The home theater room will be light controlled. Budget is not a huge concern, as I'll be keeping the TV for a good long while. The TV will NOT be used for gaming, 3D or as a computer display. Primary usage will be DTV and Blu-ray movies.
I was considering the upper end Visio series, but it appears you do get what you pay for with them. So I'm open to alternatives that provide good PQ but won't break the bank. I'd prefer to spend in the $2K range, but could go up to ~$3K. Professional calibration could also be in the picture as well, depending on how accurately I could tune the new TV.
The Samsung SSUN65F9000 looks quite nice. Any 'better' alternatives?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Does anyone know when the Samsung 2015 models will come out? I don't need my TV until June or July.
Why don't you wait and see what the Vizio Reference 4K series looks like? They should be out by then. 65 inch will I would guess be in the 4-5 thousand range. Far less than some of the other high end tvs. They will have a 120 inch which may be over 10-15 grand.
I know you said you get what you pay for but I am very happy with my Vizio P series. It has 64 Dimmable Zones and the R series will have 128. Full Array Dimming is second only to OLED which are Extremely expensive. I would say Plasma but they are getting harder and harder to come by and will soon be a thing of the past unfortunately.
Right now the best TV under 2000 is the 65 inch Vizio P Series which has blacks that meet or beat Samsungs best Plasma ever the 8500 series. Reviewed.Com gives the Vizio very high marks.
