My buddy returns from overseas in June. I owe him a tv for letting me borrow his car the past year. I'm debating between two choices.
1.) Buy him one of these 55" tvs
2.) Give him my old Sony Bravia 65" 1080p, high quality tv from 2013 models.
I feel like my TV, which sold for $1,800 in 2014, might still be better at 1080p, but it's edge lit and no 4k/HDR. So chances are it's not as nice overall.
I value my current Bravia at about $400 as far as what I can sell it for. So, buy him the 55" or give him my 65" and buy my own replacement. Damn I wish the OLEDs above 65" were priced to buy at my budget. Can't wait to hear impressions on this tv.
Personally, I think I'd rather buy him a 55" and buy myself a nice 75" when OLEDs become reasonable at that price range for me.
If you were my friend, what would you prefer? The new lower-end 55" with good reviews or the 65" higher-end tv from 4 years ago?
