Take 1 was for my home office, when I bought a couple 4K monitors for my Mac & work PC.
This time around it's for the family room. I currently have a 2001 Mitsubishi 65" HDTV. It's worked well over the years, but started to have a problem with convergence when first turned on. It used to be a rare occurrence and the picture would snap back into shape fairly quickly, but it's now happening multiple times per week and taking longer to snap back.
The current TV is a huge rear-project unit, so the screen of the new TV will end up about 2 feet further way. As such, if I stayed with 65" the new TV would be smaller in my field of vision. So I looked around for 70"+ TVs and decided to go with a 75" VIZIO P-Series Quantum X, it's scheduled to be delivered on Monday. As luck would have it it's currently on sale for $1300 off! Resulting price of $2199 does sound expensive, though it's less than half what the Mitsubishi cost me back in 2001 (and that's not even accounting for inflation).
On the wall behind my TV is this:
I don't want to mount the TV to the wall on the off chance it hits a wire inside the wall, so I'd been looking around at TV Stands with integrated mounts for a while. I finally found something I like. Specs I found said it only supported up to a 72" TV, but I suspected it was mostly a weight limit based and that it'd be fine with a larger, newer TV, as they're thinner and lighter than older models. I contacted Z-Line and they confirmed the specs were based on 150 lbs and that it'd work fine with the 80 lbs VIZIO. It'll be delivered tomorrow:
