Hey guys. Long time non-registered lurker, first time poster. I'm finally about to buy my first big screen HDTV (mostly for gaming, PS3/PS4 and watching BD movies using PS3 as BD player) and I wanted to check with you guys on which TV I should get. [EDIT] I knew I was forgetting something: I'm mostly a single-player or co-op guy with real-life friends so response time, while important, is not going to be a deal breaker for me [END EDIT]. I don't particularly care about 3D or Smart TVs though I know it's unlikely that I'll find a good TV without those features. Here's where I'm standing. These are all TVs that I've personally seen in the store:
1. Sony 60W850B. I've always had Sony TVs, though I know that these days they are really expensive and there are better alternatives out there. I like what I've read on reviews but I'm just not 100% sold it just yet. I've read bad things about the 3D on this TV but again, I don't care much for that feature.
2. Sony 55W950B. I really like the PQ on this TV but I'm concerned about black levels. It's also pretty much the same price as the 850B but 5" smaller. I also dislike the chrome finish on the stand legs and screen border, as I prefer the matte finish on the 850B.
3. Sharp LC60LE650. I like what I've read about this set but it honestly doesn't seem so good as the Sony sets when I look at it in the store.
I feel like I should throw a Samsung in there but I haven't seen one that I like and that's within my budget.
Speaking of which (budget), I don't live in the States so prices are wildly different from what I've seen online. My budget is about USD 2K but it doesn't really translate 1:1 to US prices since, again, TVs are much more expensive here.
Anyway, sorry for the wall o' text, and thanks in advance for any help.
