Why not buy a set with a better panel in that price

Looking for a 55" or 60", around $800-1350 (or so), neither 4K nor 3D are at all needed. Just looking for a good HDTV with a great picture - with local dimming and a LOT of zones.
range that does not need a few local dimming zones
to be H A***d competitive with a better panel ? eg: Sony 55 W800B $ 1298.00 At B&H photo
(Best buy or Amazon should price match)
s**t for that money Visio wouldn't be on my mind maybe Sony ,Toshiba ,Samsung ,LG,LED or more likely a Sammie Plasma .
If you really want the SRSLY best picture quality under ~ $2500.00 for half of that or less
a 60f5300 or 64f5300 Samsung plasma ( if you can still find any ) I have the 60f5300 and A Sony and LG LED also ,Sammy PDP is plenty bright in an average room just not facing direct sunlight, better P.Q. than anything short of a Sony 9XX LCD or Sammie f8500 .
Certainly better than any Visio on the market today, best picture quality in the house here.
SRSLY Sammie PDP will make you throw rocks at a lot of LCD ! So if you want to show your vidiophile around here and have your friends and neighbors with LCD envious of your picture get with a Sammy plasma while you still can dawg
Next best and real decent LED
in the price range and vidiophile hierarchy would be the Sony 8x or maybe an LG 55LB7200 or Samsung UN55H7150 . I would look at all of these no problem I have an Sony and LG led also pretty darn good. like fafrd
says nothing wrong with a Toshiba 55L7400U it may not run with the others though but it'a value proposition and probably decent .☺
(lots of Zones maybe 2-300 or more ) with a real good panel is a whole different and very expensive thing than what Vizio is offering so far besides local led dimming cannot adjust as fast as or precise as the panel at pixel level anyway .
