Thank you, appreciate all the insight! Is that fairly standard that these TVs only have one 4K output? It's not necessarily the end of the world - realistically I'd be using Xbox One X 90% of the time... but still a bit annoying especially if the ports are difficult to access.
Yeah it's somewhat rare and a bit annoying but they do that to keep the costs down.

I have my Xbox one s into that hdmi port which will upgrade to an X at some point. I have a 4k cable box but I plug it in through my Xbox and unplug it when a 4k program comes in which is pretty rare atm. I'd prefer to do this anyways cuz I like the cable integration through xbox. Other then that unless you plan to upgrade to ps4 pro you probably won't need any other hdmi 2.0 ports. But there is solutions you can get a cheap hdmi switch or if you have a home theatre you'll probably want to upgrade to a 4k reciever anyways which will just pass through the video signal.

The LG C7 is on sale for $1999.99 for the 55" and 2999.99 for the 65" at best buy now.

I bought it 3 weeks ago and I was able to get a price match adjustment and keep the free TV wall mount since their manager said returning it was not necessary
(I did not open the wall mount just in case it was needed for the return. The old sale they had was $2499.99 and get a free TV wall mount).

Rated the best 2017 4K TV by rtings.com for overall multi-purpose usage.

Digital Foundry recommends the LG B6 which is last year's model but they also
highly recommend the Sony XE900 for the mid-range set of tvs which are on sale during black friday for around $1200.

If you have a 4K HDR TV, run the youtube app on your TV and this video. It should display in HDR on your TV if it is compatible
and it really demonstrates a major difference in colour vividness over non-HDR tvs.

Bumping this thread now that we're in Black Friday season.

I'm torn between the Sony X900E and the Samsung QLED (QN49Q6FAMFXZA).

Both will be around $1000 in the 49' display I'm after.

I'd be willing to pay $1400 if there was something that was can't miss otherwise. Can anyone make a reco between the two, or anything else?

Get the 900e. It's the better TV, it's FALD and has better HDR, lower input lag also Sony does a great job up-scaling lower Resolution content. QLED is just marketing its just regular old edge lit Led TV, it's probably a fine TV but the 900e is the clear choice here IMO.

Hey guys, i was thinking of getting this one, its going to be 800$ supposedly on black Friday.
It's only 60hz, is that like frames per second? Which doesn't sound good.
Going to use it for Xbox one x and movies?

Also what's the benefit if the curved screens I see out now?

Thanks a lot

Totally agree with this post. Sony has best in class motion handling as well. Samsung's TVs this year aren't very impressive despite their high cost, they get really bright for HDR content, that's the best thing I can say about them. The 900e is the way to go unless you're going OLED.

Frames per second is determined by the game and how well it runs on the hardware (the console itself), not by hertz on the TV.
Hertz helps determine how well a TV handles fast moving motion (sports, games, etc.) without added blurring and additional degradation in image clarity
but that aspect is also determined by the quality of the TV itself.

http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x690e
https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/so ... 54306.aspx?

That TV has very low input lag in Game Mode and Game Mode with HDR which is very good (20 milliseconds).
If you use a TV with high input lag then you will probably feel a delay from when you press the button to when you see a response on your TV screen
for any games that run at 60 frames per second.

However, that review says that particular TV model is average or mediocre in every other aspect, including having a narrow viewing angle
and low quality HDR implementation hence why it is cheaper than the XE900.

Curved TVs are supposed to have wider viewing angles for people sitting on the sides.

The 55' 900e is supposedly going to be on for $1299 at the big box stores and Teletime will sell it for that price now. Seems it is one of the better reviewed TV's in 2017. I have the Samsung MU8000 at home right now and I am not sure how much better it could get. I am coming from 1080p Panny Plasma though so my eyes are untrained to 4k HDR content. Looks damn good to me.

Closing the loop here. Ended up getting the Sony 900e during the Black Friday sale. Have been pretty blown away with it's quality at a very fair price. I'd been using the MU7000 from Samsung temporarily, and the Sony model is MILES better.

Great choice, best in class framerate/motion handling (even 5:5 pulldown, etc). Very nice brightness and good format support. Congrats!
