'd be best sticking with the 9000 55"......

Don't scrimp and save. .... you'll regret it.

Now is a good time to buy 2016 model tvs as they've just announced this year's models. ...

Good luck.

It was latest Sony KD65XD9305BU and cost nearly 2000. But returned it back and will stick to my 6 year old Samsung UE55C8000(cost £2300 6 years ago) , which has better picture quality for SD channels. HD channels quality is same on both tvs..

Fair point, I watch a fair bit of ad content and will jump to a 65" soon but if it looks rubbish it will be disappointing
They are blinged up when you see them in the shops

To be honest if your budget is £1K you should stick to a max size of 55".

Example, a decent 55" Samsung (8000) is £1500 at JL....

You'll pay more for curved.....
#28
p.s. smart features are standard with most tv's nowadays.

Bottom line, higher spec, better picture/motion etc....

Try to up your budget to get a decent 55" if you can.....

DON'T get a 55" costing less than £1K..... it won't handle motion in sport or action very well and you'll soon regret it....

Price wise, how much would you be taking for quality 60/65"

£2000+ for 60-65"

I have came across some comments regarding sunlight interfering with viewing pleasure for curved TV's.
Is this common? The TV would not be sitting beside the window which i would think would eliminate this problem.

Any update on recommendation for 65" , budget now £1,400

Thank you in advance.
#33
I've heard that the 2016 models (KS9000 for example) have added filters making them far less reflections (light) than the year before. ..... so per reviews not as bad but in truth probably still reflective just like any flat screen

I think you'd be ok.....
#34
p.s. I personally would push to get an extra £350 on your budget and get the Samsung 65"KS9000

I really think you've tempted me.
Currently 2149 at JL. Will they price match MySmartTv's?
#36
Only if they have a shop - but certainly worth a try. Possibly try a couple JL stores.

KS9000 is a lovely TV and worth a go - but if you can't get it cheap hold out for the 2017 models. ...
