Want direct back lit as we have a 55" side lit LG and it can be pretty poor on the dark scenes with light bleeding into the image from both sides. Make and model doesn't bother me, we use external speakers so TV sound is not important, don't even use smart TV features and I'll be feeding a popcorn hour into it so its media playing capabilities are not important either, just actual picture quality is what we are after. Must be passive 3D as the active 3D makes me ill )I'm one of the unfortunates that see the rainbow effect on a DLP projector)
Price is big factor as I need to be able to justify the upgrade but saying that I'm happy to wait a while until the new models drop in price. My wife is a nurse so we get the emergency services price at most major retailers so that's a big plus.
Had a look at the new curved TV's and it didn't really jump out at me to be honest. Wouldn't dismiss it but it seems a bit gimmicky. So, any suggestions/recommendations please?
