Which reward TV should we get?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi! A friend is retiring and wants to use up his points from his work's catalog. Every year you work there you get points. 


In my own anecdotal experience these catalog products aren't as good as what you'd buy at Target or Best Buy. I think they're open box units, or maybe it's like CPU binning, with the catalog units being less reliable, etc. It makes sense, since it's a lot harder to complain about a free TV from a catalog. Does anyone know if this is really how these catalogs tend to work? 


Is the Samsung or Sony more likely to be reliable? 





Yes, it's 2871 as in the year 2871. I traveled all this way, back in time, just to help you. And you thought your mama lied when she said you were special-_-

I dont know who is making Sony's panels, but I would personally say Samsung just because there is one less step of manufacturing and shipping between production and your living room.


Though, the Sony does appear as if it has better specs in all regards being larger and HDR certified.

Probably the NU8000


its a good Tv for sure , not only for normal TV usage but also for gaming both console and PC.


Unfortunately rtings doesn't have the X800G reviewed, but it has the X800E and the X900F, with the X900F being somewhat better than the NU8000 whilst the X800E being much worse, and i believe its closer to the X800E.


I would say ..if your going for the 55" version get the Sony , if ur going for the 75" or bigger get the Samsung.

I'd get the Sony, IMO they are all around one of the best in TV's.


Take for example their OLED tv's, I think Sony uses the LG panel, but the hardware that drives the panel is way better than what LG themselves use. This isn't an OLED tv, but in my experience I've enjoyed the looks of Sony over many of the other larger brands. Plus I'm not a fan of the "QLED" tech from Samsung.
