Uses: Nearly all movies. Netflix, Streaming rips(backups) from HTPC, BLU-Ray, DVD's and Fios HD TV movie channels.
The wife and I will be sitting on our couch approx. 12 feet from the screen. There are 3 windows to our left and 3 windows behind us.
We are still very interested in the Samsung PN64F8500, but after measuring it and putting the dimensions on the wall with blue painters tape it now seems a little too small despite it's awesome PQ.
We only care about PQ and motion, not so much about smart features or apps.
I have searched the threads and haven't come across any in my budget range or they have had a lower budget.
Anyone have any recommendations for tv's larger than 65" that have great excellent PQ?
Depends on just how much picture quality sacrifice we are talking here
The Sony XBR85X950B 85-Inch 4K is a little over your intended budget at $24,998.00
it does however qualify for free shipping at Amazon . They have a 65" XBR for $7,998.00.
Comparing picture quality to the f8500 Sammy there are Mostly middling LG, Sharp and Visio options in a 70" LCD within your budget.
*Some of these sets may be OK on their own * but they will not be in the f8500 or Sony 9x picture quality by a longshot
The pick of the litter in that space might be the Sony Model: KDL70W850B other than that I would look to the LG or Sharp and probably not even think about the Viseo.
*If you are talking picture quality close to that of the Sammy f8500 in an LCD in a large size *
or an LCD at all you might want to review your budget with the missus and add quite a few large
OTOH if you are adept at printing money there are more expensive options even well beyond the ones given here .
If you have a fresh batch (suitcase full of bills ) ready soon the new 79" LG OLED should be out soon. ☺
Perhaps a modest large screen Front projection set up within your budget ?.
TBH I don't know much about these or what quality /brightness you could expect without a suitcase full of money
they seem to run the gamut like the TV's and then some.
