I am in the process of looking for a 55 inch HDTV to sit over our fireplace. I have a budget of 1500 and have looked at several TV's with the following two as front runners. There are some LG's out there as well but I haven't heard enough about them as in reviews to make an honest decision.
This will be our first LED/LCD TV so I am a noob.
Seating would be about 10-15 foot back with the TV sitting about 5-6 foot up. If 55 is to big for that, other ideas are welcome. This is the first of 2 TV's that I will be buying, I have one for the bedroom and then one for our dedicated theater room.
