Default New TV

Got home, got cleaned up, and learned of a defect in my LG LED TV.

Apparently the main bored over time loses connection to the components soldered onto the mother board. Resulting in no screen or sound coming on.

With that said, I'm thinking I am going to move my TV in my den to the bonus room.

What are the recommendations of the GS for a 55" TV?

Budget $500 or less.

those roku tv's are great. the price and convenience of the built in WIFI is the reason I ran a line out to the ranch. I have a 60 inch in the great room and 32 inches in the bedrooms, all for about $600 for the 3 tv's.

now for the old tv. fixing flat screens used to be one of my side hustles when the oil patch slows down, but now they are so cheap its not worth the cost to most people. if you really want to you can just order a new board for it and the connectors should plug right in.

I’m always buying TVs as prizes for my dealers but you have a ton of options with a 500$ budget with screens that goes up to 60”

LG, Vizio, and sharp would be my recommendations but you can get a bigger screen with a Westinghouse which we have had for 6 months with no complaints so far

Check Walmart and Best Buy for sales

I just bought a 65" Samsung 4G with built in wifi and we are very happy with it. I think it was closer to 600 but a 55" should be cheaper. I bought it at Best Buy.

I bought a super nice Sony refurb from Frys for 300. I had a JVC and the built in speakers were awful. And then I had to listen to it for years until it finally died so make sure you’re happy with it.

Yea, I saw that, but don't know when I'd get to it. Plus I've been wanting a new TV for the den.

The one upstairs was LED and up until now had, IMO, a better screen then the one down stairs. The one down stairs is plasma and I've always been some what disappointed with the picture.

For example, a sceen that is in the dark, you're almost looking at a blank screen. Same sceen on the LED and you can see what is going on.

I think it is because down stairs get's to much light during the day. I don't have that issue at night.

And our bonus room is darker and not at bright during the day.
