TV shopping?

My BIL is into all this stuff. He knew we were looking. This morning he called to say this has it all and is the best deal. Thought I would share.

Samsung HD Smart TV's by far the best picture quality.

I still have a plasma that's running strong from 03. It's a pioneer, it's in my bedroom. I'm on my 2nd one for the main tv room.

Problem is you really can’t enjoy the true benefits of 2160p let alone 1080p for very little is broadcast in it. Still most broadcast are 780p from what I read.

Had a nice Sony for 2 years crapped out. Been on a Samsung for 5 and been happy. Sometimes you just get a bum unit I think.

Amazon Fire TV has the best 2160P and higher enabled box. YouTube has 4K stuff but can't appreciate coming through a cable box

Well, the Samsung is pretty awesome, after a couple hiccups getting it and getting set up. It is smarter than me, and like my laptop, I will probably only utilize 10% of its capabilities. First unit showed as shipped with a tracking number. But somewhere between BB and the shipper, it was lost. So finally had one shipped to a local store and went to pick it up on Friday. Very crisp picture, even if not broadcast in 2160 or 1080..... it is really good. And I thought the old one was good!
