well my 10 year old sharp aquos finally bit the bullet this morning...luckily ive been ready for it and trying to research a decent replacement, but now my hand is somewhat forced and i had hoped to wait another few weeks so i didnt make to rash a decision.
where i live up in canuck land, the debate is lm7200 vs. lm8600....60" vs 55"...right now futureshop is offering the lm7200 for 1599+tax and ship and BB is offering the lm8600 1799+tax and free ship
both sets come to around 1999.00 when the dust settles.....the only advantage on paper the lm7200 has is the extra 5" size....other than that the lm8600 seems like a much better product, it has the dual core processor and a couple other slightly better features like contrast ratio etc.
problem is i dont live in a town near either store so have to pretty much rely on these review forums and ive learned a lot reading all the pro's and cons...but still have to buy set unseen.
from other forums ive learned or so it was said anyways that when you buy LG true motion that 240 is really 120hz native but with the enhanced it is a simulated 240hz which may explain why a lot of users complain about it when watching fast sports?? i dont really know tho.
im not really sure whether the bigger size of a sooon to be discontinued 7200 is really worth it when the 8600 seems like the "better build"......
and all that said there is the 55lm7600 to make things even more confusing which has great reviews for most part, aside from the usual edge-lit problems that will be appaent in all 3 i would assume?
so if you were me and you had to make a quick decision to get the sale price on the 7200 or 8600, which would you choose, or is the 7600 still the winner which is not much cheaper unless i went down to 47" model.
any input is helpful, thanks
