    New Flat Screen

    Finishing up on a major remodel to my home and will need a wide screen TV in the 50" to 75" range to mount on the living room wall I set up for hidden power and signal cables.

    Any recommendations would be welcome.

    BTW- If you've never tried an upgraded power cord for your high definition TV, I suggest you tried one. Based on John McDonald's recommendation, I put an Audience f3 PC on my 10 year old Samsung 50" plasma, and was surprised by the improvement. ;-)

    Hi Dan, I'm not sure the current models, I've been impressed with my Sony 75". I don't think you'd go wrong with either Sony or Samsung for top picture quality.

    Just picked up a Samsung Q8 after a recent relocation and love it. Rich colors and great blacks. Nice TV.

    I just got a 75 inch Sony Z9F. It is great. I got the LED version because I have a bright room. If the room was darker I would have purchased the A9F (which is OLED).

    One cool thing with these TV's is the new feature that auto calibrates the picture with Netflix. It looks fantastic... like as perfect as I could ask 4k to be. Some reviews out there mention the Z9F does not have the level of contrast that would be expected at the top level of Sony's line, but it has not bothered me one bit.
