The goal for the front three speakers is a unified "front sound stage" created together by the LCR speakers, so the more similar they are the better. Considering this you want to stick with the...

The Q600c has the same UniQ driver as the Q300 so it would be a better match than the Q200c.

Generally speaking however three identical speakers LCR across the front is the "ideal" so a third Q300...

Because of the wide viewing angles needed, you might also consider a used 65" plasma.

Unfortunately off-axis viewing is a weak spot in most TVs from 2014/2015.

I'll check but I believe the local dimming is turned off on the 7100's we use at work. For normal TV watching or PC game play I'm sure the local dimming is fine, but for our work (vfx, titles, etc.)...

I've spent some time with two UN40JU7100's (at work) and they look very good. But they are UHD and pricey - $1100 on amazon.

Potential good news for you is that the 40" versions of the J6300...

Again the same experience, with both the LG and Vizio. Poor off-axis viewing is just part of the deal with almost all the LED/LCD tv's this year, no matter what the...

Several reviews say the 6500 doesn't have native 24p playback - a potential issue for watching blu-rays.

I have a couple of Panny plasmas (GT50 and VT60). When they die I'll probably go with a projector unless there are a significant improvements with LED/OLED tech.

FWIW ... The Vizio 24" and the LG 22" are, for all practical purposes, even. Each has strengths and weakness so it's a trade off.

Both have surprisingly good pictures in terms of color accuracy,...

The BR authoring apps I've used will let you do it as a separate title/track. In which case the 60i section would need to be uniquely selected from a menu.

The consensus seems to be get i1Display Pro over the ColorMunki, Spectracal or Spyder.

The i1Basic Pro 2 ($1250) is quite a bit more expensive than the i1Display Pro ($240) - is it worth it?

The Vizio E24-C1 is edge lit, not full array. (Razor LED is Vizio speak for edge lit.)

The E32-C1 is the smallest 1080p Vizio unit with full array, though it's worth noting that in all the...

Two smaller than 32" 1080p TVs are the Vizio E24-C1 and the LG 22LF4520. Both have surprisingly decent picture quality.

Two of the best 32" 1080p TV's are probably the Vizio E32-C1 and the...

LG 22LF4520 is another small, 1080p option. It can be ordered online or purchased at Sears. Everything else I've seen is off-brands.

The UN60HU8550 has a high input-lag time and wouldn't be a good TV for gaming.

I would lean towards the JU7100 over the Vizio. Among other things the JU7100 will read/display 4:4:4 color because...

FWIW ... I've read several articles/reviews that say the JU6500 has horrible 24p playback - a big deal for movie/blu-ray viewing.

Maybe look at the Samsung UN40JU7100. There is also a 50" model but as close as you're sitting 40" seems ok.

The TV does both 1080p and 4k at 60hz/4:4:4 and the 24p playback for movies/blu-ray is...

Perhaps just a bit worse than the Vizio (they are both 60hz panels) but other than sports probably not that noticeable.

I'm the first to admit the dirty-screen effect I've seen on the 9500 could just be luck-of-the-draw on the units I've seen.

I actually think the JS8500 picture looks a little better than JS9500 - I noticed more "dirty-screen" effect on the JS9500 while the JS8500 looked uncommonly clean/even. Also, the...

The Sharp LC-32LE653U for $277 at amazon is a bit over budget but has a surprisingly good picture, to my eyes definitely better than the Vizio. Amazon also lists used units at a lower price.
