Wife approves 75-85 inch Sony 4K TV for Christmas 2018

Okay, so this morning, wife decides she wants to replace our current 55-inch Sony Bravia TV that we’ve had for going on 12 years with a Sony 4K UHD Smart TV. She is also willing to consider Samsung. We are looking at Christmas to purchase as the one big gift we are buying each other, as we are are also flying to Texas the day after Christmas first-class to visit our grandkids.

The TV does not need much as far as apps, as we run 95% of what we watch through a Roku box (YTTV, Netflix, Amazon, Vudu) and will be purchasing the 4K compatible box during Black Friday. It will also be hooked up to an attic mounted antenna.

I may be able to get her to hold off until the pre-Super Bowl sales, but if we were to spend up to $3,500, what should we consider looking at? I would consider other than Sony and Samsung if they are a good value.

I own a Sony. Get the Sony. The picture processor is fantastic.

Black Friday week usually has the best prices of the season.

The Sony XBR85X850F is $4000 now, so it'll be under $3000 by that time, maybe lower.

I might lean towards the Samsung, the QN82Q6 is around the same price.

Both have higher models at much higher prices that can be considered if budget isn't a problem

I'll probably be looking for something around this range towards Black Friday this year. The Samsung KS8000 65 inch TV looks small in the living room that we have in our new house, and my wife approves of something bigger.

Sony seems to be the best option at 75 or higher according to reviews on RTings. Sure wish I had an extra $9K lying around for that 77 inch LG OLED though

I have the Sony 75" 940C.
It truly is amazing.
I'll be buried with mine.
