Actually my experience was fine with returning the 55X700D I got on Black Friday but I'm in BC.

Is this a good TV?

KU6290Samsung
The only store to have it on sale is surprising.
Deciding between this or the Sony

I would never buy anything other than LG, Samsung and Sony.

Sharp was the original maker of LCD and first to market with their Aquos line of LCD flat panel TVs. Hisense bought out Sharp America and took control of their manufacturing plants for a play in the American TV markets. So their panels would likely be sharp panels from their Mexican plant which makes this a worthwhile gamble.

$1099 and if you sign up for their emails you can get a $25 off $100 code to cut the $50 delivery charge in half or get it sent to a local store for free.

60inch Samsung KU6290 $1099
TV looks good, but my main issue is going to be with the depth of this TV with the stand. I can only go up to a maximum of 266.7 mm (10.5"). The stand on this TV is 369.4 mm (14.5")
So if I can't figure out how to make this Samsung one work, would the Sony one be a better buy?

Thanks

Was looking at 65" TVs myself but noticed these two 60" at Costco (in store)

Vizio 60" M60-C3: $1089
Samsung 60" KU6290: $1289

Vizio is 2015 model, the smart functions are pretty useless as its apps don't even play 4k (but I'll have a PC connnected to it anyhow) but does have full-array backlight, 240hz, and is cheaper. The Samsung is this year's model, has apps that support 4K playback and does take HDR input (althought doesn't display it to its potential). $200 premium worth it for the Samsung, considering the 55" of the same was $799 for boxing day.

Any thoughts?

The Samsung is $1099 at The Source http://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/tvs-and-h ... /108054411
Maybe try PM with bestbuy since it is not a doorcrasher, it should be approved

Sweet price. Will check it out tomorrow. Mind you, now it's even more a difficult decision... I was leaning more towards Vizio because of the price... But now, no idea... Everything I've read says the Vizio picture quality is better.... In person it does look better but I just don't want to be stuck with an old model...

Vizio M series is better.
not sure where you get it is a 2015 model.
I think they are 2016 model with cast built in.
6290 should be compated with D series not M.
