75inch TV comparisons / Movies + Gaming


Recommended Posts

hey guys,

 

haven;'t purchased a TV in a decade - im a crusty ol valve amp & vinyl guy, but its time to update from my small ass tv..

 

I am wanting something around 75inch and a budget $1-2k. Doesn''t have to be a world beater - just something that will allow me to watch movies & especially gaming as well (mainly switch + ps5 - but also some PC/Steam stuff).

 

Got it down between these 2

 

Hisense 75" A7KAU 4K UHD Smart TV 23

https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/hisense-75-inches-a7kau-4k-uhd-smart-tv-23-75a7kau

 

Toshiba 75" C350MP 4K UHD Google TV 23

https://www.thegoodguys.com.au/toshiba-75-inches-c350mp-4k-uhd-google-tv-23-75c350mp

 

 

Would consider other brands at the same size/budget. I've been trying to find a site that compares them - can only find the below but not positive if the Hisense is using the correct model etc

 

 

Would love someone to just tell it to me straight which one they would suggest and why. It's not a big emotive purchase, just a practical one 🙂

 

Thanks in advance to who can assist

I reckon you could get a really good deal on the Toshiba. That would normally be closer to $3K than the special price.

 

Be prepared for added extras - delivery and set-up will cost a bit but is often worth it.

thank for responding. annoyingly i tried to purchase the tv online last night but they had an issue. now the sale is over and they wont match it.

 

infact, they have changed the price from 1199, onsale for 999, to 1499. I called to see if they could match the sale price from yesterday, but they "generously" offered to discount it to 1250. which is still more than the ticket price was before their sale. they were super rude as well on the phone, very dismissive. Would have just purchased it online, but they didnt have an option to split the payment over 2 cards which is required due to the general $800 card limit from my bank provider etc.

 

They amount of misleading that goes into our pricing and advertising in Australia is off the chain atm.

 

Nov 24th the TV RRP was 1199

Nov 25-29  sale price of 999

Nov 30th -the RRP is 1499

 

 

35% / $500 price variation over a single  week.  Its the sad reason i rarely shop retail anymore. That, and they never have stock and generally have longer waiting times than getting orders online etc. Pretty sad state of affairs really.

 

I have a similar thing recently about getting a fence fixed. Got quoted $600 (which was crazy overs as only 3 thing wooden panels). The quote was only valid for 5 days apparently. It was a quote for an insurance job so we had to wait for insurance provider etc ( which we told them prior, they verbally never mentioned an expiry date). We tried to start the job as insurance provider approved work - but as expired they put it up to $1100 - so we had to start the entire process with insurance provider again.  The country of gauging we have become atm

if anyone has a good suggestion for 75inch, i would love to hear it. $1000 budget.  Thought i had it sorted,  but not to be.

I have found that they do better discounting when you are actually in-store, as compared to online or over the phone. Is it far to either JB or GG from where you are?

 

And the $1000 budget would be hit badly by delivery and installation (if you chose those two additions). They save you any trouble if you take it home and install it yourself - as they cannot blame you for any physical issues.

 

Not sure about TCL or Falcon, but I've not heard any bad things about Hisense. They don't get super good reviews, but they don't seem to have reliability issues.

 

But, you are looking at the lowest prices for a 75" TV - you would have a much larger range available for your budget if you decided to drop to 65"...

I actually did go in & they didn't do much. & The Good Guys actually deliver for free in Brisbane & can fit the TV on the wall myself, with a helpful work mate - we have had to do them before in the arcade. They have dropped the price online back to $1199, so might go in again tomorrow and find out what the deal is.

 

I was considering the size to 65inch, as when i measured the TV on the wall it looked comically large. We sit approximately 3.8ms back from the TV, so recommended size is closer to 80s., which is why i had settled on 75inch.  I think i am getting long sighted the older i get.

 

Of all the fun things to buy, i hate TV shopping. I always feel like i have NFI what the quality measurement is anymore, as i tend to only buy them every 7-10 years.  I might consider a 65inch purely as the wall it actually sits on is not over wide, but as you said - it does open up the quality.

 

..... I feel like you might have some spicy suggestions at a 65inch, i would be keen to hear if so.

Without having seen them, the Hisense Mini-LED in 65" probably make good sense. There's the current one (U6KAU - $1295 at JB and GG) or the new one (U7KAU - from Boxing Day, $1335 at JB and $1995 at GG).

The discrepancy could be a good deal that JB got, or that GG are aiming to allow for massive discounting on Boxing day when it arrives.

I think JB costs you $59 (or more) for delivery, so you'd have to work on that as an extra (if GG are delivering free).

 

But, it might be possible to get a discount even on the $1335 for the new model, and the mini-LED versions are apparently pretty good. If you do go that way, then remember to set up two settings (for daytime and night-time viewing), as they can be fairly bright.

 

There are cheaper ones (the Hisense A7KAU) which I'm sure you can also get a bit knocked off...but the extra few hundred will get you a better TV if you decide you can cope with it.

 

And, regarding size, we had a 55" which we were really happy with. But we upgraded to a 77" OLED and are now used to that. Essentially, you will be fine as long as you don't downsize - if you do, make sure you set up the room so that you are viewing closer.

so im still messing around with this - work took over but got a day off so keen to sort out

 

as always as soon as i go dow the rabbit hole of researching i have confused myself and starting to self doubt my choices. Ive kinda nailed it down to the below - is there any clear, obvious winner from this list i should consider for quality / price value etc? 

 

Thanks to everyone who has helped - i find it quite difficult to sort out the pro's and cons on stuff like this so really appreciate the help

Agreed!

 

@RaoulJuke, you can research forever online and never make a decision.  Suggest going to a retailer and check the units out.  Just remember that the retailers would have set them at its most vivid, dynamic colours.  Change setting to normal and then compare.

Mini LEDs are a step up from the straight LED version and will cost a little more. But you have to stop looking at advertisements and start looking at the TVs.

 

1. bear in mind that all the TVs will be set as bright as possible. It attracts attention, but can fool you unless you plan on having it in a room with no curtains (and only watching during the day)

2. the retailer may not be keen on letting you change the settings (to 'normal'). And note also that 'normal' will not be the same on different brands. So you'll have to decide on different parameters (look for fast action sequences in movies or AFL/soccer games) when viewing

3. if they're listed as not being on sale, then you can expect a fair discount if you ask properly. You might even get a small discount off an 'on sale' item (at GG, at least). The secret is to only ask when you're ready to buy AND you won't back-out if the discount is not as much as you'd like (there's something in the way you ask this when you are actually keen on the product and a good sales person will notice and treat you well). My question is generally couched as something like "can you offer me a better price on this?". I suggest not even discussing discounts until you have chosen a telly

3a. GG generally offer better discount than JB (in my personal experience)

4. do NOT buy the extended warranty

 

Good luck!

So to follow up from this i went with the TCL 65inch C845

 

https://www.expertreviews.co.uk/technology/tvs/tcl-c845-review

 

https://cybershack.com.au/reviews/tcl-c845-a-superior-mini-led-with-the-lot-tv-review/

 

Paid $1575 due to a pricebeat Vs VAppliancesOnline. Is getting delivered today

 

The big gamble was going with TCL as not familiar at all with their products  but reviews so far are very favourable. I found the picture to be very crisp & due to the mini LEDs will suit well in our space as it can be very bright in the space during the day. 

 

Once its set-up i will give more feedback if anyone wants to know more. Thanks to everyone who assisted with advice, great website this one
