Sharp 60le650u vs. Vizio "E" series vs. Panasonic 60as530u vs. Samsung 60pn5300

So, these 4 tv's are in my price bracket. I'm coming from a Panasonic 50 inch VT20, so I do know what a good tv should look like. I want to upgrade on size due to moving to a larger home with a longer viewing distance. This TV will be in the main living room where a lot of ambient light is present most of the time, so I'm kind of leaning away from the Samsung pn5300. I'm just worried that I won't be happy with the PQ of an LED. Granted I rarely watch TV in complete darkness, I always have a small lamp on. So.... of the tv's listed, what do you guys think would be the best option

So are you looking in the $800 dollar range?

Also, from reading through the forum, it seems that there are some issues with the Vizio "E" series.

I have the PN5300 and love it, but also have a light controlled room. If you are gonna have a lot of ambient light the Sharp offers a matte screen and decent black levels for the price. The Panasonic I feel would offer superior processing to the Sharp and similar contrast since they both employ a variation of the VA panel. In all likelihood they both have a Sharp UV2A panel since Sharp has the market cornered on 60,70,80 and 90" display tech.

According to the CNET review, the Sharp can hit a black level OF. 006,that seems pretty impressive for an edge-lit LED.

Yep, VA panel tech has come a long way with static contrast ratios of 4000:1.
In your case I would still lean toward Panasonic for much better motion processing. Sharp's Aquamotion and interpolation method leaves a bit to be desired. Just my opinion.

I'll have to see if my local Best Buy will let me compare them in the Magnolia Room

Unfortunately they likely won't, since it's not a high dollar tv.
