Now I have a new toy, a 60" Sharp LC-80LE847U to play with. I hope this one will give me as long and as satisfactory service as the Samsung.

How much did you sell it for? smile.gif

You can't beat the black level of plasmas on LED so the Samsung was better there. But the black level is getting better on the LED's and the Sharp's is great. Otherwise I love the Sharp's picture quality. It is maybe more sharper and more detailed then the plasma. The plasma was smoother and softer so to speak. I guess which you prefer is subjective but I like them both equally even though they are different. The reason I bought the Sharp is that I recently purchased an Oppo Blu-ray player and Denon AVR that are 3D capable and I wanted a 3D TV to complete my goal of a 3D home theater system. I also wanted a Wi-Fi capable TV with a lot of apps. The reason I went with LED this time is that I do not want to be concerned with IR as I always was with the plasma.

I got $500.00 for the Samsung, my asking price on Craig's List. I got dozen's of emails from people offering me less but I know it was worth my asking price because it looks and works like almost new. The buyers emailed me after getting it home and setting it up and said they were very happy with it.

Thinking of selling mine for the same price and upgrading to a 70" tv. I feel like the image is starting to get a little faded... anyone else?

The picture on mine was like new when I sold it but that was last December. I first went with a 60" Sharp LCD. After 2 weeks I returned the Sharp and purchased a 60" Panasonic plasma. Nothing like plasma.

I am on the way to check out a 58" mint condition for $350. I am know it is 6+ years old, but owners seem to be happy with it. Is the $350 too much?

Seems to be an easy choice. Someone just sold the same tv for $500. My tv is still going strong. No issues since the day I received my tv.

I still love mine and it works great. The picture is as good as the day I bought mine. I recently went out to consider upgrading and could not find a TV I thought I'd be happier with so I gave up. One of my best purchases.

I was able to check out the Samsung today and physically it was flawless, but there was slight wide screen bar retention and a college game clock. I assumed since the display is 6 years old there is no fixing the burn-in/IR?

I have heard yes and no about burn in. I thought there was a program built in to the Samsung that helped get rid of burn in.
