To those who might be interested, it's a Sharp TV...which isn't in the subject line.

Keep in mind that Sharp in North America is Hisense, it is not what Sharp used to be.

from Wikipedia:

After years of huge losses in its overseas TV business, Sharp sold its Mexico TV factory to Chinese electronics manufacturer Hisense for $23.7 million in July 2015. The sale includes rights to use the Sharp brand name and all its channel resources in North and South America, except Brazil. This meant that Sharp has exited the TV market in the Americas (except Brazil).[27] It was a sign showing Sharp's rapid decline in that market, where it once was one of the leading manufacturers for LCD TVs a decade earlier.[28] Sharp's television market share in North America was 4.6% in 2015.[29] However Sharp remains the biggest television brand in the Japanese market.[8]

How is HiSense compared to lets say a Toshiba or RCA?
Are they decent? Meaning they won't break after a year or so...

No personal experience with any of these brands but I assume they should be similar. Maybe Toshiba being better but I don't know that for sure, would need to do some research.

My research is low end Sharp and Best Buy only Toshiba are made by Hisense. They should be one notch better than RCA.

By the way I have this Sharp which I bought from No Frills last week and to my surprise they have an OTA firmware upgrade two days ago. My TV is connected to the internet via 5Ghz wifi.

Last year around the second saturday of December 2017, Maxi had their monthly tax holiday.
(They pay theirs sales tax or 15% discount in Quebec.) The set was a 50 inch 4K Smart Sharp of the Aquos line with HDR.
Final price was 399.99 tax in. The set performs well ,this years model offers 120 Hz motion.
Black Friday is another Huckster inspired Holiday to part fools from their money.
The chinese factories pump out these sets but the price keeps falling since the market is saturated. Retailers need higher margins
to stay afloat with new generations of these LCDs such as OLEDS etc. whose supply is limited because they are riding the demand curve.
Depending how sales are today determines how great Boxing Day discounts will be.
Unlike you and me who pay bills on 30 day terms, big box retailers get 180 day terms.
