Was thinking of stepping up to a 70 / 80 inch but I'm a plasma lover and they are way out of my budget ... Hate to say it but is LCD LED my only choice .... I hate off axis issues .... Any suggestions on something close to a plasma are greatly appreciated thanks !!

Check out some of the higher end Panasonic LED/LCD sets with their IPS panels. This type of display is a considerable improvement over the older LCD displays. They advertise a 178 degree angle for the IPS. I have an ET5 set and it does have a pretty wide viewing angle without much light fall off.

You'll be hard pressed to find a 70 or 80" with plasma quality for that price. Vizio would be about your only choice in that range, maybe there 2014 lineup would be something you could look into but even then the blacks won't be nearly as dark, buy may be good enough for your liking. All of the new models will be backlit displays with local dimming so that will help some.

Sorry..... any 70-80+ in TV in the sub $2K pricerage will look like

I have a several year old Mits Diamons 73in DLP which would be what I would suggest looking for if your budget is so low and you want a big screen. Try to find a used one somewhere and go that route..... yea the cabnet is probably 18in thick or so.... I think you are MUCH better off getting a better quality smaller TV vs a low end large TV

I went to the local audio shop a few days ago due to my TV needing new light cannons or whatever they are called, debating on buying new vs fixing this 7yr old TV. They had several Sharp TV with their 90+in TV in a room as well as a 80in. The 90in looked like ..... horrible quality.... no colors...detail etc in a dark home theatre room. The other TV which now that I think of it was either a 70 or 80in was priced around $5.5K and had excellent quality. Black was black and excellent detail/color/etc..... sales dood told me that Sharp and Pioneer Elite had a thing for a while and sharp uses a lot of their tech

If you can push the dollar amount closer to $3K I would give a visit to your local shop that carries sharp (A company I have never been a fan of in the past). The sales guy at a local store had if I recall a 70in prices at $2600 which has everything the $5.5K TV had minus if I recal 4K upscaling and something else I cannot recall. Maybe it was 3d & flawless panel?? He stated Sharp had a order on these TV's then the buyer backed out or possibly the store closed so they have them on clearance.

I didn't look at the TV's from the side so no input on how they look from there.
