I will pose this question here...and perhaps I can get an "unjaded" answer

I have the opportunity to buy two display LED's....at a electronics retailer...both look to be functionally fine with no scratches or scuffs

Sharp Elite..60"....$1350.00.....no remote and no glasses

Sony 65" HX950..$1490.00....comes with remote

both would have full manufacturer warranty from the day I purchased ..I already called Sharp and Sony to verify this


price per inch the Sharp is less
the biggest deal on the Sony is that is is 5" larger..has the gorilla glass and has a more flat pane of glass look

The Sharp...to my eyes...has a little better off angle viewing and the rep at Sharp told me just about any Sharp remote will control the Elite. I assume they are like Samsung and have not changed remote codes in many years

This would be hung over a fireplace where a few year old 58" plasma is hanging now and will be for casual viewing

My more critical viewing/movie watching is done in a media room with my Samsung F8500 plasma


thoughts on which one to grab?

The Sharp has less blooming and, in my opinion, a slightly better overall picture. The Sony is an excellent set, though. If I was in your shoes, I'd probably go with the Sony because of the extra 5 inches.
