Ive been reading non stop for a week and of course still don't know what to do.
Use- lots of sports(which usually means it will be kind of sunny in the room as most sports are daytime), and a few hours after they get off work each day(6pm-1030pm) watching various things from food network to HGTV, animal planet, news, etc.
I've considered LEDs for energy efficiency and bright room performance but I've always been a plasma guy. The pn51e6500 seems promising as I've read its energy efficiency is great for a plasma and its coating works well in brighter rooms. I've also of course read about ABL which scares me a little. I have a 3-4 year old panny gt20 that if it has ABL I've never noticed it but read its gotten worse with newer models. Would like to hear thoughts or suggestions please! Thanks!
Also how bad is buzzing on the Samsung 6500? I should mention this is for my parents and they are upgrading from a 35" Sony triton CRT and all CRTs buzz/hum slightly.
