    I have a friend that took the picture tube (and the structure below it) out of one of those, and turned it into a funky computer desk.

    Re: Flat Screens

    Any chance we can turn this into a TV forum?

    I searched and didnít see any others.

    To save me from posting another ďschool meĒ thread which is starting to make me feel pretty fucking helpless.


    But anyway....

    I am looking to purchase two new flat screen TVs.

    We currently have a 40Ē Sceptre tv with a Sceptre sound bar. The tv picture is fine enough, and we really only use it for firestick, but the sound sucks, even with the sound bar which is only 80w I think, compared to some Iíve been researching that have 300+ watts.

    My fiancťe really only cares about the sound and doesnít necessarily want to go bigger. So maybe just buying a great sound bar is an option.

    But I think if we are going to do this we should do it once and do it right. So I want to go all out and try to get as big as possible, so maybe 55-65Ē. But I want to be under $700.


    Part of me says play it save and go Samsung, LG, etc. but even Samsung TVs have some one star reviews, complaining about some WiFi upgrade that was needed?

    Hisense, TCL or whatever... ???



    Also, my dads birthday is the 20th and he still has a box tv in an old school entertainment center, which creates problems because I would need to buy a tv and a giftcard for somewhere to buy a stand.

    Then itís the awkward choice of going bigger for me and feeling like a one way asshole, so maybe Iím just looking for two 50-55Ē TVs.

    I see them at Walmart and Best Buy and BJs for 3 or 4 hundred but I just do not know anything about TVs now. Iím worried Iíll buy one and it wonít have traditional capability.


    Any suggestions bros???

    Re: Flat Screens

    Meh.so I ended up buying my father a 2019 LG 50” with a Polk Audio soundbar.

    However, I bought it from Best Buy in Salem NH, and I can not recommend Kenny enough. That associate provided the best customer service I can remember in a long time.

    I hope to return sooner than later and buy a 55-65 for myself, and hope to deal with him again.

    Re: Flat Screens

    FWIW I have a 60” LED Samsung with a low end 5.1 Samsung sound system with a receiver (that’s like 10 years old). Works mint and I was the idiot that paid too much for the TV like 5 years ago. I have no intention of replacing it anytime soon. Newer TV’s are pretty much all better spec’d than I have for cheaper (mine was $999 at the time). I like it a lot more than the other TV’s we have.

    If he was that good, leave his boss a comment or something.

    like 2 minutes of effort on your part will go a long way for him.

    I looked for a manager on the way out and literally was on the phone calling the store to speak to a manager before I left the parking lot and told her he was phenomenal.

    It was funny to hear her voice change because I think she absolutely was expecting a complaint.

    Facts. An email like that matters.

    The kid said Vizio isn’t reliable anymore and are just going off the rep that they are on the level of LG, Samsung but are actually more similar to TCL or Hisense.
