I have been scouring the internet and local electronic stores searching for the first TV I will buy on my own and I think Ive finally settled on my choice of the UN55EH6000 or possibly the 60in model. I was also looking at the Vizio E601i-A3 and the Sharp Aquos LC-60LE640U decided on the samsung for the better viewing angle than the other two according to consumer reports.
All I care about in a TV is HD picture quality and having a decent viewing angle. Other factors like remote controls, sound quality, and smarts apps dont matter to me as I will be using other products. 3D has never really interested me and I feel like the extra cost of that is keeping the next level of quality TVs out of my price range. However, if a TV is the best quality in the 1200 and below price range that has it, so be it. I havent used 3D as an excluding factor in my search whatsoever. It just seemed like these 3 TVs were the best bang for my buck.
I have looked at some plasmas that seem to meet these characteristics, but I watch TV in a bright room, during the day most of the time, so I dont think its an option. However, Im not opposed to a plasma at all, if it has good quality and can be used in a bright room.
I was hoping to find 2 things out. First, if people have been happy with the Samsung as a TV. Second, and more importantly, if I have looked over a better option in the 1200 and below price range. Id be willing to go as small as 50ins to get the best picture quality to meet the price range but obviously would like to go as big as possible.
