I'm not a gamer so I haven't paid much attention but people seem to like it. My sense had been get the Sony for games and the Samsung for movies. That may be true but the Sony looked so stinking good I'm going for it.

I'm in the same boat. I'm leaning towards the 8550 55" Samsung. Great blacks and great colors. Price is at the top of your budget but will be worth it.

Try reading the owners threads here might be able to give you more info TBH on LCD I would buy Sony then Samsung maybe Panasonic or Toshiba and never Visio. I have 2013 Samsung Plasma ,2013 Sony LED and late 2012 Toshiba LED they all spank anything out of Viseo including the one UR looking at with the Sharp ASV panel, the 55" Viseo might have a better panel it seems to be one of the better Visio picture wise when I saw it and that's what folks say . The Samsung is decent .

I'm not a fan of Viseo local dimming or frame dimming either. IMO too inaccurate and slow not enough dimming zones crushes dark and black detail among other things can reduce overall brightness and they like to clip whites Thats what I saw when I looked at them so did Rtings.com + who knows whats in those things. just go back a handful of pages in this thread and read comments on the Sony's ,Samsung is decent also as long U get one with a Samsung or maybe an AUO panel in it .

IMO in that price range U R better off with a better panel and video processing to begin with that doesn't need that stuff in the first place such as you would be likely to find in a Sony or Samsung or Toshiba or Panasonic .

IMO U need to spend about 4 large to get a set with decent (FALD )local dimming something something like a Sony 65X900B 4K Ultra HD TV or something like that lots more zones and lots of other stuff to go with it you ain't going to see in a Visio at least not the B or M models the Visio Pee <sic> isn't out yet so nobody knows about that yet .

Well, lightning took out my LN55B650 as well as 2 other tv's, so I need a replacement.

1. Budget ~$2000 but lower is better. If there's a unit that is just absolutely awesome but a couple hundred over budget I may be able to stretch it, but not 25% over budget.
2. Seating distance ~ 10-12ft
3. Size/placement limitations -***Edit: Size preferred 60"-70" Placed on entertainment stand, but will likely wall mount soon.
4. Uses and sources - 40% DirecTV (kids shows, sports, lots of HD content), 50% Movies (mostly from HTPC, but some from BD and DVD), 10% online content (mostly just youtube with the kids, but would like to utilize for Netflix, HULU, etc.)
5. Room lighting - Semi-controlled. TV on wall adjacent to windows. Dark thick curtains, but not blackout. However, most of the important viewing is at night so natural light isn't much issue.


Don't really care about 3D, but if it has it it will surely be novel for the 3 young kids. Most critical is clarity of the picture, dark blacks, basically as much cinematic quality as possible. Prefer to have faster refresh for sports. Oh, and no curved screens please.

Smart features would be appreciated.

Thanks for the input.
