Can get same mode/price in Costco. Other than that this is an amazing deal for this size

It seems to be native 60hz, so not the best for a ps5 I believe.

OP not for me but regardless, thumbs up for cheesy pun
this is the way
Samsung's Motion Rate isn't the same as native refresh rate. It's a fake marketing term and should be halved anytime you see it. This TV is 60hz.

This is not a good TV. It is however HUGE and the price is decent for the size.

If you just wanted something for the kids or arent going to watch anything you really care about, or really just need a giant TV, this will do.

With short throw laser projectors coming down in price, does anyone have a good reason to go with a large TV instead of a decent projector. I know brightness is an issue but it seems to be well mitigated with short throw laser and if still not good enough, an ambient light rejecting screen gets you very close to good quality image even in fairly bright room. For most other use cases, like home theatre room or a room where you can easily close blinds, etc. I don't see any good reason in buying a huge TV for a price where good projectors can be had. But I would love to hear some opinions for those who are considering buying this instead.

I would not buy a samsung, I brought the RU8000, 82" from Costco in Dec 2019, for <$2k, My unit came with a crack, rtings team too got a tv with the same crack: https://i.rtings.com/assets/pages/ySew9 ... -large.jpg but Samsung won't acknowledge that and is essentially out of warranty since day one.

Avoid Samsung at all costs.

Worth spending a little more just for them to ship it to your house.

I own a 43" TU7000 I briefly used as a monitor, it's a comfortable cozy TV. Good for average TV and Sports watching. Nothing stellar, no deep blacks, colors were decent.

Getting this for $1600 at 82" is tremendous.

For the size, its a good price.
I would say its enough for netflix/youtube.

But remember that the spec is outdate,
and I always believe that TV shouldn't advertise HDR without FALD, and the peak brightness on this model is also very poor.

I have a projector in my living room. It is practically unwatchable during a bright day.

a high end tv beats out a high end projector in every category except screen size. If you want to go big, then you only have a projector. If you want the best picture, then you get a tv.
I have a projector for my home theater, but use a tv in my living room for most things.
