3d tv dead
Curve TV is silly
4K/UHD : don't believe in UHD-certified cr@p, check rtings
Android TV: nice to have but non-essential

OLED > FALD >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> edge-lit

Plasma or gtfo.

Sadly, they don't make them anymore...

Clearly you haven't watched a quality OLED TV. They eclipse plasma in every way ;).

Not any of the ones I have looked at. ( was looking as recently as last week)

They still lack the deep warm natural color depth you only get with a high end plasma.

My F8500 won't be going anywhere any time soon, for that reason alone.

I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. OLED looks better to me.

With ~$1k budget. Probably best you can aim for is something around 55" 4k LED TV with limited HDR. Smart function will probably be built in but will it be useful is another matter. If you boost your budget to about $1250 I am sure you'll have a lot more choices especially with black friday around the corner.

no but i am looking to get a used tv so a $1k budget for a used tv would mean the tv was originally like $2500 in store...

Holy cow, where do you live?

Around here 1k on a used tv means they picked it up on sale 5 years ago for $999.00 but they have just updated and will let it go for that. Oh, and low ball offers will not be considered.
