So me and my wife are looking for a new tv. Currently I have a lcd sony bravia 52XBR6 tv that has a nice vertical line going down the side. Sony came out of course and said have a nice day, the lcd panel has to be replaced. So I need a tv at some point and I am doing some research and have read alot of forum information about plasmas vs LED tv's. I do see that there are lot's of people saying not to get any samsung LED tv's and I am wondering why? I like the Samsung UN65D8000 or the new UN60ES8000 they came out with but saw some bad reviews on there as far as 3d tv and picture quality. So now I am stuck between plasma and LED based on everyone's reviews so I am posting this help request because I am confused on what to get. The room I will watch it in has about 6 windows, lot's of lighting however I am putting in faux wood blinds that will have the routeless option to block all the light I can without putting blackout curtains up. So that being said, I am attaching the room size. The TV will be on the wall that divides the library from the living room. The tv will be about 9.5 feet away from my couch. So the questions I am looking for help on this are:
1. Size of tv, is 65 too big?
2. Type of TV LED/Plasma? Which is my best bet for watching movies/playing lot's of PS3 games
3. I like no flaw's in the picture and no studdering or any blur's so I want the best quality possible.
4. I hate dark pictures, I always liked the brigness of samsungs LCD/LED tv's so not sure where to go Samsung 65D8000 or PN64D8000 plasma.
Any help is greatly appreciated as I am about to dump ton's of money in on this and don't want another bad tv or bad quality. Also the only thing that bothers me with plasma is the burn in problem and the degradation of quality of time that's the only thing that scares me on those so any help here is greatly appreciated.
