This is my first post here, so I appreciate the help. I am looking for a new TV for my large open living room. I am on what I would consider a medium budget of about $1,500 to an absolute max budget of $2,000. I am looking for a 65" because of the size of the room. I currently have a approximately 5 year old 46" JVC LCD display that I am actually very happy with, but it is just way to small for the large room.
I did a bunch of research on TV's did some reading, asked guys at Video Only, and at Best Buy and now I am just not sure what the heck to do. I looked at the Samsung 65" 7100 which I could get for $1,999, but then read a bunch of reviews on the 65" 6300 which was $400 less, but when I saw it in person it was just not a great picture. Washed out and poor contrast. Then I started considering Plasma, but I have been told unless I want to spend $3,000 on a plasma that I would get a better picture from LED now.
I would like to have something before the Super Bowl if possible, but I don't want to rush to a decision either. I would appreciate any help in a direction to go and am very open to any specific models. Again a $1,500 to max of $2,000 budget and 65" display. I would consider going down to 60" if it was a significantly better display for the cost. Thanks again for your help.
I apologize if I am not in the right place. Please move accordingly if I am not.
