I would be crazy to switch out a 65VT60 far a Samsung 75F6300 right? I so want to go bigger but not sure if size is worth it over PQ. Just throwing the idea out there in my head right now.
I sit about 14ft. from my TV and wondering if I would benefit more from size then PQ. I swear this site has ruined me with large size TV's and the want to keep going bigger. I thought originally going with a 55" inch TV that would be considered large but now a 65" TV to me is small. Lol
Eric buddy! You been drinkin my Christmas glog? Friends don't let friends trade in their VTs, and you are on my short list of best friends on this thread. Here's Sargy's take on this: When it comes to LED, (and I have owned MANY) of them, 55 inch is the clearest. 60 inch isn't as clear but it is well worth the trade off because it is more immersive than a 55. I also find the 55 to be a bit too sharp. 65 inch LED tvs are a real trade off. You get that theatrical size, but because of the pixel spread, (they don't add extra pixels to the bigger sets), it really starts looking not as clear or rich and has a "cheap" look. Imagine what your 75 inch will look like!
Also, when you go past 55 inch with LED, you really start getting not just flashlighting, you get the dreaded patchy random clouding in dark scenes. It made the 8 flagship Samsungs I had and returned unwatchable. D series had this, the ES was worse, and people on Amazon are reporting that the F series has the same problems. It took a few years, models, and vendors for me to finally realize that Samsung is perfectly willing to sell tvs in this condition. Each one they sent me, had cloudy patches in different areas. Same problem; different places. This wasn't about being a plasma snob. I would have kept the FIRST tv if it had grey blacks, but not foggy patches smack dab in the center of the my screen. It literally blocked my field of view. "The gobblins always came out at night!". It must have to do with manufacturing difficulties with tvs this large and thin with edge lit technology. This is THE sole reason I started buying plasma tvs.
What I noticed with this 65 inch plasma, is that 1. it has no clouding or flashlighting, and 2. It is as freakin clear as a 55 inch led. Clearer in fact! Something to do with plasma tech. I guess. This just plain amazes me every time I watch my tv.
You know I hate 4k for it's lack of film-like look and completely unnecessary hyper clarity for movies. BUT, imagine having a 75-90 inch tv someday that, because of it's size, will be reduced in UHD clarity to only HD due to 4k pixel spread. I could live with that! You can also sit a lot closer to them and they stay clear looking for that cinema experience.
So, until then, keep your plasma and stay out of Sargy's glog.
If you go for it though, I've got your back my friend. I just want you to know what your getting into with larger LED tvs in general and Samsung in particular. Read the negative Amazon posts about that tv and similar ones that have sold more before you proceed.
