Hey guys i need some help and figured this forum would be able to help me out. My situation is as follows: I've owned a 73" Mitsubishi wd-73732 for fours years. I bought it refurbished and have had two lamps and a light engine fail. I simply hate this TV. I loved the picture and understood then and now that bulbs have to be replaced but the other repair was going to be more than the TV was worth. I also was satisfied with the picture even though i know there are better screens out there. I don't like ghosting and blocky views. I also love gaming and don't watch much regular TV except football. My room is built so that its 12 feet long to the front of my TV and the TV is on top of a fake fireplace that's never been or going to be used. So now i am upgrading and need some help. I'm looking for a 3d big screen around 2k plus or minus. The three i have seen that I'm interested in is a 73" Mitsubishi wd73742, a 65" Vizio 240hz, and a sharp aquos quattron 70". I'm worried the Vizio will look small after so many years with my bigscreen but is a great value. The Mitsubishi would fit my movie room perfectly and is dirt cheap but I'm worried about reliability and the fact that they are being discontinued. And the sharp looks awesome but is the most expensive. I know front projectors are the bang for the buck but they aren't applicable to me at this time. I'm also open to other suggestions preferably if a brick and mortar store has in stock so i can look at it before purchase. I care nothing about smart apps but would love 3d and size for my gaming and occasional movie. I'm also willing to trade some picture quality for more size as long as it is reasonably decent because the bigger you go the less sharp it looks. I also don't have a preference of passive or active 3d. Seen both and both are acceptable for me and my needs. Anyone have any recommendations our tips to help me out?
