I'm looking to buy a 46-50" LED TV. I've started doing some research, but wondering if anyone has done this recently and purchased. I know the landscape changes quickly. Appreciate recommendations or advice. Thanks.

Depends on your budget. Personally, I think 4K tvs are going to become mainstream in the next couple years and I would wait for that and buy a cheaper, decent one in the meantime. Honestly even a 1440p monitor makes 1080p look like archaic. 2160p has 8 million pixels vs 1080ps 2 million. Keep in mind 2160P can play 1080p just fine as well, it's not like it will only take certain signals.

I will probably only play 1080p through it anyway since I'll just be hooking it up to the PC, Netflix or whatever. Budget... probably under $800 - but flexible up to $1k I'd say if I really wanted one.

Up to you bro, Netflix is already offering 4K and expanding it's line up and PC gaming can already be done in 4k. Idk what size you're looking for but I have 27" 1440P 120Hz monitor that I grabbed for $300 that's perfect for playing games at my desk but still big enough to watch while in bed.

^^^No offense, but can you let a guy choose a TV? Not everyone lives in a dorm.

But.... But... They told me that anything past 1080p isn't recognizable difference-wise to the naked eye. Confirm this brah

Thanks, but I bought a new PC monitor a couple of months ago - I prefer the 1080p 24" monitor (went through a lot of back and forth trust me ;)). I'm now looking for a class significantly bigger for watching shows/movies from my bed.

I kinda want a Korean 27 inch monitor but 27 seems so big for a monitor. I have a 24 right now.

That sounds expensive
I got a 40 inch 120hz 1080p tv for about $350 at best buy

He wants a 50" TV you moron. Not a 27" monitor. Can you read?

I will probably stick with LED tbh. Is there advantage to going to 120Hz on the TV?

Not unless you're gonna hook a PC up to it. Nearly all "120Hz" TVs aren't actually 120Hz anyways
