At Costco the samsungs looked much better and the 47LW5600 did not seem to have a good pic quality. The vizios also looked better than the LG. Bestbuy had some concert on the TVs and I couldn't discern which TV was better (again the LW5600's was by itself).
Both at Costco and Bestbuy the reps said Samsung is the best and sony is next.
Can this LG compare to samsung at all (after changing settings or calibration) or am I better off going with Samsung (wife likes it)?
We don't care much for 3D but I will use the 3D (PS3 and computer) if I buy the LG. I am not planning on buying the $150 glasses for the samsung. I can get the Fry's $799 deal, so I am wondering if the price difference makes up for the picture quality.
I can go up to $1500 for the right TV. But I will take the $799 deal if it is really one.
For $799 you can't beat the price for all the features you get with the TV. You get 30 days to decide with Fry's. Save the $800. I did.
Last year my buddy and I argued about quality and price. He bought the Samsung 6100 (55") for $2800. I bought the Vizio 55xvt551svt for $1999. I told him he got screwed. Long story short, he had to buy a sound bar to make it sound better and he had light bleed. His TV was 1.5" thick while mine was 3.5". I could care less for the application I needed.
He told me last week he gave the Samsung to his son and bought the Vizio 553D554 or something. He conceded the argument.
Set a budget, read the reviews, and go out and buy and have fun.
I will say again ... For $799 you can't beat the price for all the features you get with this TV.
