Hey!

I'm in the market for a new LCD -- would like to get the largest display possible but bang for the buck as well

Currently looking at:

TCL LE55FHDF3300Z 55" @ $599.99
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1913086

Vizio E601i-A3 60" @ $999.99
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5246445

VIZIO E701i-A3 70-inch @ $1899.99
http://www.amazon.com/VIZIO-E701i-A3-70-inch-1080p-120Hz/dp/B009SJNTIY


The VIZIO 70" is pretty much 'out of my price range' as I would ideally not like to exceed ~$1200 but it's there as a slight possibility


Any advice / models I should take into account / good deals ---- and upcoming models of 2013 I should be waiting for instead of buying now?

Out of those two, Vizio and TCL, I would 100% go with Vizio.

I think 46 an d47 inch is the range that is offering the best value right now closely followed by 55 inch. 60+ is still running a pretty hefty premium over the lower sizes.

Truthfully the time to buy was BF when that 60 incher Vizio I think was going for $600... maybe head over to your local Best Buy and see if they have any good clearance ones... some 46-55 inch Samsung 3D panels have been going for $700-900 on clearance starting today.

Awesome user review: "Unreal quality. Sounded like I upgraded my speakers." :D
