Title says it all.
Also should I start trolling Best Buy etc in the next 4-6 weeks as the models refresh for next years models?
Just like with cheap audio, cheap TV full of compromises - pick which faults you're ok with.
I just need a dumb display with 4K / HDR but I doubt they make such a beast (the dumb part that is).
they do, but it costs "a bit" more:
Thanks, guys. Just so happens my TV is fixin' to die, and I'm also looking. rtings.com changed my mind. Thanks for that.
yes, I found cool feature, search by feature. If you'd click on HDR it gives you few TVs best for HDR in few different price points, which is nice
Dumb TVs are usually the lowest end. They should just make a great UHD HDR monitor without the "smart" features and I'd be all over it.
Some of the "smart" ones have less obtrusive OS than others. You'll really just have to mess with one at a store to see how much it annoys you.
My ancient ST30 Panasonic is technically "smart", however the interface is 'orrible and slow even by 2011 standards. Luckily I never have to use since on-turn on it just goes to last channel - ie: HDMI-1 and that's it.
I think any modern TV which does that, I could live with. As long as it's "SMART" are not shoved down my throat.
Not so sure that this dumb monitor is what I'd call lowest end
Ok, you got me there...
P series Vizio at Sam's Club. HDR and Dolby Vision and no tuner... just a monitor. Although it is smart.
