Hi Guys,
we moved to new place and I can upgrade our 55" TV Set. Wife gave me green light smile.gif

My Budget is $3k but it could be stretched up to $4k

Viewing distance 15 feet

Watching lots of sports, Blue Ray movies, Comcast HD channels and Netflix Streaming. Sometimes XBOX games

3D and smart futures are not that important, Other Devices are handling "Smart needs"

Room is very well lit, very bright.

Currently I have Panny GT50 and was thinking about ST,GT,VT 65". I don't think that will work out in this bright room plus I think 65" might be to small. As a mentioned the viewing distance is 15 feet ( Room is 19x25).

So Question #1 would you agree I should go to 70"+ screen size?

These are the TV's I narrowed down:

UN75F6300AF vs UN75F6400AF.

Leaning towards UN75F6300AF because its seems to be same panel just without 3D and lower Clear Motion Rate. But I think picture quality is the same for $1k less.

Another TVs I was considering:
KDL-70R520A and KDL-70R550A

Anything from sharp you would recommend? Did I miss any other sets?

We've seen some TV sets @Best Buy and my wife is under impression that Samsung has best picture.

Thanks again and your input is greatly appreciated.

Dude seriously!

Agreed, you should go 70" +.

I would purchase a screen based on the available space to fill, not necessarily viewing distance. I'd suggest either one of the 75 inch Samsungs or an 80 inch Sharp:

5K

3.5K

Thx Yoda,
Space to fill is not a problem. There is no limitations on that wall.
Do you think Sharp has better PQ?

I also did not mention: the any TV set over 65" will be wall mounted.

Dude seriously!

The Vizio M801d-A3 is 3500 at Sam's Club and Costco with free shipping. 80 inch, passive 3d. Very good review for the 55 inch M series on CNET.

that's great, I checked the pricing yesterday and it was same. $500 difference between 6300 and 6400 is easier to justify smile.gif.

Do you watch sports on it?

thx so much!

The 6400 is definitely worth it....One major difference between the 6400 and 6300 is that the 6400 has Micro Dimming (edge-lit local dimming). A very valuable feature that will result in better contrast and uniformity.

If you can find a BB that has the Samsung, Sharp and Vizio M-series check them all out, We wnt with the Vizio,it has an amazing picture,240Hz and lots of apps,great 3D,its a huge bang for the buck,while you can't go wrong with any of the 3,

Hi Guys,
I've spent quiet some time today in local BBY. Loaded some HD content on my stick and tried Samsung UN75F6400AF, UN75F6400AF, Sharp LC-70LE857U and Sony KDL-70R550A.

UN75F6400AF and UN75F6300AF are very close in PQ, but "motion" or "action" the UN75F6400AF wins. Sony and Sharp have also very good PQ. It was though decision but the winner was UN75F6400AF. Plus my wife thought also that PQ on UN75F6400AF was better.


Thanks again everybody for your input and help, greatly appreciated. I will be getting the set right after labor day weekend. Going away for 2 weeks.

Does anybody has any good wall mounts to recommend for UN75F6400AF

Dude seriously!

Were the settings the same on the two sets when you were looking at them for motion? I've heard they are both 120 mhz refresh rates. Did either of them have like the super motion flow barf option turned on possibly? I'm debating between these two tv's. It's hard to find a good 75 incher right now.

Yes DangerDave,
the settings were same. One TV was 75", one 65 but I made sure the settings were the same. The " motion" effects were not that noticeable, sometimes the BBY would see them but I would not. So he would rewind and pointed them out to me.

Dude seriously!

Emporio-

Just got the 75' myself, your questions/ answers definitely helped me feel better about my purchase, did you Ever choose a mount? I'm in process of looking for them as well and would certainly appreciate any advice on the matter.
