So after a year of my wife nagging me about getting a new primary TV, I am finally ready to buy one.
My initial thought was to get the 2013 650 version, which looks like it will MSRP at around $4000, when it hits the store. Pluses seemed to be it's 2013 version, so it must be better, right? Better computer, better looks, supposed brighter panel, etc. However, it is definitely edge lit. Unfortunately, since they are not out yet, it is hard to know if they are going to have image issues or not.
Some searching resulted in now having a 844 lined up for $3899, no tax, free ship. I've read this entire thread, and though a good TV, it does seem to have a high number of image problems of it's own. I probably need to pull the trigger on this set by tomorrow. They are selling out quickly, everywhere.
Is there any good reason not to buy the 844, and wait for the 2013 650 version? Yes, I do know the 844 is a higher ended set, and is not the 650's direct replacement.
Thanks for the any help, and/or wisdom.
