I definitely couldn't give away my landed cost though. But those are nice tvs as well. Personally I'm a plasma guy, but if I get an led it will be a new Sony. Great colors and blacks, the new 2013 models other than the xbr 4k tv are being more aggressively priced as well since they're gonna be mostly passive 3D. when it all comes down to it, choose the TV on your eyes and maybe some professional reviews but don't judge it off of star ratings.
I'm here if you have any other questions

update* no pics just yet
The Tv got delivered last night , havnt had chance todo anything with it , the installer who was supposed to put it up I guess got turned off by the fact that I have to run a couple 50 ft hdmi's across the house to conceal the box and run multiple electrical outputs 1 behind the fireplace and 1 inside a closet that are 30 ft apart , hard to find somone who does this on the weekends so im buying my own wires and got a electrician buddy coming tomorrow morning , hopefully by tomorrow night it will be up and running ..
Ive had a couple ppl come quote the install and the lowest was $550 plus the cost of the 50ft hdmi cables which ive seen run from $50 to $200+ each. I had one dude come in and quote me $350 but when he mentioned running extension cords , that was where he got told thanks very much for coming ..
The tv will be sitting pretty high , the mantle is at 65 inchs and tv will be mounted about 6 inches higher then that , at the height I think it will need to be tilted to the max allowance or else it will be like we are looking up to the ceiling to watch tv lol .
other then installation my only other issue at moment is that by concealing the box in the closet , i just got the RF remote to be able to change channels through the walls , but my DVD player isnt RF capable only IR so I have to either buy one that is or just hook up existing one for now and have to walk up to the closet everytime I want to fast forward or press play . I guess I will just run the wiring for now and well see about the extra components . We dont watch much dvd due to online streaming and what not ,
I was also advised to run a cat5 and run the tv directly hardwired to the modem , but that would consist of having to move the modem and rewire a patch for the internet to run to the closet so well see how this works out
Man so much for just buying the damn tv and putting it up , this concealing boxes and wires stuff is a bitch when the house isnt prewired to your exact location specs .
will update tomorrow with pics hopefully ,

You should have asked!
I would have advised against 50dt hdmi cables, and used port extenders. You can use those with 2 cat6 cables and go up to 380ft, plus cary the audio, ir, and more.

I feel like such a noob. I didn't even know TVs above 60 inch existed and TVs above 2,000$ existed :/ I guess I don't shop enough.

Anyone know anything about the 80" Sharp (don't remember what model, but it was around $1700 at Sam's) almost replaced the 60"plasma with it, but was concerned with picture quality compared with the current LG plasma.

Speaking of TV's has anyone heard of the Seiki 50-inch 4K TV going for like $1,500? I heard it's the cheapest 4k TV out and sure the brand is unknown but so far the reviews aren't bad. Honestly I might just get it for a computer monitor.Your best teacher, is your last mistake. -
