Coming from DLP, will I be happy with a Plasma set?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have a 61 Samsung DLP that has decided to dot itself to death, While it served me well for a little less than five years I am a bit disappointed with the end. So talking to various shops around town, a guy at Best Buy; yeah that place; suggested Plasma. The majority of the viewing is movies and series on Blu-Ray. The room has four windows but blinds can keep direct light off of any screen. I do not game with my TV. Seating distance is 9+ feet.

i found a S64 65 inch at Costco to be a good deal, just have to determine if its the right direction. I had looked at the Samsung 5300 that BB had and their another one they had. I am only budgeting around 1500/1600 this time, really don't spend THAT much time in front of the screen but do want a good movie presentation.

The S64 will smoke any Samsung DLP. I have two family members with 2007 Samsung DLPs - a 56" and 61" and even my previous ST30 was far better.

No comparison Plasma is so far superior to DLP in every way I am sure you will be blown away :-)

It's like upgrading from a '74 Pinto to a brand new Maserati. But with a $1,500 budget and 9 ft viewing distance, I would look at the 60ST60. Especially since you're only doing movies and shows on blu-ray.

I had a Samsung 61" color wheel type dlp traded up for a 67" led engine type, which was way better than the 61". Just purchase a 65ZT60 WOW so very clear and crisp no comparison. Move forward you will not regret it. I would get the 60ST60 or the 65ST60 for a little more money,very highly rated!
