    No big house needed, just a very big yard where you could start your own Drive Inn Movie place!

    I need that, the one we have now is only 80".

    This thread prompted me to look at TV Deals, online. Just upgraded my 32" Vizio (6-8 yrs old) to a 40" Vizio for $184 delivered.

    Woo Hoo!! 😁

    *Later in the day, found several TV "Deals" for 43-50" name brand TV's for $69-$75. All were from Asian Co.'s I had never heard of nor could I pronounce them. Payment method for all these "deals," was by Paypal or the like. Had "Scam," written all over it. 🤔

    I have had the same TV for the past 8 years I need to grab a new one.

    I upgraded to a 65" Toshiba Fire TV. Had a 55" that was beginning to have a few issues. Most unsettling being that it would turn itself on in the middle of the night.

    @susie No Problem, It was just the ghost who was bored & wanted to watch some TV.

    My 50" Panasonic plasma TV must be at least 20 years old and is still up and running with great picture quality. There are a few buttons on the remote that have been worn away and the set needs at least 2 men and a boy to ever move it, but I'm still happy with it. IMMIC, I paid around 2K for this set and the 20 years of service means it doesn't owe me anything.

    susie - That would be cool to deter would be burglars.

    My hand me down but I did work for it Sony Bravia gawed only knows how old it is. I figure by the time mine dies the price or a competitor 115" will be reasonable in price.

    The price of tvs has gotten stupid cheap. The reason is these smart tvs are data mining everything we do, yes, even listening to us and the tv/programming companies are selling our data. That and I assume the "apps" that are pre installed on it are paying to be there further offsetting the cost.

    All that being said I'm not sure I could go back to having a "dumb" TV again, they are just too handy.

    I’m afraid if I had a 115 inch tv I would either get a stiff neck from trying to watch the left and right side of the screen, or go cockeyed.

    Hmmm…so bigger really is better!

  • hoosierhoosier Member Posts: 1,499 ✭✭✭✭

    Just don't have room in the living room for anything bigger than that 50" 6 year old Samsung we have. No wall space

    I's a bit hard to see all the Football plays on.

    Now In the Basement , if I did some reconfiguration of book cases, get rid old TV stand and move the piano ( we never play, my son's) I could squeeze in a 65 " and only have 15 foot to view. Up grade speakers and it might be like going to the Movies.

    As cheap as the TV's are it might just be in time for the New Year ???

    This new house had speakers already built into the walls for front and rear channels. My wife likes to watch TV so we got almost the biggest one that would fit between the front channel speakers, an 82" Samsung. At a viewing distance of 16' it's picture is unreal. With the 5.1 channel surround system and the big screen it's far more comfy to sit at home and watch a movie than to go to some theater with sticky seats and loud neighbors!

    Got a 65" on the wall about 10 feet from our recliners. That's plenty.

  • yoshmysteryoshmyster Member Posts: 20,812 ✭✭✭✭

    shootuadeal  - I'm going to wait for the 115" tv to be in the $1K range before I even think about getting one.

    With me I have no cable or satellite it won't be able to track what DVD I'm watching. Unless being Chinese it'll hack in to my neighbor's WiFi to snitch on my porno viewing.

    That reminds me with a 116" screen one can see ingrown hair from 10 feet away. Maybe the 116" might be too big?
