RE: Large flat screen tv's.
I think the WOW moment may have been when you paid for it. The seller is like WOW he bought it!

We purchased a 55" upgraded Samsung three years ago.  I asked the sales rep if 3D was so routine that it wasn't even mentioned in the specs printed on the shipping carton so that folks would be able to see them.  Heck, no, he said, 3D was never that popular, but another problem with 4K is that the main chip couldn't run all the requirements of 3D and 4K at the same time.  Something had to give, and it was a no-brainer when it came to foregoing 3D from about 2015 on and cutting their costs by making the same chip run a larger density signal that is 4K.  That is, the market said 'Nyet', and 3D went away.  Too bad, because I really liked it, and have amassed a very small library of videos with that capability.  Unfortunately, it is now only the 8 year old TV and its 8 year old DVD player that can run those DVDs.

i have never had much difficulty with either those weird eye puzzles, seeing the old lady or the younger lady, depending on how your mind bends the image, and in getting 3D to work for me. I hated the blue and red glasses....they're a bust, even if they work.  Far better is the alternating display raster synched to the crystal lattice built into the special glasses that Samsung uses.  That system works like a hot damn for me.

RE: Large flat screen tv's.
There are calculators out there to help you determine what size of TV you should have vs viewing distance. IIRC a 6 ft distance is about a 50" TV and 9 ft is about 70". Then you start adding all the bells and whistles and resolutions, viewing angles and so forth.

Our church has 3 90" Sharp commercial grade units in the sanctuary. We are looking at maybe replacing them with some 110" units maybe next year depending on the technology and cost.

RE: Large flat screen tv's.
Our recliners are approx. 17' away from where our current tv sits on a floor stand. It's a 40" Sony. 

We did go tv shopping today and I now have a throbbing headache.  Oh-jeez

We didn't buy one......yet. We are bickering back & forth in regards to a 75" vs. 82". $850.00 vs. $1699.00. Same brand (Samsung). It's just that one is QLED and the other isn't. 

Is there a "Shopping For Large Flat Screen Tv's For Dummies", book?  Dont-know

I regard this much like choosing a laptop. You have to actually have to try them out to see which feels the best. Specs only get you so far.

We are leaning towards buying one from Costco. They have a 90-day return policy, and we upgraded our account to get 2% cash back on purchases annually.

RE: Large flat screen tv's.
Sort of on-topic ... ?

I hate buying technology products these days. It almost always turns out to be harder than it should, force me to learn a completely different way to do the same stuff and make me spend way more money than I wanted to, because of the 'technology roundabout'.

I experienced this (again) recently, when I added a new camera to my photog gear. The files it produces are around 20% larger than my other bodies, in itself a bit of a nuisance, but there seems to be something about the files that gives my pooter indigestion. I consequently had to jump onto the roundabout.

Turned out my photo processing software was struggling and/or messing with the files in some way. First step: update processing software.

My updated software, though the very same package I've been using for years, was significantly different to the old, with controls moved around, some missing altogether and some mysterious new ones added.

So now I'm forced to relearn my processing workflow and I'm struggling to get the same 'look' that I was happy with.

But wait, there's more! My pooter is now having trouble running the updated software, running slowly. Do I have to upgrade my hardware now? Aaaaagh!

I'm also finding that the files from the new camera, after processing, bung up Hotmail if I send them as attachments, so I might be forced to use a cloud service like Dropbox to transfer files, something I don't really want to do.

So just buying that bloody camera has resulted in a whole lot of work and extra expense, plus more headaches. I'm getting too old for this!
