Thanks for the post. I've been leaning that way (toward the 55 inch Sony 900A, which is at $1999 now) but a part of me is drawn to the Sammy 7500 (which is $1,599 in the 55 inch and $1,899 in the 60 inch). The room (living room) could probably handle the 60 but it would only leave about 4 inches on either side on the console. Plus my gut says the Sony must have some better insides at +$400 over that Sammy. The Best Buy guys say the spec out the same, but it sounds like Sony has some color processing that Sammy's don't yet.
The only knocks on the Sony I've found in lots and lots of reading is their Smart platform. But I don't think I care since I'm running AppleTV and will be adding a Roku and a BluRay as soon as the new console gets here. Main box is a Dish DVR now, but upgrading to Dish Hopper soon as well.
Thanks again for the reply. If anyone else out there has any real world in home experience on any of them I'd love to hear! I'll definitely post back once I get the room re-equpped!
