Heya I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on these 2 tvs. They are both selling for 599 in my area which is about right with my current budget. This is going to be a "living area" tv but until I can move into a house and start on my dedicated theater it will also be my main movie screen as well. I don't care about pip or really any "extras". What i mostly would like to know about is the quality of Apex (which I honestly have never had any experience with). I will probably make my way to the local American and check out the actual picture quality tomorrow. Thanks guys.
