    I’m kind of interested in a Samsung TU8000 43” for a small living room as a secondary tv. It seems everyone has this on sale now for $327 do you think it’s likely the lowest it’ll get?

    I ask this because maybe 3 years ago I was waiting for BF to buy a new iPad and it was already on sale and a ABT salesman said Samsung runs sales for 3 or 4 weeks and that’s it... no special BF sales. If I remember correctly there weren’t any further Samsung discounts on BF.

    Do you think the LG UN7300 would be a better choice over the Samsung TU8000... I’ll be mainly using for tv watching no streaming?

    both mfg/models have own apologists
    I would try to watch both of them same time to see a difference what your eyes could find

    as to the price, I recal seen a trend for many models at site with funny name like camelcamelcamel

    I've tried the LGs and all I have are Samsungs. That 8000 should be just what you want. Reasonable price for it, too.

    Thanks Rich for your input!

    Would like your opinion would it be a waste of money spending another $100 for the Samsung 43 inch Class QLED Q60T Series keeping in mind it will only be used for tv watching (SDR content). I do watch sports whether that makes a difference or not.

    RTings reviewed them both but while the Q60T is slightly better overall it has worse motion handling due to its slower response time Samsung Q60/Q60T QLED vs Samsung TU8000 Side-by-Side TV Comparison

    If I was buying a new TV to watch SD content, I would buy a 720p or 1080p TV.
    This is closer to the content you will feed to it and does not manipulate the pixels near as much as a 4k TV. Many of the Sports use 720p for filming.

    I have a 4k TV and refuse to watch SD content on it.

    Don’t really want to do that when we’re not talking about that much difference in money. I’m currently feeding that tv a signal via coax down converted from an HD Receiver but at some point will put a dedicated HD Receiver on it.

    I have a QLED, a Q90R. The PQ is much better than my "normal" 4K Samsungs (65" JS8500, 60" KS8000, 65" NU8000, 55" MU9000, 55" MU8000). With Samsungs, the higher the model number, the better the set. So, you're comparing the worst QLED to an 8000. Probably not the best comparison, a better comparison would be the Q60 to a TU6000. Or a QLED Q80 to an 8000. If you compare a Q60 to a 6000 you'd see a different opinion about motion handling. I'd think the Q60 would be much better.

    Looking at Best Buy's website, the 65" and below TU8000's are only discounted $22 right now. Since this TV is only $350, I don't think you'll see a $100 discount, but you might get a $50 if you wait and watch it. To me, a $22 discount means it's not really on sale. The downside is that you may spend more time looking for that extra $20 than it's worth. If you were talking about one of the higher end 65" or better guys, I'd say wait. Those sale's tend to range between $200-$500. So it's worth it to hold out for the sale.

    My son has the 50" version of the TU8000 and he really likes it. Granted, the only thing he uses it for is his Xbox. I like it because it replaced a 55" Panasonic Plasma and I can finally stand in his room without sweating. I think my A/C bill may have dropped as well :)

    Once upon a time, I had ten plasmas in my house. Didn't have to use the furnace much in the winter.
