I'm in the market for a new HDTV and am overwhelmed with choices! I currently have a 50" Samsung 720p plasma TV and the picture quality is pretty good, but I've seen better. I'm planning on getting ATV3 so am wanting a new TV that will take full advantage of the 1080p. My set-up is that the new TV will mount over the fireplace with not a lot of direct sunlight in the room (after all, I DO live in WA). I'll mostly use it to watch football on Sundays and movies at night. Skinny isn't a HUGE deal to me, but lightweight would be good since it is going to mount over the mantle. I'm also trying to keep my price at around $800 (I'm sure there will be better picture qualities for more money, but I'm not interested in paying that much for a TV). What's important to me most is a good picture quality at a good price. No need for a smart TV as I'll be getting ATV3 and no need for 3D. I'm leaning towards a Samsung since all of the appliances in my house are Samsung. Specifically, I'm vacillating between these: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0074FGW5G/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0078LSTRK/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A33ZFW15ZO0RKP Also leaning towards LED for lighter weight and better energy consumption (and better picture?). I'm open to other brands (Sony, Panasonic, Vizio, etc.) if they are what will suit my needs the best. Any input/feedback is appreciate and let me know if I can answer any other questions. Thank you!!!
