I realize that this subject has been discussed to death with no real consensus on the answer, but I have to ask it again.
Judy and I are still in the ‘analog’ age when it comes to TV. We paid a lot of money for a big screen TV and a very well engineered home theater system 12 years ago but by today’s standards that is ancient technology.
So it’s time to move on. The TV will be given to a nephew and the 10’w X 7’h bookcase that houses it all will be sold to the highest bidder.
We have listened to every story from every salesman about which is the best HD TV for us to buy. The story changes every week and every new salesman.
We are old and our eyesight is getting worse, so we know we need a very large screen (a 65” would be enough to hold us for a few years). The home theater system we now have (probably runs about $5,000 today) is mostly unused so that isn’t an important criteria. I can easily purchase a new Denon receiver, attach it to the existing speakers and it would be in the 21st century. Since the cables are already in place we could still have our home theater sound when we want it.
So, we’re now aware that we have to purchase a new piece of furniture (or build one) along with the TV. Here are some of the other questions we face:
1. Is being connected to the Internet worth the additional cost?
2. Is 3-D worth anything if I can’t see in three dimensions?
3. Is Samsung REALLY any better than Sony or LG or Panasonic or Visio or other TV’s?
4. Is Plasma better than LED or LCD?
5.0 Is Mitsubishi’s new Laser technology a better deal?
6. Other questions still forming in my confused head……
Thanks in advance for any helpful information.
