I am looking for suggestions on a 60-70" LED Smart TV. My price range is say 1000-1500. As a reference I found this: Vizio 65" M651D-A2 Theater 3D Smart for $1300. Is this any good? Are there better for the same price? Suggestions please.

Buy a plasma. Less money, better in every single way.

LCD TV(of which LED is just a backlight)

 

Pros:

Power consumption

Brightness (and this is only a "win" if you place your TV right next to a window and watch between 11-2 in the afternoon)

 

Negatives:

Contrast

Motion artifacting

Color gamut

Hot spotting

Ghosting

 

Plasma

 

Negative:

Power consumption (when in reality...when both plasma and LCD are producing "black"...the LCD uses more energy)

 

Positives:

Color Gamut

Motion control

Contrast

It can't ghost or hot spot.

I'm biased towards Sammy (Samsung) with a 240Hz refresh rate. Then again, that's just me.  I have a UN55D7000, love it.  Have owned Sony in the past, like Sammy much better.


See you at the pah-ty, Richter.

You mean LCD backlit with LED(we like to be purists).

 

Do you want edge-lit? or back-lit?

 

Edge-lit pro is "thinner"

 

Back-lit pro is it doesn't have issues like edge-lit(go to Best Buy, I was there Saturday. They had 7 open-box Edge-Lit LCD returns).

To get better than that Vizio youll need to decrease the screen size or increase your budget.

Or drop the smart features from the TV and get a Roku for $60-100.Panasonic 60s60 is around $1000.

Price is firm at no more than $1500 with shipping or delivery.
