Hi All,

Having alot of trouble deciding between 2 sets. I've done alot of research and have narrowed it down to the following:

Sharp 80LE642 ($2899.00) vs. Samsung UN75F6300 ($2500.00 + $300 Gift Card = $2200.00 effectively).

Viewing distance is ~15 feet. Mostly watch reality shows (wife), sports and blu-ray movies. Play the occasional video game (Madden, NBA 2k, COD, GTA, etc). Not a videophile by any means but I don't want something with terrible PQ. Smart Apps mean nothing to me as I use Apple TV.

Seems like the Sharp is full-array vs. edge lit for the Samsung. MOst of the salespeople have told me that Samsung is the better set PQ wise.

Any suggestions? Or anything else at this size that I missed? My budget is $3k.

Looks like that Sharp is a Costco rebranded Sharp 80LE632
The review for it is here:!

Sounds pretty poor.

It's also NOT a full array local dimming set. It's a direct lit, which is just another word for re-arranged Edge Lit

I would think the Samsung would be better quality wise.

At 15 ft away bigger is definitely better, however in this case the Samsung would probably provide a better picture.
