    Yeah, I know there price is larger, but having owned both, there is no way Id buy the 9500 over the E6.

    I'm sure it's great, but I have a really hard time believing I'd like it so much more than the 9500 that it's worth an extra $1200.

    That's a huge difference - I just don't think I can justify it...

    As I mentioned earlier, maybe I'm better off just waiting to see if prices on the 2016s plummet at some point. The 9500 has dropped radically from its not-that-long ago price, so perhaps the 2016s would fall a lot, too, as retailers try to get rid of them.

    I could maybe convince myself to "splurge" for the C6 at a higher price than the 9500, but that extra $500 or so for the E6 is a bridge too far!

    If you can spring for the C6 then I think you'll won't regret your decision. What is the sales tax percentage in your area? Give Robert Zohn a call to find out more about the difference in the displays and pricing.

    I guess I'm leery of the curved screen - it seems like it comes with its own complications. Am I mistaken?

    I'm using the EG9600 that has a curved screen. I thought it would be annoying; however, frankly, I don't notice any particular issues with the curve. It faded from consciousness pretty quick as far as I was concerned. Of course, I'm the only one watching it. For all I know there could be issues with off axis viewing; although, my sisters sat and watched it and they didn't bring up any complaints about it. YMMV though.

    And to be honest, the C6 curve is not near as bad as you think it is, very slight.

    Hey, you don't know how bad I think the curve is - you can't read my mind!!! ;)

    I've just heard some not-so-positive things about curved sets and all else being equal, I'd prefer flat...
