As the title says, my EX700 has developed a fault, and so JL have offered to swap it with a different model, which is ideal for me as it'll give me another 5 years warranty. Having worked there, I know how decent their customer care is, so I'd like to buy the TV through them. The old model is a 50 inch, and replaced a 55F8000, which I love (it's now in the bedroom). The drop in size from 55 to 50 wasn't the end of the world, but I would like to go back to a 55 if possible. I loved the contrast on the EX700 - the only downsides to the TV are brightness (it's just quite dim - not noticeably more reflective than the F8000) and some sub par smearing with high contrast scenarios. It's also got some major vertical banding with grey pictures, but it's not a major issue, and I know it can vary TV to TV. I've been looking at the MU7000, and I can get it for 699 price matched with JL - 200 more than I paid for my EX700. This is about the max I want to spend on a TV. Any tips and experience would be much appreciated.
