Since I have not seen either of these models in person I'm just going by what others have said about either of these sets and make a final decision on one unit.
For what it's worth, I tend to watch from between 8' to 12' away from the TV, depending on whether I'm sitting near at the coffee table (when playing on the ps3 or xbox360, for instance) or standing behind my couch (when someone else is watching the tv and I'm biding my time, for instance). I've also watched the tv while walking around the room, mainly when my son's hogging the tv watching his Disney shows. Cel-shaded shows tend to be less forgiving in that you can easily see any color changes or drop-off on a fairly uniformly colored object. I did not notice any. I'm probably just not as picky as some, because I notice no problems at all once I'm watching content and enjoying whatever show I'm watching. I've been off center by as much as being practically parallel to the tv itself (our adjoining breakfast area is next to the tv), and while I wouldn't recommend watching it that way (you're looking at a 3 inch wide screen, basically) I didn't notice any dramatic drop in brightness and definitely no color-flipping like old LCD monitors used to do.Edited by bhchan - 6/20/12 at 4:05pm
