I paid a lot of money for my Samsung 5 years ago. I've had no problems with it and still love it. However, I have the itch to upgrade to something newer. I have a pending order for the black Friday special Vizio 70" E701i-A3 70. Should I go through with it? Will the picture be better than my 5 year old set?

I'd like to know this too, can't find any review for that set that have contrast numbers or black level measurements.
What model do you think it looks the most from Vizio more popular sets?

That's funny. I got mine in Sept of 08. Hard to believe it's been 5 years.

The LN52A650 was top of the line back in the day. Has technology changed a lot that the E701i-A3 will look better (or at least comparable)?

I'm expecting it to be worse out of the box, and since ours is direct lit vs the edge lit for the vizio, it's hard to say. But I also just bought the Disney WOW calibration disc so I'll report when I get it dialed in.

But from what I saw at my local BB, the 60" E series was very good. I'm just hoping it isn't overwhelming compared to the smaller 52.
