Yup, it should fill the spot on our “media wall” thing nicely.....

The wall was an upgrade, it’s basically a big blank slate (with conduit/power) flanked above, below, and to the sides by cutout shelves that are damn near exactly the dimensions of most 75” sets (roughly 66”x38”).

I considered getting a full surround setup as mentioned before and an OLED set, but that shit is just lost on my wife, making it a waste of guitar/PC/landscaping money. She was actually unhappy that I insisted we chuck our 2005 year model Samsung 40” when we left Maryland, and it had burn-in so bad it was hard for me to watch. Never phased her though, she’s usually more listening to the shows than watching them.

Ditto a receiver and good speakers, she was fine with the built in sound, so a $130 2.1 sound bar is going to be a massive upgrade to her. I may take the savings and get an Xbox One X, but she couldn’t give a shit about the home theater experience, and this low equipment footprint will keep those shelves/bays pretty clean.
