Any good deals on 65"+ televisions

In the market for a 65 or 70 inch as my 52 inch just crapped out. Doesn't have to be 4k

I am hearing good things about the 65" RCA 4k TV that goes on sale frequently at RCSS. I saw the 65" Haier model at Costco which is the same TV and I really liked it.

It's kind of an awkward time to be buying a TV. 1080p TVs are obsolete, and HDR 4k TVs are too expensive. I chose the middle ground and bought the 55" RCA 4k TV. I really like it. But I also have a lot of uses for the 4k resolution.

My advice to you would be to buy a 4k TV if you want something that size. You will *really* notice the increased detail. As for HDR, it depends on the cost. If you're fussy you're not going to like the RCA or Haier models.

Thanks for the quick reply. If 1080p is being phased out I think 4k will be next in priority. As for the HDR 4k I don't think Ita necessary at this time.

When is 1080p being phased out? There is hardly any 4k content. 1080p content on a 4k set is still 1080p. These days TV sets aren't built to last. By the time a new 1080p set breaks down, 4k may still not be mainstream.

There is actually a ton of 4k content. Loads of 4k content on Netflix. I'm a huge sports fan and I have 4k TSN and Sportsnet. There are plenty of games being broadcast in 4k. I also have a high end gaming PC hooked up to my TV. It all depends on your needs and what you want. However non-HDR 4k TVs have pretty much reached cost parity with 1080p TVs. So I see no reason why you shouldn't go with 4k if buying a TV today. Even if you pay a $100-200 premium for 4k it's worth it IMO. There's that old saying "penny wise, pound foolish". If you buy a 1080p TV today I can guarantee you that you're going to want a 4k TV in relatively short order.

As for the reliability it's cheap and trivial to replace both the motherboard and the power supply on pretty much any TV. And generally speaking 90% of TV failures are due to one of those two components, usually the power supply. Costco also offers a 5 year warranty for a very good price.
