What's the best 65 inch TV?

i have looked at the Samsung LCD 65 inch. Uneven backlighting is a BIG problem with that set ... at least for me. If you like your picture big and bright, it might be ok, but watching it in a less vibrant mode major uneven backlight become apparent. At $6,000, i was very disappointed.

I'm also interested in opinions on this. Maybe a Panasonic 65" plasma or the Samsung 63" plasma (B590). Help would be appreciated. Right now I am getting by with a 13" tube set after my 36" Sony failed. That has been a major adjustment.

Mitsubishi DLP is the best bang for the buck, by far! Model WD-65737 has a lot of great features, is smoother than even the latest 240-htz LCDs, and at a mere 16" depth, you can probably set it on a shelf. It can be had for between $1199-1399, depending on where you look. Compare to the price of a similar size flat panel, and you get the picture--literally!

I've never noticed the backlighting issue with the samsungs. I actually prefer the samsungs for the "prettier" picture (more contrast/saturation) but realistically, its not true calibrated color. I'm a photographer so I really enjoy the extra pop the saturation/contrast gives.

The tech who came to investigate my complaint was surprised as well. Usually he has nothing against Samsung. Two televisions of the same model (LN65B650) had the same problems.

I am also interested in opinions here. My almost 7 year old Mitsu 65" RP is fading and now that I just picked up the LG390 Blu Ray, I'm itching for 1080p. My trusted home theater guy is heavily recommending the Panasonic TC-P65V10. Room doesn't work with a projector so I'm looking at plasma. Thoughts?
