In the market for a new TV...probably in the 65-70 range. Would love to hear some thoughts on what's out there.

Feel like we need a Soundbar for our TV

Haven’t started looking but I’ve always pondered one on and off over the years

Vizio has been my go to for quite a few years. I'd only consider a Samsung over them, but bang for buck, Vizio is hard to beat.

Amazons own soundbar is quite highly rated.

I know many who love their Vizio tvs. I get a bit confused by their "class" system

You want the M or P series. The D and V series are the big box store versions.

I haven't bought a TV in ages but I am quite font of the Vizio experiences we've had.

Love me some Asus as well, but that's more for computer monitors.

Not sure what price point you're looking at but I went with Sonos throughout my house and even outside. To be able to connect and play music in the house or even different from room to room is pretty cool. That and running the sound from my patio TV through the outdoor speakers is pretty awesome in the fall watching football.

looking at a new TV at some point this year.... not sure how big to go. Currently think I have a 60", but somehow it is too small for the living room.

I also want to get a new xbox, but figure I will wait for the next generation as I don't really need it.

see that's what I need to know. The letters are all over the place, so thank you.

I haven't bought one since I got my Plasma tv Labor Day of 2007 which is crazy.

We're not THAT bad but it's been a few years, for sure.

Most of what we watch is on TVs smaller than 42 or monitors.. or our devices. We're just not 'big' tv people.

Yes, we’ve had the Ring system for the past year. Have been satisfied with it.

I really like the system. For example yesterday, I was watching football while doing laundry, dishes, and other stuff around the house. I turned on the speaker in the kitchen and my bedroom to I didn't miss anything while I was busy. It works great for listening to music or even audio books while cleaning, yard work or whatever too. I'm sure there are other systems out there that I have no experience with that do similar but I've had good luck with it. They also came out with a sub woofer for outside that goes in the ground or some such. I kinda want one but should probably move out of a subdivision first.

Same. Probably going to start small with one for the kitchen since we have had a few big purchases lately and fill in over time.

We’ve got it setup throughout the house and outside. We love it.

It just makes too much sense. Easy, and all reviews on sound quality are really solid. It’s going to happen.

I've been pondering all summer a 65" TV for our new FL condo that we've been remodeling since May. It's finally complete and we will be vacationing there in two weeks so I pulled the trigger on an LG 65C9PUA today. PCMAG shop has a SAVE300 coupon($300 off) so without tax or shipping, it was over $500 cheaper than Costco which has the lowest retail price. I'm hoping the Black Friday deals won't be any better than what I paid.
