Great price. Add a Boxee Box to it for $130 and more you have a setup smarter than any overpriced smart tv is.

I bought this TV around black friday when best buy had it for the same price. I already sold it and picked up a samsung 60" plasma. No joke, you couldnt pay me to take this thing back. If you play video games, STAY AWAY. The input lag is so bad its about unplayable. Movies and TV had audio lag a bit as well, IE the audio is delayed compared to the video playng so the lips dont match,etc. Picture quality was ok for slower scenes but anything with movement or games was an absolute nightmare, I didn't think they would produce something this bad even at this price point.

As a long-time SDer who has mostly followed TV prices despite almost never having bought one (I bought one and convinced a friend to buy another), why isn't this a better bargain?

Some history: My bro bought a 50-inch tv for the family while I was working overseas and at the time it was a great deal. About $2,000 and it was OCLED (or something like that) Sony display, which was discontinued years ago. The bulb it required costs over $100 and lasts about a year. I have no intentions on letting my parents squander money, but I think as older people they would prefer a bigger screen over higher quality. Their whole lives they bought the biggest tv at the cheapest price. Also, their eyesight is quickly diminishing. So....for old people with little to no idea about quality, is this still not a great deal? I mean, is there a better deal on a similar size tv in the current or near future? Because, they had the same 27 inch tv for like 20 years when I was growing up.

Thanks in advance anyone who read the whole message. I'm waiting on a bad ass 55+ inch that gets crazy thumbs up before I personally pull the trigger.

You must have done something wrong with your setup. I had no lag playing games on my XBOX. I didn't have any audio lag issues either. Keep in mind that the default settings are no good. After the video adjustments, I had my p.o.s. Samsung 46" side by side and the picture quality was very comparable if not a bit too bright. But then again, if you were relying on the built-in speakers for your audio, then I think you were doomed to fail.

Appreciate the feedback! For anyone wondering about LCD vs. LED vs. Plasma, from what I've experienced, the large TVs (55"+) have difficulty with fast motion (for obvious reasons) and as such, the Plasmas work better than most all. On that subject, you should really research, research, research, RESEARCH the reviews on your standard google search as those reviews are very qualified. Pay attention to the review date and the Model number. The LEDs were clear winners about 3 years ago but with huge screens, 3D, and trying to find a happy medium between gaming vs. hi-def vs. sports, the argument has really reverted back to plasma even with the added energy cost. If there is one thing people are conscious about turning off before they leave the house (or room for that matter), it is definitely turning off the tele, and thus, the energy consumption between LED and Plasma is relatively low considering the life of the TV (maybe $90-$120 per year).

Case in point - LEDs are typically TOO bright, you'll find that when you visit your favorite electronics stores.

Doubtful. All of the same gear/setup worked great through the old TV, and the new samsung. I'm using a Denon AVR-1911 to route everything through. Perfect on old Panasonic plasma before the sharp, and perfect on the Samsung plasma after. It is possible that I got a dud set, but reading on AVS and google, it seems im not the only one with the audio sync/lag issues.

Or you can buy a bluray disc player that has all that built in for a decent price or a PS3.

avsforumdotcomhassome interesting info. Mostly good for a 60" @this price.
FWIW I have a 60" sony nx810. Its a smart tv but my bluray and ps3 have al that anyway so its redundant.

For picture quality and motion, plasma is still tops, but they are still frequently too dim for bright rooms, especially all the highly rated Panasonic plasmas. The other problem with plasma, is that even though permanent burn-in is mostly a thing of the past, image retention is still a major problem. For someone who is managing the TV by themselves, it's fine, but in a family setting with a spouse and kids who want to watch anything and everything at any time of day, which includes static images and black bars, image retention can become a major issue. Until OLED becomes affordable there is no one technology fits all. Some gamers have also had difficult times with image retention on plasma, but it's often the matter of what they are playing and the conditions.

Overall, plasma is still losing marketshare to LED/LCD, with it recently falling to a mere 6% of global TV shipments vs 88% for LCD/LED. LG has reduced their plasma offerings for 2013 and I'm not sure how long Panasonic will keep on with it given their recent financial trouble. From what I remember, they have already made cuts to R&D money for plasma.

I bought a Sharp Aquos 60" LC-60E77UN Lcd tv almost exactly 3 years ago. I'm not a super TV-techie, but I think the 60" Sharp Aquos LC60E69U 1080p LCD HDTV is fairly similar to what I have. I know, in terms of technology, 3 years is a HELL of a long time, but my TV pic looks as good as the day I bought it. Is it absolutely the most amazing picture I've ever seen? Maybe not, but it's a damn fine TV....I paid around $1000 and that was using every discount trick known to man at the time, slick deals included! If you want a very nice 60 inch LCD for $700, grab it....Don't forget Disc**** CB for another $35 off!!
