Hi all, I am not a TV junkie but I do LOVE my Tivo and Apple TV. I have 3 Panasonic 50" Plasma's in my house and a 42" Samsung in my home office. For some reason recently I've gotten the bug for a 70-75" TV and I am having a hard time justifying it. (my brother got a 110" projector and it is nice but I am not a fan of projectors myself)
I have a 50" Panasonic Plasma HDTV, it was $500 3-4 years ago & there is nothing wrong with it.
I have a Klipsch sound bar below it and I am VERY impressed with the quality of the soundbar & wireless sub. The picture quality on my TV is "ok" so really I would be upgrading to a better Processor from 120 to 240+ & then 20-25" which is 50% more screen size than I have now.
There's something uneasy about my sound bar costing more than my TV now.
Not many of the Smart TV features are jumping out at me because my Tivo and Apple TV have Netflix and other programs I often use, are there any advantages to the Smart TV I am overlooking?
I like the Split Screen some of the Samsung models support Web browsing & TV/ Netflix, I thought that was pretty cool. (but I often browse the web on an iPad)
The 3 models I liked were below:
- Samsung 75" UN75F6300 $2,999
- Sharp 70" LC70LE857U $2,999
- Sharp 70" LC70LE750u
So besides the size, 20-25 extra inches going from a 50" tv, is there anything else to consider? I'd have NO other use for my current 50" Plasma so I would put it on Craigslist & hope to sell it for $100 or so... anything else to consider?
