Hi, I am new here, so much great info in this forum.
I got a steal on a P55GT50 ($1000), it was a display at BestBuy. Absolutely stole it. I brought it home and it would not turn on. Bad power supply. So options were to get it fixed 2-3 weeks. My wife would kill me if I bought a TV that had to get fixed right away so sadly I returned it. Even worse they didnt have anymore nor any other BestBuy in the area.
So My replacement options:
Samsung 55" ES7100 $1200
Panasonic 55" ST50 $1100 or less
Sony 55" HX750 $1200
Sony 55" NX720 $900
LG 55LM6700 $1100
I think I can still get a GT50 online for $1250 but I prefer to buy locally
They offered the VT50 for $1380 but $1200 is my max
I am not really excited about any of these options. The TV is going in a family room with lots of daylight, it will get lots of use, lots of network TV, Sports and Movies
I am looking from input from those who know these models and can weight picture quality vs value. I really dont care about 3D, Smart TV is cool but there are other ways to get streaming
Right now I am getting the ES7100 but again, meh, I am seriously considering the NX720 for $900 but is is already 2 model years old an d probably not returnable and I havent seen it in action
Thanks for the replies
