This is the 1st TV that I've watched 3D on so I'm no expert but I thought Avatar & 300 Rise of Empires looked pretty good.
I should also clarify that I don't have a problem w/ Direct TV, just that it seems that some channels look better than others & that's probably the case w/ all cable/sat. providers.

Yeah, the HD quality coming from the channel providers varying tremendously. And of course some DirecTV channels are still SD.

We may have been separated at birth. I had the Toshiba 43H70, then a Mitsu 65315, then a Mitsu 73727, which was replaced by the Vizio M801d-A3. I rid myself of the Vizio (see previous posts in this thread). So, want to know what your next TV purchase will be?

I had a Hitachi 50" CRT RPTV (don't remember the model number) for nine years, then a Mits 65413 for ten years (great picture after the glare screen was removed and a little adjustment) and now I'm the very pleased owner of the M801d. When I'm ready to replace it, hopefully we'll have glasses free 3D 8k OLED available in the 90 to 100 inch range at about the same price point (or, more likely, we'll all have inexpensive and comfortable VR headsets by then).

I can't see myself getting a smaller TV. My original plan was to get the Mits 92 DLP but sadly they are out of the TV business.
I'll probably do what Joseph is going to do. I have just enough room for a 90. That would probably be a awfully tough sale w/ the wife though. Maybe I'll go to a 84. It will have to below $4g or I'll never get the all clear sign.
Hopefully this Vizio will last 5 or 6 years.

It's amazing how rapidly larger becomes the new normal. When my wife and I married in 1973 (we both robbed the cradle), we streeeetched our budget to buy an 18" Magnavox for a little over $200. Today you can get a Vizio 60" fald for less money (adjusted for inflation).

Did your Sharp get replaced?
I was following that thread and thought I saw you had a line going through right side of screen or something.
Never saw a resolution post.

No resolution yet. It hasn't recurred since the day I posted. I've already talked to Sharp, and they said to let them know if it comes back. We'll see.
