Hey guys, as mentioned in my beginner's thread, I building a new HT setup over the next 2-3 months.
Anyway, I decided to keep things simple I will just stick with a TV and though I agree 100% that plasma looks better, I can't find any I liked that are 70-75", which is the size I've decided on for this room.
That being said, I was initially looking at a Samsung UN75H6350 which i believe is a 2014 model and seems to meet my requirements.
However, while squandering my work time yesterday looking for cheaper deals on the components I've selected, I found that last years UN75F6300 can be had for $1999 versus the cheapest H6350 I found around $2400.
So my question is, would you guys recommend I suck up the extra $400 for the newer model, or will I probably not notice any real difference?
I looked at the tech specs, and I have seen 65" versions of both in person - the awful uncalibrated way the stores have them set I can't really see any difference in display quality, and the only 'big' tech difference (that I am aware of) is that the 2013 model has a dual-core CPU, while the newer 2014 model has a quad core CPU.
I don't care about the smart apps - I just want a giant, decent-looking screen to watch blu rays and occasionally play a PC or old console video game on.
What do you guys think?
