You are correct on the differences of the two models. I got my 65PS64 at Costco and have thoroughly enjoyed it. The extended warranty program at Costco is better, but I don't know about availability. From what I've read, if you can find it at either place, buy it. The fleshtones and black levels weren't totally to my liking off the bat. I found these settings online from another forum where they used a ColorMunki; and other than bumping the brightness from 0 to 11 these settings look beautiful on this set. Afterwards I used the Monsters Inc.DVD THX Video Calibration to set my brightness and found 11 to be best. Another tip; although your receiver and this TV do have ARC (audio return channel) via HDMI, it is only two channel audio. If you want 5.1 audio from the internal ATSC tuner from your local over the air stations or 5.1 audio on streaming movies from Netflix, etc., you'll need to run an optical cord from the TV to your receiver. My 3313 has a TV Audio input just for this although you can assign any empty slot for this. The YouTube function is also fun to enjoy music videos, etc., although youtube does block any video that is blocked from a mobile device, so that means several. Also, the TV will only see 25 playlists that you create on your computer, so be sure to limit yourself to that number. Another thing I've done to my set is purchase a set of 6500K LED lights and used blue tape to put them on the back of my TV for backlighting which greatly reduces eyestrain which I've had on all TVs. http://inspiredled.com/products/kits/universal-LED-TV-backighting-kit If your TV is on its stand on a table you'll only need the "large" set as you'll only run a single horizontal strip across the vertical center on the back of the TV. The kit comes with a switch which is manual and a hassle. A bummer though, most receiver manufacturers have removed the switched AC outlets on the back (yours included) as I guess folks were plugging in high current devices. I'm using a 12 volt trigger on my receiver and replaced the switch on a power strip with a 12 volt relay for the receiver to turn the backlight on and off. I see yours' doesn't have 12 volt triggers, so I would use one of those "smart strips" to plug your TV into, and plug the lights into the remote outlet, and this should work to "automate" the backlighting if you go that route. Hopefully I've provided you with a little more info. If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask. Good luck!
