Please - I plan to buy a new TV this week and would just like some opinions.
I would like to buy a new HDTV within a few weeks or so. I've been doing months of research and I've narrowed it down to either the Sony KDS-R60XBR2 or Samsung HL-S6188W (I'm slightly leaning towards the Sony, but it still could go either way). I want to choose the best one. I've been doing so much research and I've seen so my different opinions.
To tell you a little bit about my situation - I like to watch a lot of TV (including movies and sports), I plan to get Digital Cable with HD, I'm a big video gamer and I plan to get the Playstation 3. This TV will be on a stand, and I'll be sitting approx 14 ft away from the screen. Sunlight is not much of an issue. I'm looking for the HDTV with the best picture thats also reliable. I hope to keep this TV for a good amount of years. Hopefully this helps give you a better understanding about my circumstances.
Just a few questions also:
1. I saw both TVs at my nearby Circuit City. They both looked fantastic. I thought the Sony did have slightly better picture. My only question is that, I don't know if it's just me, but the Sony seems to be wider, but the height looks shorter than the Samsung. Maybe it's just an optical allusion because of the speakers that stick out. I know the Sony is 1" shorter diagonally, but would you happen to know the differences in screen size between the 2 TVs? I don't want the screen to look extra wide.
2. Is it possible to get the "green blob" or dead pixels on the Sony?
