I'll probably get chewed because I did this wrong, but at this point a bit frustrated...

Went to best buy, and a couple of local retailers over the weekend trying to find the "right" tv. Need something 65sh, and am twisted between a few models. I am trying to decide between going inexpensive with the 65in vizio for 1600sh, the 70in sharp, or the 65in plasma panasonic for 3200 (i thought...now I find this model a lot cheaper at several online retailers). Any opinions or help would be great? Also, has anyone dealt with abes, powerseller of nyc, or east cost tv?

Lastly, I need a 60 in tv for my bedroom, and I really want to stay in the 1k range. Any suggestions?

If you ask why so large I'm 18ft from these tvs in both rooms.

It would help to know what sort of lighting conditions you'll have in your new set's room, whether there will be a lot of off-center veiwing positions, what sort of source material is most important for you and what aspects of picture quality are most important to you.

As for vendors I'm a little conservative and prefer to do business either locally or with online vendors with liberal return policies to facilitate easy stress-free returns if necessary. Many online retailers won't accept returns at all on larger sets leaving you to deal with mfg. warranty if the set's defective.

Lighting won't be too bright at all really. I keep the blinds shut most of the time anyways, and home after dark as it is. Plus, big fan of dimmers. It will be sitting at eye level. For 75% of the viewing it will be straight on, and prob the other 25% 140-150DEGREES. I'm replacing the xbr 1080p lcd rear projection from a few years ago that I purchased. The old me would go pay all the money, and buy a new xbr, but at todays prices/technology that seems hard to swallow. The vizio has great reviews on sams site, but not a lot else where. Bang for the buck is def with it. I've never had a plasma, and that is a bit of concern for myself.

Sharp for reliability, Vizio for price.
