    Best ~46" TV's in the 600-700 range

    I haven't bought a TV in a long time, but we had a power surge last week that destroyed all of our electronic devices. So I'm back in the market. Anybody have some good recommendations for me? I'm trying to browse Amazon but there are five billion of them and I have no idea what to pick. And if CF Sponsor Nebraska Furniture has some deals coming up let me know.

    I can't recommend any specific models, but I'm a pretty loyal Samsung customer when it comes to TVs.

    That was our last TV, and I do really like their products, however they seems to be a the most expensive units on Amazon. I'm open to anything and am probably the least brand loyal person ever.

    I'm an AV snob, so I have expensive taste. But I bought a 46" Visio for a bedroom TV a few months back and it is a solid set.

    I probably wouldn't be happy with it to build a theater experience around, but in 'bang for your buck' it can't be beat

    I'll second the Vizio. Their latest line that they've come out with is amazing for sports and I'd assume it would be great for gaming as well though I'm not in to that.

    Thirded. My last 3 TVs have been Vizio and I've liked all of them.

    Re: Best ~46" TV's in the 600-700 range

    We jut got a 50in Vizio for under $500 at Target ($50ish discount using Target card), I was worried about going from a 42in to a 50 but the new bigger TV was actually physically smaller than the 42in. It's great for gaming and sports. We love it.

    I'm a converted samsung buyer. I had a Vizio a few years back that caught fire while I was at work. Not really sure why but its made me shy away from them since. Thankfully it only managed to destroy itself and my carpet.

    NFM is guaranteed to have the lowest prices anywhere. They scan the internet every day and update their prices to make sure nobody is lower. I'd go check them out for sure.

    Re: Best ~46" TV's in the 600-700 range

    Hey Bryce,
    I recently bought both a Vizio and Samsung tv (both under 50"). The samsung was a smart tv and I have really enjoyed that. It is also a better all around tv. However, it was almost 350 dollars more expensive and I don't think it is that much better! I currently play Xbox One on my Vizio and absolutely love it. I was surprised by how dark the darks were and how vibrant the colors were. As state, the Samsung is a much better tv, but for your dollar you can't beat the Vizio. I also have a 40" Sony tv and have enjoyed that. It has been really good to my family and hasn't had any problems going on 7 years. We also own a Philips, and it is okay. For the money I would say Vizio is your choice if you are not looking to spend a whole lot. You can actually get a good Vizio for much less than your 600-700 range (got mine on clearance this past spring for 425 dollars for a 48").

    I'm a Samaung guy but I do like NFM. Cheaper than Walmart, great financing.

    I recently got a Panasonic 55" LED 1080p Smart TV for $700, so I'd imagine you should be able to get an awesome 46" for that price.

    Re: Best ~46" TV's in the 600-700 range

    Does the 240 Hz help or hurt the bigger the TV? My goal is to talk my wife into a 70" LED for the new basement. And I feel the 240 Hz gives the better sport pictures. Am I correct in that? Any experience with Vizio or Sharp at this size?

    We got an Insignia one at Best Buy, and find it works great for us.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN48H5...0545914&sr=1-5

    might be a good option in the price range youre talking right now

    If you wanted to step up a little more to the ~800 range:
    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN48H6...0545914&sr=1-1

    And i'lll echo everyone that said 'go with samsung'. Ive seen nothing but good things from their TVs.
