I just bought the 65swx last week for the same reasons as stated, it splits and needs to get up the stairs. I would have gotten the 57" but heard too many potential problems with the stairs so had to go up in size. Hope the darn thing isn't going to be too big. I'll be 12-13' away. Unfortunately, I won't get it delivered till Feb. when the house is complete.
You'll love the 65" set! I went the same route due to the split cabinet and thought it might overpower my room - it doesn't. I sit 12' away and it's a very good size screen for that distance. You'll be glad you went bigger!! Enjoy!
