Default Buying my first TV of the OLED era and I have no idea where to begin

Hello gang. I posted this somewhere else a few hours ago that turned out to be less appropriate, so I'm just going to repost it here:

So the last time I bought a TV was the Samsung PN60F8500 plasma a few years ago, which is still terrific. But I'm in the process of buying a new house, and will have a kind of dedicated "home theater/entertainment" room that goes beyond a living room, so I figured I'd use the opportunity to buy something new.

Problem is, I have no idea where to start.

What sets are currently at the top of the pile? I bought the PN60F8500 after it had just won the Value Electronics Shootout that year by like a pretty far margin, so it was essentially *the* TV to get at the time. But I've been doing some research and it really seems like the differences between high end sets are a bit less distinct.

I'm reading a lot about this LG C8, but the price of the 77" is certainly giving me anxiety, haha. I've been a Samsung guy for years - do they have an equivalent in picture quality, which is ultimately all I care about?

Do you want to go with a TV that is 77 inches or will you be happy with something smaller?

GZ 2000 only has sizes upto 65 inches. The GZ 2000 will be out later this year.

This is the first time Ive lived in a house for a decade, so I like the idea of a giant add TV. Ive got a 60 right now, so ideally Id like no less than 65.

@Steve Lilley, thanks for referencing my 2015 TV Shootout evaluation event and for selecting our winner.

Love Panasonic's version of OLED, but sadly they are not available in the USA consumer market. LG's 2019 OLED TVs are a nice successor to the very well respected 2018 C8 series.

Our 2019 TV Shootout is now scheduled for June 12-13, 2019 at CE Week NYC, Jacob Javits Convention Center.

Hope to see many of our Blu-ray.com members and visitors.

Robert!

This was years ago now, but we chatted a bit over email (and maybe once on the phone) and buying that TV from you is literally the most pleasurable retail experience I've ever had.

All week I've been honestly really close to just calling you up and saying "here's what I have to spend, what am I working with," haha.

I'm making sure I'll be there both days (it's unfortunate that you're not holding it in store because I love the town of Scarsdale).

You begin by asking yourself two questions:

1. What size are you looking for?

2. What's your budget?

Once you answer both questions, it'll narrow your choices down for you.
