Well... I got the 75" tcl for $700 and I'm not even a little disappointed. PQ is heads and shoulders above what I had and it's a significant jump in size too, though it still looks kinda small in the pics!

It looks a lot better in person than in those images. Sharper than what I had before and the colors for sure pop a lot more. I'm still tweaking and playing with settings too.

The way the bolt pattern lines up in the back it mounts higher than the old one. I have it adjusted as low as it'll go right now without drilling new holes and moving the whole thing down. I really don't want to do that so I'm gonna give it a week or 2 and see if it still bugs me. I don't have to crane my neck or feel like I'm looking up because I'm able to tilt it down. It really only bugs me because of the gap between the speaker and bottom edge of the screen.

I'm happy! It's a big improvement from what I had.
If you haven't done it yet go to rtings page for that set and use their calibration settings. I've done it for a few of my TVs and have been very happy with the results.

Congrats on the new set.

Hisense H9F is getting alot of great reviews. I have a tablet by that company and it shocked me how good the colors were. Congrats on the TCL great TV for the price.

I've never heard of rtings before but sure would have been nice to look over that site before I bought! I s'pose the good news is that one of my new tv's strengths is gaming and that's when I'd be needing it the most.

They don't seem to have my specific model (S423),but they have what looks like the newer version (S425) calibration suggestions. I could easily be missing something tho, I've never navigated that site before...

That's also partly how I justified tower speakers and a separate amp to myself too!

I do like to crank it up sometimes and I've pushed the towers harder than I wanted to push the bookshelf speakers. Not my normal listening levels, but every once in a while...

Good site for TVs and monitors. I've used it quite a bit to help with my TV purchases. Hasn't steered me wrong yet.

Honestly, for you I'd just put it on the picture mode for what you're doing and be done. You'll be happy with that.
