I'm looking for an LED lit tv that is 65" or bigger.
I missed the really good deals on the Sony 65hx950.

I have been looking at two sets in the title
Samsung 65" f7100
Sony 70" r500a

The samsung seems like it is a higher end panel with more features while the sony has been getting pretty good feedback on these forums.

I'm looking for something that is going to look good (good black levels, realistic colors, etc) and last a while.

I saw both sets in PC Richards, but their feed and calibrations were obviously horrible.

I was wondering if anyone else was considering these two tv's and if you have any pros, cons or other opinions.

Thanks!

I bought the Samsung UN65F7050 from Costco two days ago. My other TV is a Sony 55 NX8, which I've been happy with.

The picture quality on the Samsung is quite good. And it has a lot of bells and whistles. I still need to get used to the interface.

I plan to try the Samsung for a few more days before deciding whether to keep it or get the R550A instead.

Did you decide on one yet?

Never pulled the trigger on either one.
I'll wait until the first price drop.

Well don't wait...it's $2199 at BestBuy with a free Sony BluRay S5100 (great reviews) and a year of Hulu and Netflix streaming. Mine was delivered this afternoon. Haven't tried the 3D via BluRay player (waiting for discs to be delivered) but the 2D to 3D conversion is quite amazing.
