Basically, My old 55" Sony died and it's time for me to get a new TV. 3D isn't a huge deal but I figure I should get a 3D one anyway. I don't have anywhere near where I live to actually compare TV's, but I'm interested in the Samsung UN55C7000 and the UN55C8000. IMO, the last time few times I was to a Futureshop/Bestbuy etc. I thought the Samsung had the best picture, then LG, Then Sony. I'd be interested in people's oppinions who've actually seen these TV's. I'm not necessarily opposed against other brands and the price difference between the C7000 and C8000 isn't necessarily discouraging.
