Thanks for the reply.
I'm sure the ones you mentioned would be a true upgrade. At present, the choices are either keep the 8550 or go with the 60R. I will probably upgrade to a FALD set next fall (have an expensive move coming up).
I can get the 60R for such a good deal, that with the demand for the Evolution Kits on Ebay, I'll basically be getting the 60R for free. I do a lot of gaming, and the 60R gets great marks in that area.
I am using the 8550 on base settings (don't like to futz around—maybe OCD), so I must just like a really bright image. That's why FALD is my endgame.
But for now, is the 60R at least a little bit of an upgrade for gaming and HDR content? Also, I'm over 3D, so that's not an issue. Burned out and no new movies coming out did me in for good I think. Again, thanks!!! You are exactly who I need to hear from.
I guess the biggest concern is will I miss the local dimming? Like will the blacks on the 60R seem washed out and gray after the 8550?
