I am buying am closing on my first house next week and need a new TV to go with it. Viewing distance will be about 10-12 feet depending on final furniture placement. There will be some gaming but 95% will be just normal TV viewing. 3D would be nice but certainly not a requirement.

Here is the kicker, it needs be available for 24 month financing with Amazon. Max budget is $1900 but I would rather not spend that much but will if that's what it takes. I had planned on getting a 73" 640 Mitsu DLP but the seller that had them is sold out and those available are just wanting to much. I am now looking at 60" of the various techs but am really lost on what to get.

Thoughts on Sharp AQUOS LC60LE632U? It seems to tick all the boxes except 3D and at $1450 is decent price. Right now it looks like that and the Panasonic VIERA TC-P60ST30 are the leading candidates. I am concerned about glare with the plasma as the room has a ton of windows. There is a more expensive version of the Sharp at $1900 but is there any difference other than 3D that makes it worth so much more?

Now found another Sharp, the LC60LE830U priced in the middle. Dang my head is starting to spin.

here
(sorry not sure about posting links for buying here)

LG 55LW6500 full LED 3D, smart. $1400 and 12 month financing.

It looked for a few others but most the 3D was either way above your range or not available for financing.

Hope it helps.....If you were willing to do 2k you could get the 65"

The sharp is a good option but no 3D.

Ended up with 55" ST30. Sears of all places had it on sale for a killer deal. It's a touch smaller than I wanted but at 40% less money it made the special financing a moot point.
