I posted this last week in the "help me decide" thread but it seems as though there isn't much help there anymore. I need help deciding because I need to buy this week:

Help me decide between these two:

Samsung UN60F7100

Sharp LC-60TQ15U

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.

Media room- LG OLED EG9600 4k, Pioneer Elite VSX-90, PS4, Klipsch Gallery G28's, Klipsch Sub 12, Klipsch RS-52 II, Optik HD cable

Living room- Panasonic ST60, onkyo RC-360,HTPC, Klipsch Reference R-62II, Rc52II

Gaming room -Panasonic GT50 THX, PS3, Wii

I would go with the Samsung because it is a VA panel. All around solid TV.

Sharp usually only uses IPS panels, which have half the picture quality of VA panels.
