Trying to narrow down from our final three displays, two of which are LED's. Looking for opinions on which of these two and why. 12.5'-13' viewing distance. Sunroom with 90% window coverage of walls. Day and night viewing. Color accuracy, motion for sports and contrast matter most.

Between the two Samsungs, both have glossy reflective screens, but both have a better picture quality than the Sharp.


The Samsung LCD can get brighter than the Samsung Plasma at day, but at night you will have to lower the brightness way lower than what the plasma is capable of to get a comparable black level. The contrast will also suffer as a result.

I had the Sharp 70le857u in house for 10 days. I now have the 65f8000. No contest. The extreme bright room performance is similar. The weakness of each as I see it? The Sharp just can't get bright enough while keeping an accurate picture even though the screen itself is better than the Samsung's glossy screen. The Samsung, while having a less ideal panel, can get so darn bright with keeping an accurate picture. This is the first lcd I've liked as much as my Panny plasma, but this is better for this room. Oh, and $3k is a con for both.
