Just torn between the Panny 65ST30 and the Sharp.
No wonder my wife thinks I'm nuts !
I can't believe that I just took out the tape measure at 11:30 at night !!
I too have couch in the room, (garage) also sitting directly across from the TV. However, the back cushions of my couch would messure about 18ft away. The couch also sits a little lower than my recliner. So yes I even tried to measure what the height my eyes are sitting there. lol Anyway it comes in at about 40 inches. I then took the tape over to the TV, where 40 inches comes in at 4 inches up from the bottom of the screen. ( not the bottom of the body of the TV ) There is no feeling of having to look up at all. And no sence of loss of PQ of any kind.
In the end the TV you choose should be the one you like the best. Be it palsma or LED-LCD. You should go and see them both for yourself if posible. It seems that the Sharp is starting to show up in more places now. Just take your time, wait a little while longer to see if you can see one. I can't imagine a bigger hastle than to order a set this size, not like it and have to return it.
