Default LF: 65" (or larger) TV

Our new place is bigger and so we need a bigger TV. Looking for anything 4k that's 65' or larger.

Don't want to spend more than a thousand.

Honestly, Costco has got some decent 4k options in that budget. Do check it out.

https://www.costco.ca/Vizio-M65-F0-6...100409299.html

2 Options that are close to your budget, would be cheaper in store.

I wouldn't buy a used TV without warranty if you are willing to already spend $1000.

Maybe scale back the budget on the Christmas lights and you can increase your purchasing power on a TV.

Absolutely not. I have a CX-5 and when I bought my 65' Sony 4k TV I had to use my Explorer to bring it home.

It was risky with plasmas due to the glass screen. LEDs donít suffer from the same weight issue.

The m65 is by far the best tv linked.

Its still risky to do it with any TV especially large tvs. They arent designed to support the weight while laying flat and there is a chance of damage to the screen.

I wouldn't ever transport a TV flat. Not worth the risk.

Yup, a TV is not designed to be transported flat. It is designed to balance it's weight standing up, and if you lay it flat, you're running the risk of damaging the TV. When driving, you're additional additional bumps and vibrations, which further run the risk of causing damage.

Can not recommend this TV enough

https://www.amazon.com/TCL-65S517-65.../dp/B0798B2L5H

On sale at $750 is comparable to a used TV but man the picture quality on this set for the price is just unheard of.
