    Really want to upgrade from my peasant 46" Samsung LED. Would love an 80" if it would even fit on my TV stand.

    It is absolutely insane how inexpensive TV's are now. I bought a 60" Samsung Tittied Out Edition (don't remember the specific model) earlier this year back in Feb and now the 4K TV's cost just as much.. They were 4x the price last winter!
    If it Floats, Flies or F**ks, Rent it.

    $3,000 isn't exactly inexpensive, but for that size, perhaps. We paid about $1600 for our 60'' LG 3D Cinema (we never use the 3d feature by the way ).

    I really wish they would just make a REGULAR 80'' that ISN'T smart and sell it for half the price. Because damn, I can go to bestbuy and get another apple tv for $100 and have a smart TV like everything else on the market.

    Marcus, why did you not go with the new 4k TV's?

    Edit: I guess they still do make non-smart TV's. Here was a 65'' LG for under 1k!

    Great question! Glad you asked:

    Before purchasing this set, as I said, I read countless threads, blogs and articles on everything related to screens and their trend: Curved panels, OLED, FALD, and of course 4k or Ultra HD. Based on my research and the very obvious fact that there simply is not and won't be any viable 4k content in the foreseeable future, I decided to just go bigger while NOT breaking the bank. This modest investment is great for me. Because I typically look to switch TV's @ 3yrs. Sure a 4k TV is impressive... if you're sitting or standing 4-5ft from it! But as you move further back, the human eye really can't discern 4k from 1080p. And from 10ft and beyond which is generally where you want to be anyway watching TV, I can't justify forking over the $8,000+ for a 4k TV larger than a 70".
    Here's a insightful article: Why Ultra HD 4K TVs are still stupid - CNET

    congrats and enjoy!
    I still have my 65" Panny plasma and was looking around to upgrade but decided to wait around till the OLEDs drop a bit in price... LG hitting the market with some new sets in 2015 but Samsung announced no OLEDs coming until 2016....

    My buddy got a 65'' and we played COD on it the other day and I didn't really like it I thought it was just to big for games. But for the price its a hell of a deal. I remember paying that price for a 42'' Samsung when they first came out. Also with the APPLE TV can i stream wirelessly from my laptop?
