    Are you looking big box or online?

    You can get a LG OLED B7 for around 2k

    When you decide on the brand and model that you want, you might wait a couple of weeks. They usually put big screen TVs on sale before the Super Bowl.
    Note that these numbers you are getting suggestions for are also sold at Costo, Sams and Walmart and some of their numbers are totally different.
    Example is my son got a 60" Samsung model KU6270 that has HDR Premium for $599.00 several months ago at Walmart.

    For what it is worth I forgot to mention this tv is a wedding gift. Brick and mortar store is preferred.

    Check Fry's Electronics in Irving or Mesquite. They have several 65 inch LG and Samsung 4K TV's in the $2K and under range. LG and Samsung are your best choices.

    Insignia and Visio are nice tvs but they are not Samsung, Sony and lg. If you want higher quality you have to look at those three and then shop around at Costco and or wait for two weeks when as other said they will go on sale at bestbuy for the super bowl.

    Nice wedding present, one of your kids? I think the Samsungs are the best bet. And for a Sammy you should look at the Series 8 or Series 9 sets. The Series 8 sets are fine, they come with an umbilical cord that replaces all the input ports on the back of the set. Makes it much easier to setup and use. You can get a Series 8 65" set for less than 2 grand...way less. In order to get that quality on a Sony or LG you pay a lot more (for the top of the line sets, I bought a Sony a couple years ago that wasn't top of the line and it went back very quickly. Have no experience with LGs. I think you just get more for your money with a Sammy.

    About the Series 9 Samsung sets: You would probably end up having to buy a curved screen, not many flat screens in that Series. I've seen the 9s and 8s next to each other in stores and see little difference.

    Do look in Costco, with them you get a 90 day return, with Amazon you get 30 days and it is easier to return a set to Costco.

    I am only going to say avoid Samsung for 2 reasons.. One, there 2017 TV's were not highly regarded.. they got alot of crap for moving the lighting to the top and bottom from the sides like the 2015/2016 sets Sales are down bad.. Second they are catching alot of crap(mostly in europe but it is spreading here) for not updating/supporting there TV's with feature enhancements like promised.. Sony and LG have been

    There were enough postings about MU sets that were positive to make me give an MU8000 a shot. If it's bad I'll send it back, but I read those posts and believed them.

    I still don't have it! The first one that arrived had a bad panel. Another one arrives tomorrow, hope it sticks around.

    I know you like yours, you are one of the reasons I bought the MU8000. Let me ask you this: Have you had another 4K set in your home? I have a JS8500 and a KS8000. The MU will be compared to them. I'll be back tomorrow, hopefully in a better mood.
