Ok I have been trying to find the right TV ... I currently have a 55: Vizio XVT Full-Array LED with Local Dimming and I still love it .... but's it time for new and most of all "Bigger"
I have bought the 70" Sharp 847 Edge-lit and it had a bad picture with the worst thing of all for me ... Horrible Ghosting / Halo Effect during sports ... I could just not watch anything without seeing this weird halo around their bodies and it drove me Nuts ... had it a week and it was returned this last Thursday.
I have researched the heck out of the Panasonic 65VT50 (and GT/ST) and though it is the highest rated for PQ ... there are WAY to many post out there saying they have major burn-in ... and with my sports habit and ESPN ... I would have logo burned in in no time.
Now initially I wanted 3D and some Apps .... but I can live without 3D for a GREAT picture and I have so many things that have apps I really don't need em (TiVo,Bluray,WD Live).
So I would really like to find a set thats basic and has the same rear Full-Array LED lighting as my current LED .... seems like thats something only found in high end units now a days since they are moving to this edge-lit junk that doesn not look good and makes the tv thin ... guess thin bad picture is in.
This seems like a TV that gives me 10" more of screen ... which is basically what I'm looking for (wanted 70" but the sharp almost seemed to big so I think 65" at 10' away should be great) with the same rear full-array LED as my current Vizio XVT and none of the other junk that bloats these tv's no a days.
I can't find to many reviews other than on Samsungs site which are all 5 stars and on Amazon (but these reviews are for all sizes of this model from 40-65" so I'm not sure how the 65 is compared to the other reviews) to let me know how good of a tv this is compared to others.
I have been tossing around the Samsung UN60ES7100 ... this has all the 3D and 4 glasses, the smart tv things with apps, and comes with a free Galaxy Tab 2 7in. tablet for about $500 more than the 65" 6000 .... BUT this is only 60" and I would like to go bigger .... is this 6000 for PQ and sports etc. better than this 60" 7100? This 7100 is edge-lit and after the Sharp I am very leery of this now!
I watch tons of sports, once a week maybe a DL'ed movie in .MKV via the WD Live player, and most of the time we are primetime TV buffs (Sons of Anarchy, Walking Dead, Suits, Big Brother, Survivor, Dallas, True Blood and MANY others) we have tons of shows we watch in HD and want to make sure we have a great PQ when viewing all our shows.
Any feedback on this set would great ... from those who have it and those who are aware of the quality and PQ .... please only first hand feedback ... not "what you think" based on specs.
Wish this set had more than 2 HDMI ports ... I really need 4 for my set-up since my receiver doesn't have HDMI ... maybe if this is a good tv I can take that extra 500 bucks and upgrade my current Denon receiver to a newer model that has HDMI pass though so I only really need one.
I appriciate all the help guys and I look forward to some feedback on this Tv set.
