I bought this TV when it went up for sale like 6 months ago on woot for $1249 to put in our new house and it’s been amazing.
It gets so bright that it defeats direct sunlight glare from an adjacent window during the day (the whole reason why I bought it to begin with).
If I still didn’t have to buy a bunch more stuff for the house I would be getting a second one right now to replace an older 1080p set I have in another room.
I purchased this television new and it is fantastic. Keeps up great with a room bathed in sunlight. At night there is some blooming but all in all you can’t beat this display for the price.
