After browsing and researching for the last two days I’ve come to the conclusion that this is the best value 65” Tv for the price, this excludes untested models like the Toshiba Z770K posted earlier.
It’s got a semi-decent speaker, (especially if your partner hates the look of a sound-bar) great display that in person is significantly better than say an a7g. Agreed the lack of Hdmi 2.1 would turn people off, it doesn’t significantly affect my use.
Finally, Costco, great returns policy, free shipping lowest price, easy to do.
This is only a very brief summary, and admittedly I’m far from an expert, but if $1200 was your top end budget, stretching to $1400 like I have, this has to be a top top contender.
