60" HDTV options
Hey folks! Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
We just had a new mantle installed and it is time to get a slightly bigger TV than the 51" we had before. Problem is, seems most brands make the most options in 55" and 65", and the dimensions of a 60" are much better, since we have a center channel for audio that still must fit in the space. The 55" doesn't seem like a substantial enough increase to warrant the cost and a 65" can't fit while retaining the center channel.
Soooo...... wondering if anyone has opinions on which is the better TV. The price difference is insignificant to me, just want to know the better option:
I lean Sony, because I have a feeling it is a "safer" or more durable brand, but that could be off base. I would say we use the TV for:
- 40% family watching shows or kids shows
- 40% sports - all kinds - tennis, football & basketball most common
- 20% movies, for which we have a really fun mid-range surround sound system w Paradigm speakers/Hsu Sub
Does anybody have an opinion here OR another TV for consideration? I can spend a little more, if it is worth it. There just doesn't seem to be a lot of 60" options.
