Homie my only regret is that I didn't get an 85"... This set is for a rather large room and I was debating between 65" and 75", I can't imagine how tiny it would be if I went 65"... If you're buying for a large size room I'd go 85"... though it is quite a bit more $$$...

A neighbor of mine got the 86" from Costco and it really fills in the wall; however, for my everyday Netflix use, a 75" TV will suffice.

Just buy a projector and make the whole wall your TV.

Considered it but just not into it, still doesn't look great in the day time.  I want to be able to watch football in the afternoon with the shades and windows open and have a nice bright, clear picture.  Room darkening in the daytime is really a downer.

I got the LG UH9500 at Fry's last week: http://www.frys.com/product/8726891

Fry's email promo...$1,200 off. Paid a total of $1,450 for the 65" and delivered this weekend. Incredible deal - I'm a believer in Fry's now!

bumping up this old thread

does anyone know if wall bracket points (width) now are standard across all new LED type TVs - so lets say I buy a 65" Samsung LED TV for my living room , realize it is too small for the large area and end up swapping it for an 85" Sony  LED  -- will I need to move the brackets out again. 

Also for TV wall mount  instals -- has anyone used Best Buy services ?  Or just going with your local handy man (as we have done so far ) is probably ok ?

thanks

VESA standard?  I think you will need to look up the VESA standard on both TVs. 

A quick search found Samsung 65" with 400x400 and Sony 85" with 400x300. 

Your mount should support multiple standards, but you probably don't have the details for that.  I'd guess that it supports both.

You won't need to move the bracket. Just keep all the screws they give you so you can put them on the new tv.

Hmmm not likely the mount would work, there aren't many wall mounts for 85" TV's, there's hundreds of options for 50-65".  Like others said it's based on the VESA standard so you'de have to check.

I'm not the handiest guy but wall mounting a TV is one thing I can manage myself.  It's probably easier than you think.

Bunch of them now and they range from 45-85 inch for some brackets.

Just make sure the weight requirement on your current mount is okay for the 85". The VESA pattern should fit.

I think the mount for our 46" will fit on a 65" (which actually weighs less because our old 46" is heavy).

Why buy 4K when 8K is coming out? We all have to upgrade once again.


Edit: just read the first 8K tv should hit CES in 2018.

Why buy 4K when 8K is coming out? Seriously in 2020. It'll be the future of in-home VR. We all have to upgrade once again.

When would 8K content even be available?  4K finally will come in next year.

I think VR is all hoopla.. nobody wants to wear those headsets.

I edit above, sorry. I read the first 8K is coming to CES in 2018. Don't say people won't buy 8K. It took a while to get households to believe in HDTV back in 2002+ before everyone had one, and now we had 4K and then 8K.

May take a while before they have content but atleast 8K will play 4K and 1080P still. All backwards compatible.
