70 Inch TV for large living room
I just moved into a new home with a cut-out in the wall 66 inches across (thus it seems a 70 inch TV is the maximum I can fit). The living room is fairly large and open to the kitchen. Unfortunately as I've found options for 70 inch screens is limited, but I couldn't find a 75 inch that would fit both the cut out and our price range (a curved screen would probably fit, barely, but too pricey for me).
It's not a theater room by any means, and a significant portion of the time someone in the kitchen would want to watch TV at an angle, so the viewing angle is more important than perfectly dark blacks etc.
Am I right to conclude that the LG 70UJ6570 ($1299 at BestBuy) would probably be a better bet than say a Vizio M70-E3 ($1599 at Costco) or Sony KD70X690E ($1498 at Amazon), primary due to the IPS screen providing better viewing angles? Are there any options I'm missing in that price range (say $2k or less)? Unfortunately, reviews on the LG screen are somewhat limited.
