Re: Hd tv

Don’t take my word for it but I think there were some privacy concerns with Samsung TVs at one point. They do have the UHD TVs now with HDR. I’ll be listening for comments of others regarding recommendations of brands.

Re: Hd tv

For the price, it's pretty hard to beat the TCL Roku 4K HDTVs. I have a few of them. Think I paid $348 for my 55" a year or so ago.

I agree with the TCL Roku recommendation.  My favorite TV in the house is a Series 6 from a few years ago.  The operating system is much more stable than my newer Sony's with Android.

Size preference? May open up some options if you're looking at a 48" as opposed to a 65".

In that size there isn't much that's very good but the Samsung 43" Q60T is pretty decent and less than $600. The big issue is that these smaller TVs don't have local dimming so they're pretty garbage for HDR.

Yeah. Only one I can think of was the Q60 since it's one of the few QLEDs at that size.

 

I'd recommend LG's OLEDs (CX/GX), but they meet neither the OP's size nor budget requirements.
