  1. I should have clarified, 950G over 80"...aaaand I just found it, curiously filed under their LED 65"-70" category, what the? X9500G 85", $6,500~. All of a sudden, Sammy's Q75R is a bargain, both rated equally on Rtings...
  2. I thought markets might have been the answer. I like the idea of Android in the Sony X95G (x950G/X9500G [markets?]). Rated exactly the same as the Q70R on Rtings. Not sure it's stocked in Australia though... Hard to find it.
  3. I couldn't find an rtings comparison to the Q80, they don't have the Q75R, just the Q70 and Q70r. Do you know differences or was it just a maybe a mid-term "facelift" or firmware update or something?
  4. Awesome. Ok, I think I know what I'm looking at now. Time to crunch. Thanks heaps.
  5. So this? https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/samsung-q75-82-qled-4k-smart-tv How do I find out if a panel is IPS? Thanks for helping, I hope this thread helps others with the same questions.
  6. I was thrown off by the recommendation for Full Array with Local Dimming. I've been looking through specs on the JB site and most panels are noted as Edge Lit or "Direct Lit". I'm assuming that Direct lit and Full Array mean the same thing?? Or no...
  7. So what FALD panels over 80" currently hover either in or over my price range? Happy to wait until June and take advantage of eofy.
  8. Thanks @betty boop, I usually stay away from new tech until it’s a) tried and tested by everyone else and b) drops in price, hence why I’m only looking at uhd4k now. However, given the discussion above regarding the sizing and type of backlighting, I do think I may need to increase my budget to not fall too far behind.
  9. Mate just a question, do you have and issues with it being a Direct Lit panel? Do you notice a lack of depth or blackness?
  10. Id give it a gentle squirt of Roundup mate 😂
  11. I wouldn't be able to handle that plant there... Clean set up though.
  12. Thanks @Janjuc, I'll also need to re-run my HDMI's, as they currently don't support 4K. That's going to be a real pain in the ass unless by some Lord's miracle, binding the new to the old and dragging them through actually works... And I'll need to build a shelf under my fireplace mantle top for my center speaker. Currently sits on the mantle top, but the much bigger screen will occupy that now.
  13. Hey forum, My current TV, Samsung 64" F8500, the last of the great plasma panels, is now starting to show its age. At the time, LCD/LED tech couldn't hold a candle to the flagship plasmas from Samsung, Pana and Pioneer (Kuro), that was my opinion at the time anyway... Now, after nearly 6 years of flawless ownership, I think it's time to go LED, especially given how far they have come. I want to go BIG. I have the room real estate to do so and so I'm looking for panels greater than 80 inches. I would like opinions and recommendations on what I should go for out of: LG 86UM7600PTA UM76 Series 86" ($3,500 at JB) Samsung RU8000 82" 4K UHD LED ($3,700 at JB) Samsung Series 6 Q60 82" 4K UHD QLED ($3,990 at JB) Sony X8500G 85" 4K Ultra HD Smart LED ($4,500 at JB) I only watch foxtel in HD, Netflix, BluRay movies and will start purchasing 4K. Is the Sony $1000 better than the LG? Is the Android OS that much better than LG's, whatever OS? SHould I be throwing out any of those options straight off the bat for obvious reasons I'm currently ignorant about? Would love some feedback and discussion about these, and if you want to throw another option into the mix, please do but please consider the prices I've mentioned. My budget is less than that Sony. Kindest, Elyas.
  14. Been using this exact speaker for 5 years now. Same drivers. For $750 bucks, someone is getting a fantastic deal. These punch so far above their weight, they upset a lot of high end purchasers and always create a stir. Obviously for a reason. Good luck with the sale mate.
