jan 2017| Article on timing of tv deals from last year

"If you thought Black Friday deals were good, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Last year's TVs were discounted an average of 20 percent in many Super Bowl sales. But if you can wait until after the game, you're likely to see even deeper discounts, in the 30 percent or more range. This can mean huge savings on a big-ticket item."-source link

Darn those tv manufacturers, pretty much discontinuing 3d.   I was waiting for variable framerate, dynamic HDR which were going to be available likely late 2017 to sometime in 2018 with the new hdmi 2.1.   But given that those tvs will likely lack 3d, and 3d will remain niche unless something like ultra-d glass-free 3d becomes a success and reinvigorates the market or some big movie pushes 3d heavily again(hopefully the next avatar doesn't abandon 3d.  3d is very important and very immersive if done right), given that, I think getting one of last year's models featuring 3d + 4k + hdr sounds right, especially if you can get them with a very good deal.
