65ST60 Lowest price found $2199.99
64E7000 Lowest Price found $1799.99
At $600 difference would the E7000 be worth of buy ? Just trying to determine at what price would I seriously consider E7000 over ST60
Damn, $1599 for a shipped 64E7000 is a great deal! 2 things though. Is it new in box and it it returnable withou paying a restock fee or return shipping. These can ruin a great deal!
I know I have gone back and forth with you on this since I personally owned both TV's in the 60" version. So here goes. If the e7000 is returnable with free return shipping then I would get and try it out. I do not know your financial situation but for me that is a huge price difference to be saving.
Does the ST60 have a better picture, yeah it does. Would I say hugely different, no. The e7000 has more of a cinema look to the picture while I feel like the ST60 has more of a digital, maybe LED quality. The blacks are obviously better on the ST60. If you look through the ST60 thread I had posted some picture on 1 of the last pages of some black screen shots.
Physically looking at both TV's, the Samsung just looks a lot more premium but that really shouldn't matter much in the decision of a TV.
The ST60 is new, it is creating a lot of buzz. It is affordable by many. If the 60" was selling for over $2000 I am sure the excitement would not be so high. At $1400-$1500 for this in a 60" makes it affordable to many with an amazing pq. the Samsung is a year old and talk has faded on it. When new TV's come out next year the ST60 will just be a memory from the past as well.
Another way to look at it and I am just forming an opinion on how someone might feel. If you go with the e7000 you will keep questioning yourself if you should have bought the ST60. The more people post they bought the TV and how great it is the more and more you might regret your decision.
If you go and purchase the ST60, I do not think you will question your decision because everyone is talking about the ST60 and you would not even have time to think about the e7000.
Again, major factor here is money. If you will be in debt for the extra $600 and really cannot afford it then I can only say be wise with your money. If money is no problem, get the ST60 and be done with torturing yourself. But I will say the $1599 for the 64e7000 is a sweet deal. But either way you are getting a 65" TV so it is not like you are getting something bigger at a less price. If we were comparing the 64e7000 at $1599 to a 60" ST around the same price, I would go for the size.
I think I have exhausted all my thoughts on this but if you can think of any other questions I will be glad to
answer them. So final decision today is buy the ST60 if money is no issue. Tomorrow I might have another opionion so please make your decision soon! I changed my mind like 3x just in the time I wrote this post!
Sorry for any mistypes, don't have time to re-read.
