I was in your position as well - looking at the 61/65/71/650 models. I came to the conclusion there are way too many issues with those models (plus older technology) and haven't heard any issue at all with the 550 series - yet.
There's always going to be something new and improved in the upcoming years, but let's face it, the technology is still being tweaked and we the consumers are guinea pigs to identify the issues.
On a side note - I have 3 large windows 5 feet away from the tv and there was some glare with the tv off initially, but once the tv was on and lit up - i could barely notice it - in plain daylight. Awesome.
