bought a samsung 40n5300 around $400 for my parents few months ago. Decent full HD display, Smart tv and DVBT built in.

I got a 55Q7F and my parent like the Smart tv interface..easy and simple to understand.
They having same smart OS.

Even a good kettle uses more power. Power generates light...
My 75" Sony uses 3-400W.. and I'm glad cos the image is super bright and the blacks fantastic.
It all depends on what you're looking for..

The thing is that itís no better than alternative (tcl is just as bright) but consume 2x more. Prism is only good if youíre looking for 3 years warranty or like long delivery time.

Also, you donít use kettle for hours unlike tv

Ok with high wattage any day if the TV can deliver 2000nits in a 10% window

Just a quick check, i see that for the C8, there is a physical soundbar below the TV. Is it able to be removed? P8M seems to have a cleaner look overall w/o that bulky soundbar at below.

Cannot be removed. Why not just get the P8M then?

If no choice then P8M. Although P8S seems to be better but no 55"?

TV show brightness ard 50 to 60.
Movies 70 to 80. I'm not a fan of deepest black in movies.

In HDR mode, brightness is automatically maxed out.

For SDR, typically ard 10-15 in the day, 5-8 at night (max 50)
