upgrade? 75 or 82
I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on my dilemma.
1. Budget up to $4,000
2. Seating distance 9' or 15' depending on setup
3. Size/placement limitations - none - i have plenty of space to utilize
4. Uses and sources - common TV watching, perhaps gaming in the future, source mainly satellite service and UHD blue ray player however most of my content is not UHD/HDR
5. Room lighting - currently day and night / daytime use once i get a projector
I bought a Vizio M70-D3 and have been thinking about exchanging it.
I'm honestly not that unhappy with it, but the tablet remote concerns me a little,
I don't use the tablet very often but a couple times when I went to use it she was pretty hot,
so I'm concerned if it goes bad I'll be stuck buying a new tablet/remote.
I was looking pretty hard at either the sony xbr 850 75" or the samsung mu8000 75"
but dont know if it's worth it going up from a 70 to a 75 so I started looking at the
samsung mu8000 82" I read some posts where the consensus opinion was that it's better
to get the xbr900 75" at about the same price point. I previewed all these models and the
mu8000 looks pretty good to my eye, even tho I looked at the 75" not the 82" the XBR 850
vs 900 was a little more difficult. I've been back 3 times now to compare them and the first
couple times I couldnt really tell much difference, other than the 900 seemed more saturated.
but today it did seem the 900 had a better overall picture, however, just slightly IMHO.
Perhaps my eyes, not being as sharp as they once were are unable to pick up the difference
and I'd be wasting my money on the xbr 900.
The one attractive thing on the sony is the up-scaling engine, I'm not sure how much better it is than the mu8000 tho - and I usually pass the souce thru my marantz AV7702mkII pre-processor which also does up-scaling so perhaps this isn't a concern for me?
My intention is to get a projector for night time movie watching so the TV will be mostly for
daytime use, since my room is very difficult to light control - it's a multi-purpose room.
bottom line - is it worth it to go from a 70 to a 75 if so... mu8000 or xbr850
or should i just invest in the mu8000 82"
or should i save the money and put it into the projector setup.
((Again I'm not unhappy with the M70-D3))
Thanks in advance.
