I agree with not bothering with Hitachi.
As for the Samsungs, I've been looking at these as well, so I went to see them on display in the store today. Rtings.com wasn't kidding when they said picture degrades rapidly when viewed at an angle. If you will have it directly in front of the bed, it will be a great TV. If it will be off at an angle, it won't be your best choice. In my observations, the LG or even a Vizio work better at angles.

I'm about the furthest thing from being a videophile (much more into audio, actually), but personally I wouldn't even keep the Hitachi on a list with those other choices. I understand it's going in your bedroom, but do your eyes become less discerning when you enter the bedroom? (Don't answer that.....lol!)
Myself, I'd look at the two Samsungs. They are almost identical except the 6290 gives up all Bluetooth connectivity and has a much more basic remote.....the remote is what may tip the balance towards the 6300 in my eyes.
The LG's good, but I more favor the Samsung.
What about this one Samsung UN55MU6490 It is a curved TV and same price as the UN55MU6300 but has more HDMI and USB slots. Does anyone have a curved TV Is it better to see from the side? Not that it really matters since the bed is straight ahead. I do have a chaise to the left of the TV and was thinking of changing the stand I have now which is stationary to one that turns if I am sitting there. I am so confused LOL
