Price is good, but the reviews for this TV are not

For $300 more you can get a brand new Sony x85j, which is probably the best 120Hz TV for the price

And that TV has probably been on 24/7 for the past year or so

I have a 49" nanocell I bought for gaming last year. It works great for gaming, but the picture quality for TV/Movies leaves a lot to be desired. Not bright enough, which is weird because I thought it was OLED panels that struggle with brightness.

Rent a Ford transit for $30 from Home Depot or Lowe’s. TV’s are very fragile, do not grip the screen with pressure or you are gonna have a bad time.

Could you elaborate on how the Sony x85j line is significantly better?
$1600 at BB for 75", $1200 for 65"

$300 price differences do put things in other price categories though, unless we're talking cars. At another $300-400 above Sony's equivalent 75", that would also be a very different price category.

The Nanocells make great PC monitors, big fan there. I still prefer OLED despite burn-in because I don't like bloom and halos, but this is my second best option.

As a PC monitor, I like to remind folks that your eyes can only handle so much brightness. I turn down my C8 55" OLED to 50% OLED brightness for that reason.

Better Contrast ratio, SDR and HDR peak brightness,...

I've bought a display model TV from Costco before since they were all sold out and was able to get a further discount and also got extended warranty no problem at all. So far have the TV for over a year and no issues at all. I'd take a Costco display model over any other stores. They didn't have the original box but they still helped wrap it up.

This is my problem. Was able to fit a 70" in my 4 door Wrangler, but 75" does not fit. Wondering if I can put it on the roof of my smaller compact SUV's. I know they say not to transport it flat, but for me Costco is literally a 5 min drive...hmmm

I recently bought a TV from Costco and asked them to help me load it into my SUV. I expected 1 guy to come help me lift it but instead it was 2 guys who loaded it in themselves and they laid it flat with the screen side facing up. I too only live about 5 minutes from the warehouse and so far I've had no issues.

I forgot about this being a display model. Your mentioning of 2020 vs 2021 made me realize that there's usually a lot of clearing out going on from the end of Jan onward for newer models. Lots of buying going on too so we'll see how much discounting of soon-outdated models they'll need to do in 2022. Lots of demand for bigger screens these days and people seem vary moneyed up in an inflationary environment.
