It's great for gaming minus the lack of Dolby Vision.
Is that pretty much what you are looking to spend? are you planning on buying one of the next gen consoles? You've probably already read these but here are the reviews for the sets from Rtings.Finally going to jump to 4K. Both $479 but the LG has three hdmi ports instead of Samsung's two. I expect to have it for four years before I jump to 8K. Any thoughts or other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

enjoyEnded up getting the Samsung Series 8 75" this morning. It comes in this weekend. I chose that over the TCL, they're the same price, because of the feet. The TCL would require me to reverse them to fit on my TV stand. The Samsung, with similar, and better specs in some cases, a little worse in others, feet are closer together. Had a gift card for $200 to BB and it came out to $1100ish at the end of the day. I wanted a bigger TV, and waiting for 2.1 would require me to also upgrade my receiver and I can't fathom spending $3-4k next year.

Arrived today, and got it set up and going. I really like it so far, but I am missing the Philo and nhl apps. May have to get another fire stick to pull those in. I like that it autodetects the Scorpio and can turn it on from the tv remote and the remote will actually navigate the Xbox menu. Going to try to rewatch force awakens and last Jedi in 4K HDR before Friday since we're seeing the new one then. But, early reviews: highly recommended.We ordered a Q90 over the Black Friday sales, to retire the pretty crappy budget 1080p Tv we've had in the living room since the X1 launch. Scheduled to arrive Wednesday.
