looking for a 55" or + LED

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So i was having issues with my panasonic gt50 plasma tv, so panasonic is sending me a check so I can purchase a replacement tv.

Heres some of the choices ive found,

Samsung UN55F7100 55-Inch or Samsung UN60F7100 60-Inch
Samsung UN55F7500 55-Inch
Sharp LC-70LE650 70-inch (may be too big for my bed room?)

most current tv was 55", not sure if the change from 55"-60" is worth the several hundred extra it costs?

I have a surround sound system so i wont be using the TV's speakers. TV will be used for
watch cable tv
watching movies / shows on my xtreamer box
gaming on my ps3 and future xbox one & ps4.

The 70" sharp is awesome for living rooms with couches 16'+ away. Some living rooms that put their couch on the opposite side wall instead of in the middle of the room do have viewing distances that far, but doubtful that a bedroom does.

Also, since this is OCN, chances are you will likely use your TV as a computer monitor of some sort at some point, so I'd lean towards smaller for higher pixel density or it will start to look blocky. You need to spend some time with a tape measure and online calculator to help you figure out what is the best size, but it's probably 47-55".

This Vizio 50" looks pretty good. $300 more for the same thing in 55"

I'd get that and put the extra money into an awesome HTPC or network upgrades or wireless HDMI setup
