TV Brand Choice

Looking to buy a new 65" Living room tv from Costco. Anyone have opinion on reliability/quality between LG, Sony, and Samsung?

I have had Samsung in past and one in bedroom that have been good.

Have a Sony in living room now and have had no issues with it. Over 10 yrs old.

Have not had an LG before but their OLED C series has good reviews

Should I be narrowing selection based on brand, model, LED type?

Budget will likely be $1k-$1.5k

I’ve had all three of those brands several times over with no issues. I prefer Sony because I like the user interface, but not really a big deal.

Look at the TCL 6 series, they’re also very solid quality for the money.

I've got two TCL series 6, 65 inch sets. One on the patio and one in the bedroom. Excellent sets for the money.

When it comes to modern OLED TVs the processor chip is as important or more important than the panel itself. This is where Sony separates itself from LG in OLED type TVs.

Samsung is just getting into the OLED race this year. It will be interesting to see where they fit in.

For now I will stick with Sony because of the XR processor b

We have done Sony and Samsung and considered LG on our last purchase but we have been very pleased with Hisense android TV's. The difference between the best and good is way closer than it use to be and the cost savings are huge.

Just may be bad luck on my part, but I have had two different LG TVs just stop working. One was nice enough to get repaired under warranty. It did it again more than one year from purchase, but under one year from repair. They would not do anything for me. Sony for me now.

Yeah after my own experience and the advices here and elsewhere it looks like Sony is top of the totem pole in reliability and near the top in overall performance.

I'll have to weigh reliability vs price along with warranty. I can get an extended warranty through Costco at no cost when purchased with Costco Credit Card.

It's a shame we no longer get Panasonic. I have two older ones that just will not die. Fortunately, Chromecast makes their terrible smart features a non-issue, and I can use them for outside and extra rooms.

Still have a Panasonic Plasma that wont die. Thankfully. It took too long for Vizio to sort out some issues I had with their OLED purchased in 2020 but it's rock solid for me now at a much better price than Sonys of that time.
