Have you made the jump to a 4K TV yet? It could be the best time to do so, considering the variety of models to choose from, as well as the affordability. That aside, what aspects of the settings do you change immediately after buying a new set?

I usually set the picture settings menu to Movie, Custom, Expert, or Cinema, depending on the model. Doing so ensures that contrast, brightness, and color settings are as close to accurate as possible.

It is usually a daunting task to familiarize oneself with settings in a new TV from a different brand at a go. I often experiment with the backlight, Color Space, Black Level, HDMI Range, and RGB Range settings, where applicable!

I've already seen 8K and higher options as well. It's hard to know where to draw the line. Is there enough watchable content available to make the upgrade worth it?

I was in the store the other day, and all I noticed was a 70" screen for $698 U.S.D. That seems insanely cheap and I didn't even notice the 4, 5, or 8 k capabilities. I couldn't take my eyes off the price tag and wondering if I had a wall large enough to place it on. LOL

Was it on offer? That seems like an incredibly low price for a 70" set that usually costs about $800 upwards. With the ever-evolving technology, the least I can settle for is a Smart TV.

With the Covid putting people out of work, the inventory must be large........hence the low price. That's what it sounds like.
If the price is that low now, think of what it will be in 6 or 8 weeks.
