I have a 61 Samsung DLP that has decided to dot itself to death, While it served me well for a little less than five years I am a bit disappointed with the end. So talking to various shops around town, a guy at Best Buy; yeah that place; suggested Plasma. The majority of the viewing is movies and series on Blu-Ray. The room has four windows but blinds can keep direct light off of any screen. I do not game with my TV. Seating distance is 9+ feet.
i found a S64 65 inch at Costco to be a good deal, just have to determine if its the right direction. I had looked at the Samsung 5300 that BB had and their another one they had. I am only budgeting around 1500/1600 this time, really don't spend THAT much time in front of the screen but do want a good movie presentation.
