    There's not a doctor in this country that can give you that many inches for $1,500.


    *ba boom ching!*

    In all seriousness, I'd look at LG. My folks have one, it's pretty delicious.

      This is probably in the wrong forum.


      But anyway,


      If you go Plasma, then get Panasonic. They make the best screens for the money. It's not even close.

      If you go DLP, then try Samsung or Toshiba.

      If you LCD, then get a Sony or Sharp.

      They can be very helpfull with any followup questions you may have.

        You can get a good Plasma screen for that much. Check out Vizio.

        I just bought the 42" Plasma to replace my 52" HD projection TV. It's a beautiful picture (from what I have read...haven't seen the TV yet) and has a whole lotta neat features.

        Here's the link to my TV. It's a little outside your price range, but probably well worth it...

            I just want to add, that with HDTV, you get what you pay for.

            If you are going to go the cheap route then make sure you get the extended warrenties.

            The life of modern HDTV's can vary on design and if you go cheap you may end up buying a 1500 dollar paper weight.

              Agreed. I've done quite a bit of research, as I usually do before making a big purchase. Vizio is getting great reviews from all different places and get amazing customer reviews. The cool thing about their TVs that I like is the 60,000 hour bulb life. If your bulb ever burns out, it costs about $200 for a new bulb and you can change it yourself in 5 minutes. The 52" TV that we have in the living room now will be tossed. We have a 32" Samsung LCD in the bedroom and now the 46" LCD in the living room. Samsung is pretty darn good quality as well.

                We've been doing extensive home improvements, due to a refinance. I'm at the end of my money though, and don't have much to buy a HDTV. I've seen some 30" HDTV traditional tube tvs. DK, does this mean it will be total crap? I don't have another grand to put into a tv.
                Victory and defeat are matters of the temporary force of circumstance.



                Thanks, Snk16!!

                    Awesome, thanks for your replies.

                    I'm leaning towards this one:

                    http://www.bestbuyplasma.com/Plasma/...Sku_Y_HLS5087W

                    I'm looking for more gaming and stuff and I read DLP was a good choice.

                      Check out the link I posted a few posts up and look at their TVs. You can buy them direct from them or at Sam's Club and Cosco.

                        I just got this TV here from best buy. I showed up early sunday morning with a price from amazon.com and they matched it. It ended up being around $2,200 or so. FYI, if you are financing, best buy has no interest for 3 years.

                          Seems like a good choice. I gave my 5085w to my parents. If you're a gamer, you have to go dlp due to burn-in problems with plasma and lcd. But each has its pros and cons.

                            You don't "have" to go to a DLP for gaming. Burn-in doesn't come from playing games and it isn't a problem. Burn-in happens from one image staying on the screen for very extended periods of time. I have left something on pause (movie, tv, or games) over night and have no screen burning on any of my TVs, this includes the 32" Samsung plasma screen in my bedroom.

                              I second the suggestion of AVSforums listed below. There are forums for RPTV (rear projection) and flat screens, depending on your preference.

                              If you are looking flat screen, than you might want to look at Vizio. They seem to be setting new price thresholds.

                              If you are going RPTV, I would suggest a DLP over LCD. Contrary to what some people say, LCD's do still burn in when gaming, of if you pause something for an extended period of time.

                              I recently bought a new RPTV for my office/game room. After reading a bunch on AVSForums and elsewhere, I opted for a Samsung 50" DLP. They seem to be very well liked, and they are cheaper than most of the competition. I paid around $1500 for it, and went with the 720p (versuses 1080i) variety to save a few dollars.

                              After getting my Infocus Projector and the 118" screen in the living room earlier in the year, I couldn't see going through this NFL season without HDTV in my office also, which is where I am relegated for most non-Bronco games.
