I am looking for a 60 inch or larger TV (may settle for 55 if I have to).
Guessing I need to avoid Plasma because it is going to be in a room with a lot of sunlight (a sunroom)
I imagine 120 HZ is good enough (is 240 worth it?)
I love a good deal and will consider anything, but I the closer to or over 2000, the more I am turned off. (is that being reasonable?)
So any advice or word on good deals? should I wait until the super bowl week? Best Buy has that commercial with the sharp big sharp TV's (60 and 70 inch) on sale. Anyone know much about those?
pittsoccer33 wrote:the 80 inch tvs are the LE632 model. just for reference, the 60" sells for around $1400 and most of the stores have the 70" for $2000 this week.
its a nice enough tv especially for the price/size, but its probably closer to a 5 or 6 out of 10 on the over all picture quality scale.

Plasma colors are warmer than LED - think of it like comparing a soft table lamp and an office fluorescent light. The plasma colors tend to be more accurate whereas LEDs oversaturate. The LEDs jump at your so much more on a show floor than plasma because of the store's lighting. Best Buy's Magnolia rooms are the best place to try looking at a tv, but they only usually have their most expensive setups in there.

LG makes a few tv's every year that no stores want to sell, so they don't really go into production. They had a 75" tv last year, but it was something like $14,000.
