If there's already a thread for this, go ahead and lock it, but in case there isn't, we should all post our gaming/living room setups to see what we all got going on, you know.

I'll do mine later as I'm currently not in my dorm

ah, I see. how are you liking the Pro so far?

I'm in the process of trying to upgrade my Pro to a 2tb drive, but the damn flap in the back won't open........lol.

to be honest right now I don't notice a difference at all lol

that TV in the pictures is a really old pink HDtv. I've been keeping it around because it's pink but I need to upgrade to 4K soon

hah. yeah, you prob won't see much of a difference with just a 1080p tv.

but at least your Pro will be future proof and ready when you do upgrade to a 4K tv. though, I'm not sure they make a 4K tv in pink. :oldrazz:

if you have a super duper 1080p tv then you could tell a difference. I just have a really old standard 1080p and that's why I can't tell.

and yeah....pretty sure they don't make pink TVs anymore. i'll just buy the sony 43".

are you looking at this Sony 43" 4K tv?

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-43...h-dynamic-range-black/4801700.p?skuId=4801700

that's the one I decided to go with. felt it offered the best features for the best price. and it has 4 hdmi ports in the back.

and so far, no problems working with my Pro.

hell yah that's the one I want!

so you got it? how do you like it? what was your previous tv?

i heard somewhere that if you don't get one that's at least 55" you can't really tell a difference between 1080p. do you concur?

yep. that's the one I got a few months ago.

So far, I like it. It replaced a 40" Samsung HDtv that I got back in 2008.

And I can tell a difference. Everything looks sharper and crisper. And colors seem to pop more and are more vibrant. And that's even without turning on HDR. When you enable HDR with HDR content, it makes even more difference with the colors. Though, there have been a few instances where I felt HDR made the picture look worse and unnatural ( namely with Infamous Second Son ).

Of course, you have to be playing content through an upscaling device like a 4K player or the Pro.

The sound quality from the speakers was also a step up from my old 40" tv.

So, I'd say you'd be able to tell a difference with this 43" tv, especially coming from your current setup.

Will it be as big a difference as those 55" tvs? Probably not. But those larger sets also have the fancier 4K/Color tech in them. At the 40" range, and at that price point, there isn't as much selection. I felt this 43" Sony offered the best features for the best value. It also has 4 HDMI ports in the back plus legacy ports like Component/Composite. I found the larger, fancier sets tend to lack those legacy ports.

This was the review site that I used to make my decision.

It also has a calibration guide which I followed, though I made a few tweaks for my own taste.

If you decide to get this tv, let me know and I can send you my calibration settings as well as try to answer questions you may have.

For the price, I think you'll be quite pleased with this set.
