This is my new and first 70" tv, it looked small on the store floor, but in my house looks gigantic, went with the vizio because of the price, i had a low budget. Also got a lg sound bar with wireless subwoofer with 50% off smile.gif, and added some led to the back when hanging the tv.

I love this!! I dont want to go to work hehe

I'm jealous! tongue.gif Congrats on the new baby in the family, though don't be surprised if after a few days it grows really small (especially when you watch widescreen movies with bars on top and bottom) and you're seriously questioning why didn't you go with an "80 or "90 model for the 'perfect' size. biggrin.gif

I have the same feeling having just graduated from a 60" to a 75", the difference is startling.

Hey 1000, what distance do you watch your 75" from? I was considering the samsung 75 es9000 now that can be had for a discount, but I fear it will be too big for my viewing distance of about 8 feet. I had a 65" sony HX929 and at 8 feet it was perfect for my viewing habits, mostly bluray/hi def sources and console gaming in a dark room but I didn't like the visible banding on panning shots and decided to get a refund. I am not sure I want to get a smaller screen (55") and I want a quality screen with good uniformity and from what I read here generally the 75" samsung seems to have a good uniformity for a screen its size even being edge led. So I don't know if 8' distance will be enough... (sorry for hijacking the thread)

I am just over 10 feet from my ES9000 and it's great from that distance. HD material looks amazing, SD not so much but you'd have to be 15+ feet or more away from a 75" screen for SD to look sharp-ish. That said, SD is perfectly watchable from 10 feet as long as you are happy to accept that it is what it is.

I'm pretty sure if I went forward to 8 feet HD would probably still be pretty darned good.

Thanks 1000, your comments are very helpful. Now I must go watch some material at the store before making a decision.
