Hey guys,
I am looking to purchase a 60 inch and my budget is $2000. I need the brightness of an LCD for the room it's going into. I will mostly be watching blu-ray, sports, and gaming. Motion quality is somewhat important to me. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Brad

This is what CNET recommends for a bright room:

I am thinking of getting the 70" version for a large, bright family room in my new house.

Well, crappy is rather subjective. Sharp actually has 3 of the top LED sets according to CNET:

All manufacturers excel in some areas and not in others. Bright room performance is an area where Sharp does well. If you don't like Sharp get something else, but they aren't what I would consider crappy.

at that price point, the Samsung UN60EH6050 is worth a look
