Unless you really really need the extra features on the F8500 and are willing to pay a lot more for it, i would choose the $1,300 65" S64 which is a solid set and a great deal. I just don't think...

The S60 actually has really good black levels compared to older models and they're stable too. Probably even better than on the older ST30. The S60 is crisp too. I'd jump on that before it's gone.

There is no excuse for your friend to be throwing your remote control (that he doesn't own), much less destroying your TV that is pretty much irreplaceable because he can't control himself. I would...

Aside from those, your...

If it has the ESPN logo still showing on the green screen after all this time then it's more likely that it is either very persistent IR or maybe even permanent Burn-In, in which case i don't think...

By "regular" i assume you mean a plain fixed mount (not an articulated arm type).

A low-profile mount is simply thinner (and more expensive) and it places the TV closer to the wall than a...

No, that's the supposed corner-to-corner diagonal viewable area of the screen and has nothing to do with the dimensions of the bezel.

The TV makers typically round off their screen sizes to the...

That is the diagonal measurement of the actual screen. The TV's overall dimensions are completely different. Did you look up the specs on these TVs?

Do you know the TV's model number? If it's really a Kuro model, i'd say $600 for any used 60" Kuro is a great deal providing there are no issues with it's screen or operation.
