Trying to decide
1. Budget: ~$1500
2. Seating distance: 10-12 feet
3. Size/placement limitations: None but looking at 55"
4. Uses and sources: main TV viewing (Xfinity) and console gaming (XB360) with an eye on streaming
5. Room lighting: fairly bright (living room with windows)
I have it narrowed down to several Sonys that I like:
XBR55X850b - $1999, 4k (future proofing?), awesome reviews, but above my preferred price
KDL55W950b - $1100 with my Sony Rewards, mixed reviews
KDL60W850b - $1100, larger screen, mixed reviews, but maybe slightly more positive than the 2014 model
I'm replacing an ancient Sony rear projection LCD. I could care less about 3D, but it seems standard on the better sets; toss up on viewing angle vs. blacks/contrast. I due worry a bit about game lag, but this will mainly be for TV viewing. I like Sony and have the bonus of being able to get a huge discount on the KDLs from sonyrewards.com. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
