We have a Panasonic TC-P65S1 plasma. Any future replacement must exceed this 65 inch Panasonic in size. So far this TV has been excellent, especially with blu ray. Cable video (AT&T Uverse) is a step down in video quality from blu ray. But even with 4:3 movies on DVD from the 1940s we enjoy very good video quality.

I got a 2010 LG 47" LED TV Back before they started calling televisions with apps built in Smart TVs. I personally like the quality and clarity of my picture. I will one day likely upgrade to a larger screen and a projector screen combo for my home theater.Until my finances get more stable and I am no longer renting I will likely just continue with  building on my current setup by adding more network hard drives and straightening out all my media to digital format and stored on my network.

My display in my theater room is a Ben-Q W7000 3D DLP front projector. Screen is an Elite 125" diagonal 16x9 motorized AT screen with the 1080p2 woven material with a stage for LCRs behind and fabric all around the screen. It is my main display but I also have a Pioneer Kuro PDP-5020 plasma in my living room that is one of the most favorite displays that I've ever had.

Can't bring myself to get rid of my 73" Mitsubishi rear projection CRT. Running through a Lumagen Vision HDQ it still looks fantastic.

Toshiba REGZA 46SV670U

46 Inch regular, plain old LCD that I've bought back in 2010.

Will upgrade eventually but I'll wait another year or two for some more tech/price changes.

That's like going from a Motorola Startac flip phone to an iPhone 5s!! I can imagine the difference was huge.

yeah.. It took me some time to get used to 1) the huge size difference -- 55 vs 75 and 2) the foot print of the TV. The Mitsubishi was a beast. Huge TV while the Samsung is LED and is slim and hangs on the wall. But, now I am good with the 75 inch.

My main ht display is a Samsung UD55F9000 55" UHD TV that I have had for a little over a year now. It replaced my Sony Wega HDTV that was native 720p and rear projection as well. It was down to a Sony and a Samsung and I went with the Samsung in the end. As far as sound quality goes I really don't know how well the tv works for sound because I never listen to the tv speakers.

Supporter of 1080p & 4K/UHD video (173 480p DVD Titles, 325 1080p Blu-ray Titles - 44 UHD 4K Blu-ray Titles - 75 HD-DVD's & Vudu 57)/ Supporter of Lossless PCM, Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio. Samsung UHD 4K Blu-ray Player UBD-K8500
