Hi there, my 65" Smart TV (1080p) I bought in 2014 was damaged by an earthquake, so i need to buy a new one.

I currently could go with these brands (all in Walmart as they have the cheapest ones, all of them are in the same price realm):

65" 1080p (Full HD) Samsung, Led, Smart TV
65" 4K Vizio, Led, Smart TV E65-E0
65" 4K Samsung, Curve, Led, Smart TV UN65KU649D
65" 4k Hisense, Led, Smart TV

I am worried about the ACTUAL size of the screen because several shops are very dishonest and these screens are not always actually of that size due to B/S reasons, second the latency for gaming, i will use that screen for TV, yes, but also for gaming on PC (i have a PC with Win 10, i7 4790K and a GTX 1070 and 16 GB RAM) and consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch).

So which one do you think is the best choice FOR GAMING?

P.D. I can´t go for 70" or more because my budget is limited

i recently went smart TV shopping and lucked out on both price and gaming(55" philips PUS6262).

if you're worried about size then bring a ruler if the TV's on display(xd) or look up a review of that specific model.

as for gaming i guess look for a TV with game mode which means enough post-processing features that can be disabled for minimal input lag though not sure if that's the rule or not and if you can just disable everything for the same result on TVs without game mode... but it's not like you can pull up a console and test them on the floor.

sites that review input lag have too many holes in them since there are too many TVs out there but maybe you can find your model on them:

Don't buy the curved one or the 1080p one.

Curved is bad, trust me, it's bad, I've had friends who bought curved than returned it to buy a straight screened.

As for 1080p, consoles can play 4k now, so 4k is attainable by anyone with a TV capable of it. So just get 4k and you are good in terms of resolution for many many years : )

So pick one between the Hisense and the Vizio, I'd go with the Hisense since they are more of a global brand : )

To add to this, how important are the smart functions to you? I've setup several Vizio panels for people and the smart functions are flat out awful on all of them. Of course, in all honesty I have yet to see even one high end smart TV a $40 Roku can't run circles around in the smart function department. And Rokus aren't even that good.

Vizio M series or bust, the rest are garbage in comparison.

Yeah, I basically opened this topic to see if there was a D- or E-series Vizio in the list and recommend that you go for the M (or P if there's no real price difference). It's usually not a big jump in price from an E to an M.

M series are the best bang for your buck, but if you're extremely budget limited the Hisense aren't awful. if money is no object, I forget the model number, but Sony's OLEDs are phenomenal.
