Cheers my Sony brother. Couldn't be happier with my XBR65X930E's picture.

What you need to do is keep visiting the store and asking if they have the TV you want in stock. Eventually they won't and you ask for the floor model with a warranty. I got my 55" a few years ago, was already on sale for $899 but I walked out the door, literally with the TV, for $500.

I've had a Vizio 32" basic LED 1080P tv for 6 years now, no problems.

We've been rocking a 43" 1080P Emerson that is 15 years old (it was my wife's TV before I met her) No problems and quality was good enough. Only reason I just bought a new Vizio 50" 4k was because I wanted to mount TV to the wall and the Emerson was legit 100lbs.

The problem with this approach is you are assuming the employees have set up the tv's in some fashion. Most likely, they just turned them on to max brightness. So it's a poor comparison because the settings have not been even attempted to be adjusted. I'm not willing to be the goober who goes in there and tries to calibrate the 3-5 displays I may be comparing. So I stick to reviews, AVS, and price points.

I was going to get into all of this but decided against it because most consumers just don't care. They oogle over the shitty dynmaic mode the TV is in, buy it, bring it home and slap that **** back into horrible dynamic mode and enjoy it....even if it really does look like crap

Yea, I get deep into specs even though I'm more of a casual viewer.

I enjoy researching as well. Personally I wouldn't window shop TV's because of the things you mentioned.
