    I missed the boat on the zt60 65. At christmas time it was just under $3k but I didn't have the funds. I now DO have the funds but alas the TV is no longer available and has hit ridiculous numbers. Been reading a lot of the threads and it sounds like the Samsung f8500 would be the next best...

     About 3 weeks ago, I bought a 64'' Samsung 8500 TV to replace my 46'' Panasonic G10A. I used to sit 6 feet away from my old TV and I could never tell the difference between DVDs and Blu-rays. Now I sit 10 feet away from my 64'' TV and all standard definition content looks like an old VHS tape...

    Took delivery of new 64 inch F8500 today. Great Best Buy delivery experience. Hellish install experience (my geometry and math was off by 1/2 inch, and my existing wall configuration did not accommodate the TV, so I had to re-mount some very heavy equipment already attached to the wall). It...
