Old Pioneer or New Samsung
First, I'd like to thank everyone that contributes to this site. Your input was invaluable for me many years ago when I bought my first Pioneer 5070 for my living room. You all helped me get it setup correctly and then guided me through the "blinking blue light" issues from OTA / TV Guide Setup. My 5070 is still going strong and I couldn't be happier.
I am now looking to get a 2nd set for my bedroom. I want a 70" but it appears I can really only afford 60" right now. The room is fairly dark and places me 16-17' away from the screen (versus 10-11' on the other set). I am trying to decide between buying an old used Pioneer 6070 or a new low-end Samsung PN60F5300AFXZA. The used Pioneer would be somewhat cheaper, but at this price point I would rather spend more if the results are better.
So, finally, my question is what is better for me the Pioneer 6070 or Samsung 5300 given my below priorities?
1) Picture Quality - highest on my priority list, but the 720P has been more than acceptable to me at the distance
2) Remaining life-span of unit - this is a close 2nd place
3) Features - fairly low priority compared to the above two items
I figured this would be quick and easy for some of you.
