what are the good and bad brands these days? Pioneer and Panasonic used to make great Plasma TV but they gave up long time ago. I heard that Sharp and many other brands have been resold or they sell re-branded TVs. I keep hearing good things about TLC. I think Samsung used low quality capacitors and in general I avoid Samsung products when I can. I don't like Sony. that leaves me with vert few options, one of which is LG. I am not sure if they are any better than Samsung.

I'm glad you guys brought this up. I'd really been kicking myself for not jumping on that Best Buy $250 55" Insignia a fortnight ago. I mentioned it to my coworker who informed me of some displays having crappy HDMI ports that don't support "quality 4K" - apparently some ports don't do HDR or don't even run at 60Hz.

I nearly jumped on this but after reading about HiSense some more (and the 40lb screen as opposed to 30lb for most other HDTV) I'll pass. That Insignia is still there at $350 though, it's tempting... but I assume the prices will be this low next year's clearance. (I do remember hearing buzz about how the tariffs and trade wars were supposed to raise these prices, though?)

Check Walmart. They are clearing out their TVs. I think they have at least one 55" at $250.

Sharp=crap.

Though both of ours are still going they failed after 4 years, each.
They were $800 sets back then.

I don't mind that they failed.
Most consumer electronics will fail before they are obsolete.

The problem with both was that the failure was in the power supply.
Cheaply designed with a bleed resistor of 5 wts instead of 10.
As far as I'm concerned, no PS should ever fail.
The light tubes, sure. Amp, sure. But power supply? Thats where the de$ign should be $pent. It was a common issue with Sharp for a long time and may still be because of the 3rd party PS they would use.

Hope my TCL is better built.

.....Samsung did the same thing [ not sure if they fixed it ].....but they used cheap parts.....capacitors that would fail and then the TV would be a dud.......

I went with a Sharp years back to replace a Samsung that had gotten borked by a nearby lightning strike.

About half a year outside of warranty, starring (bright spots) started to appear in the lower corners of the display. Internet search showed a lot of people having the same issue, but Sharp stood by its warranty timeframe.

No more Sharp TVs for me, at any price.

Whenever I can afford a new TV at some point, I'll likely go with a Sony.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)
