Absolutely, there are even 65 inch TVs close to that price range now. Without comparing side by side in your home you'll be perfectly happy with any of these TVs. Assuming of course they prove reliable but that goes with any brand. We went from a 58 in lower-priced Samsung to a 65in Sony X900 something TV. We were perfectly happy with the Samsung picture but being where we are at this time in our lives we figured we would step it up after extensive research. The true contrast ratio and unbelievable black levels of the Sony blew us away when we hooked it up. The picture was so deep and rich until we got used to it was almost 3D like. I was relieved after what we spent. The more expensive sets in the mid to high price range give you true local dimming which results in true HDR even though just about every set claims HDR it isn't the same. But I'll repeat again all these sets deliver nice picture. It's almost like a good sound system unless you're looking for and listening for every little detail they're all pretty good. disclaimer, I haven't personally checked out any of these really less expensive sets that have just been hitting the market I think there is also something to be said on how well they upconvert to 4K versus the much more expensive sets but again either way people who don't wish to spend a lot I think we'll be more than happy. Ps to quattro, all is good I understand what you are saying with the local channel compression.

That being said, if you have an older tv, the new ones are significantly better. My parents went from a Vizio they bought in 2007 to a new LG that was half the cost a few months ago. The difference is truly amazing.

Meaning, you really dont need to pay extra for Netlfex 4k if your TV has really good up converting and your watching it on a 65 inch Tv at 5 feet or more from the screen. Something in the areas of the Sony 900 and up series and the equal of Samsung and LG. These sets are in the 1200 to 2000 range. not the 200 to 500.
