I am still early in my search, and don't need the TV till October, just trying to get some ideas of what I should look at, or if possible wait for a new model to come out if their is any. Thank you again for anyone that helps.
Just get a Sony 8.5x - 9.5x and don't worry about it and hope you get one with a good panel the first time (true with any large LCD panel )

I would like to purchase a TV that is either 65" or 70", the bigger the better.

Budget: ~1500.00

Seating Distance: Approximately 11-12 ft

Size: 65"-70", its going to be wall mounted so no real placement limitations.

Uses: Mostly movies, with some gaming thrown in. The occasional football game, but not too many sports. 3D is not a priority.

Room Lighting: Its going to be mounted across from some windows, so the room can be pretty bright. Its not bad with the shades down, but it wont get very dark during the day.


I've been looking for decently priced 70" sets, but I've currently had my eye on the Vizio M652i-B2 since it seems to be reviewing well. Any suggestions? Should I look into the Sony 65W850? Stick with a 70 and go with last year's Vizio or the Sharp LC70LE850U? So many choices out there.


Thanks for the help!
65W850 is going to be better than any Visio and Sharp at that price

Looking at the Vizio M602i-B3 or Samsung UN60H6300 (BJs/Costco). Smart features don't tip the scales (I have Rokus etc in the house), both look like they perform well to my eye. However, looking for opinions based on experience with movie, tv and sports content -- hard to see all of those at your local warehouse store. The CNET Review gave decent marks to both - I'm mostly concerned with black levels, viewing angles and overall picture quality. Any other input is appreciated - or even new suggestions.

Hope this isn't asking too much. Thanks!
Sony 60W850B or 65W850B

Agree with above. In the size range you're looking at Sony gives you the best bang for the buck. In the $2300 range don't rule out the 65s990a which is passive and I think uses a panel similar to the 65850a (S-PVA panel). It is curved but if you read the thread here most love it. The foot print is 65" wide.

The cheap ILO tv my girlfriend has is on its way out. So its time to start looking for a newer one to replace it. It needs to be around 42 inches, be good at upscaling 480i* and under 500 dollars. Any recommendations are welcomed.

*
She has an older dish dvr and hasn't upgraded to the newer receiver, because she has so much stuff on the dvr that she still wants to watch. So everything for the next few years will be in SD.

SD is crappy on most flat panels tell her to upgrade to HD service or you won't come over there anymore
especially during football season !

Her DVR *may support HD * and only need to be re-configured by installer not hard to do (they know how )
and just require re provisioning + maybe some dish pointing up top by installer. Dish HD uses 3 birds instead of 2 , previously recorded media will remain on device they will provide HDMI cable also ☺ tel # is 1-888-615-3725 ☺


DVR have been like that a long,long time so she might be able to keep her 1970's sitcoms ☺☺
If she has Dish ViP 612 ,622, 622K,722, 722K ~ maybe some others ( ~2004 -2006 + ) they support HD fine
Hopefully she has # 500 dish on roof if not they should provide one with a new 24 mo contract commitment .
hopefully you/she will get an intelligible CSR ha ha If she is out of contract and mo.2 mo. t they might offer a swinging deal check the website . otherwise xtra $10.00 mo make them do service call free or tell them you will go somewhere else as long as they don't have to wire extra rooms they can usually do that and you may not need new DVR


40" Sony W600B ~ $499.00 sometimes a little less (maybe $10.00☺☺)

Last years 42" LG is OK not bad at all (have one and a 40" Sony also ) LG just not as good blacks/contrast for night time pretty good though and $100.00 cheaper good set all in all has S-IPS panel very good view angle .
You could also take a chance on inexpensive (cheap) Vizio with who knows what is inside of it I won't bother to link

Thank you for you response. I was actually looking at the 950a (the curved one), and the w850b. I haven't seen the 950b yet. Is it worth the price difference from a 60 inch to a 65 inch? Also I was reading that the 950 curved has a more reflective screen.

S#!t if I know ......Ask Oledvegas in the 8x or 9x forum (depending on what set he auditioning this week ☺ ) he will know he's probably tried almost all of them by now

Good guy also, real videophile , He's got an LG Oled also (hence the name ) so he's a bit spoiled but knows his pictures .

I don't know which Sony he is auditioning this week yet , he's the defacto new Sony beta tester here if he says it's good to go believe it ! I know he was thinking about the new 79" Sony last week he might even keep one of those who knows .☺☺

I couldn't tell you about the 65" vs 60" thing that's something you will have to decide or maybe someone else may have an opinion . If you watch mostly SAT/CATV as crappy as HD lite is I would just go with 8x personally unless you are wanting 4K but that wont be on 4K HD lite re transmission for a while

My real TV is a 60" Sammy Plasma ,Sony LED is in my bedroom good set though just no match for a PDP

Actually it's the 65s990a that is curved. The 65w950b has a nice picture with a fairly matted screen, Probably an IPS panel while the 65s990a has a rather reflective screen, probably a VA panel from somebody. The VA panel gets a stunning picture if you can control light reflecting off the screen. Reflective like a good plasma. Just a guess on my part but since Samsung makes a 65" curved panel it's not a stretch to think Sony is buying that exact same panel from Sammy.

Good question I know W800 /w850B are popular the KDL65W850A is discontinued 2013 model some like B's better although A is Triluminous I belive *some 850B might be also .

Considering what ever she has doesn't even have component outputs i am going to guess it doesn't support hdtv. I have tried to get her to upgrade but between her shows she wants to keep and to her seeing no difference between hd and sd its a hard go.


What do you think of the lg 47 inch. I am afraid with the huge border her current one has, one the same size will look small.

Hello, folks.

My name is Antonio, first message here. I need to buy NOW a new TV but I don´t have a clue, maybe you can help.

To keep it simple, I´ll propose the following options:

1. Panasonic TX 55 AS 640E ---- 1100€
2. Samsung UE55H6410 ---- 1250 €
3. LG 55LB730 ------ 1350 €
4. Samsung UE55H7000------ 1500 €

I don´t need something of spectacular image quality, just something decent and fast enough for action movies or the occasional videogame session. It´s important that the upscale is good, as I watch lots of DVDs and SD videos.

Option 1, the Panasonic, is the cheapest one, but I fear that the processor could be outdated so it won´t be able to display smoothly heavy stuff through DNLA. Also, I don´t know if it can display TV content in the tablet through Miracast.

Options 3 and 4 are the most expensive. The LG 730 is slightly more cheaper, it can´t display Flash, if I´m not mistaken but I´ve been told that the image quality is a bit better. Also I don´t know if the Samsung 7000 can stream Flash smoothly enough so maybe the lack of Flash issue in the LG is non problem.

Finally, option 2, the Samsung 6410 is an intermediate option. It has not microdimming so I don´t know if the image quality is much worse than the more expensive 7000.

Thanks in advance.
