I'm shopping for a 4K TV for my living room, in which I will sit about 10 feet away. I'm really looking to spend under $2,000, and I want to get the best quality TV I can get in the 60-65" size.
I haven't seriously looked at 4K tvs, but ....it seems like Samsung and Sony are the top contenders? The Vizio higher-end series might be alright, but I have never had great impressions of Vizio in the past.
What brands should I be looking at? Are Samsung and Sony still the best?
What specific features are "must haves", for both visual quality and future-compatibility? I want to know what you experts think... not just rely on marketing hype.
Curve, or no Curve? What's the big deal here?
Are there any specific 60" or 65" models that known to be especially great values?

It depends on what you mean by "decent" and what you want/need/expect. Any tv bought today will be outdated in a year to two.
Here's my situation.
I have 2 living rooms, and 1 doesn't have a TV at all.
The only TV I have now is a 52" 1080P LCD 120hz Toshiba Regza now, which was purchased in 2008. I'm sure it's outdated, but the picture quality is still pretty good. It was a high-end TV of the time.
The other room needs a TV!
I only want one room to eventually have a home theater... the formal living room will just be a TV room. Thus, I expect whatever 4k TV I buy now will not be the permanent "theater TV". It will be my main TV now, and it will be moved to the formal living room later.
At that time, I'll buy a more deluxe 4K TV to go with my future audio system, and sell or retire the 52" Toshiba LCD.
