Do you go with a smaller higher model or a larger lower model? So I'm thinking do I go with the smaller Samsung 65in Q7FN or a larger Samsung 75nu8000? Thinking just purely on viewing quality. Is bigger better than quality?

I recently had the same question. There are so many variables, that it has to come down to personal preference and experience. Would you rather have an attractive wife that can't cook, or a somewhat less attractive wife that can cook well? What if you had never seen a more attractive woman than the woman that could cook? Should you buy a Lamborghini that can't leave the city streets? Ok... back to TV's... If you were used to watching a smaller screen...If you were going to watch broadcast television with an antenna 90% of the time, the larger TV would be my recommendation... If you want the best possible picture and will be watching a lot of content that is of higher resolution, I would go with the smaller higher quality set. In a nutshell, I would go with a smaller better image quality set. Depends on your priority's... Viewing distance and angle... light or dark room... how close you like to sit to the screen... what types of content will you be viewing... what are you used to watching...What is the largest screen you would consider? If you are used to watching a 65 inch screen switching to a 50 inch screen might be a tough switch... But if you are used to watching a 50 inch 1080p screen moving to a 60 inch UHD TV would be a big step up. Even though you could go with a 50 inch UHD with great viewing angles and great back lighting, contrast frame rate, up converting etc, just going to a larger UHD screen could be the way to go for many if they are used to a 50 inch 1080p experience. Here is a link to a small poll asking the same question...

Yes, evaluate not only the TV's but also the area you will be watching it in. If it's a more of a dark room and you plan to use it for watching some quality movies then of course, go for the better resolution. Large TV's with a lower resolution will just ruin your view, mate
