Default Best "non-smart" LED TV?

I am in the market to replace my ailing 60" Sony DLP TV that iis in our living room. The light engine is going out on it, so it's time for a change. I am looking for a 60"-65" LED TV with no smart capability and no 3D. I don't need a smart TV because my Vizio Blu-ray players has all of this functionality. I am looking at a budget of ~$1500 or less.

The manufacturers I have found so far have have some good reviews are Samsung and Sharp. I have been to an equal number of stores for opinions and demos and they are pretty evenly split on whether they think Samsung LEDs are best versus Sharp LEDs. So, I return to this forum (after a lengthy absence) for some needed opinions!

Here are the specific models I am considering:
Samsung UN60EH6000
Samsung UN60EH6003
Samsung UN60ES6003
Sharp LC-60LE600U
Samsung UN65EH6000 (on the outside of my budget)

I'm not too thrilled about the lack of connections with the Samsungs, but have heard the PQ is a bit better on these. Sharp TV has many connections, but I don't know as much about these TVs. I have had a 42" Samsung LED in the bedroom for about a year that has been real good.

I welcome your thoughts and opinions!

It seems you have made up your mind to get an LCD; in that size class, plasma might offer a better price (not to mention picture).

Yes, I'm pretty focused on the LEDs at this point. We watch a lot of the same programming, so burn-in potential has always turned me off to plasmas.

Plasmas in general don't suffer from burn-in much any more? You'd have to severely abuse it to have a problem. And it seems Samsungs are better than Panasonics in the burn-in department?

http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33199_7...-burn-in-test/

We bought the Samsung PN60E550 this summer and the picture is magnificent (the E530 is the non-3D version). The E530 runs $998 or less depending on where you find it.

The only "problem" is if you have a bright room which could cause glare. We have 2 patio doors and 2 windows in our living room and it hasn't bothered us at all, but others have complained. In that case you would want the E6500 which has the anti-glare filter, but it is 3D, which doesn't matter, just don't turn 3D on. It runs 2D by default. It runs $1500 + or -.

If you have a Best Buy or Fry's near you (or some other Samsung dealer) I would suggest taking a look at them? You might be surprised vs. LED?

Burn-in doesn't happen from watching the same shows/programs, it comes from leaving the same thing (paused, logos, video game score displays etc). Areas that are static and non-changing. It isn't nearly as prevalent now as previously and besides this was something we always had with CRT (old fashioned tube tv's) tyet that never kept us from buying them.
