Best TV for Mancave??

So I am replacing my Panasonic VT Series Plasma TV in my Mancave. Looking for a 60" or 65" TV with excellent picture quality equal to or better than the Panasonic.
Want to spend less than $2K.
Need recommendations on a great TV to buy.
Vizio
Samsung
LG
etc.

Thanks

You won't really find something that matches or beats your VT in that price range. I would look at the Vizio M series and if you can wait the 2015 Vizio P series. Those should meet your price point and be "close" in most areas to your VT.

Also, If possible dropping down to a 55inch and get the 9300 but that is curved, so may look smaller

Im only upgrading from a 51 inch plasma so 55 wouldn't be too bad, but i can wait, not sure if thats an option for you, but nothing in that size and that price point will match your current picture quality.

I'm moving it to my family room and want to get a comparable larger screen TV for Man Cave.


The OLED's are a little to expensive at this point so I want to get a good 4K TV.


Any thoughts?

You probably won't see the difference between 1080 and 4k on a 55" TV at watching distance. And there's very little 4k content for watching anyway. If your eyes are like mine, you'll hate anything other than your VT. I'd rather watch a $400 720p plasma than a $4000 4k, LED, curved screen, 3D, Smart TV, 240hz, full array dimming, blah blah blah...

I guess you could call my garage my man cave. We sit out there a lot. I have the cheapest Panasonic 42" I could find at the time. It's 1080p, not LED back lit, 60hz, and for just having something on in the background while we hang out, it's fine. I had it in the bedroom for a while and couldn't stand it, replaced it with a cheap Samsung plasma from Costco before they all dried up and couldn't be happier. Unfortunately, you don't have that option anymore.
