Help me decide between these two:
Budget = $1500-$2000
Seating Distance = 12ft
Size limitations = no bigger than 60" due to wall its being placed on
Uses and Sources = Movies and TV, Blu Ray player, DirecTV
Room Lighting = Large wall with windows opposite TV
Please help as I need to "pull the trigger" this week
Sammy is on sale for $1799 right now.
Out of the two, I would go for the Sharp. Samsung is ok but they are both edge lit and will most likely have it's LCD problems. The Sharp is a 2014 model which has some nice improvements over last years. Having not seen one in person yet, I heard it has a very nice up scaler built in. Check the Sharp 2014 thread, I believe there are some owners with more detailed info. View them yourself and decide for yourself.
