Looking for a 60" TV doesnt have to be UHD or even a smart tv as its hooked to an HTPC.
  It seems that all the tvs now are only 50" and the  big ones are super expensive UHD panels.
 i passed on a 60" panasonic at $1299 earlier in the year and now kicking myself....

any suggestions on a 60-65" under 2500?

KDL60W600B was $1888 at JB a few weeks ago, seemed like a good buy.

KDL60W600 is an old model, make sure it doesn't suffer from the Mira effect.
Basically, grab a pure white JPG... 1080 resolution.
Pop it on a USB stick, put it into the TV and view the file as a 'photo'.
Then see if you see the 'pebble in a pond' effect. If you do, it's one of the Mexican made panels. Avoid.

Well, having recently (2 - 3 weeks ago) looked at 60" - 65" TVs, I found that Harvey Norman, Noel Leeming, JB Hifi, Dick Smith, Appliance Shed and a few PC stores like PBTech still had some available, starting around $2200 for models like the Panasonic TH-60C430Z. Some had more choice in store than online.
