[QUOTE=platinumsword;1937896]Making a purchase on a new t.v. can be quite difficult and sometimes overwhelming for an individual, here are some links for you to look at, you might be able to find some other individuals opinions on your particular t.v.
You could also try googling for reviews on your t.v and read them objectively.
Looking at what features that standout on a t.v. , to me there are some important features that I would look for apart from the obvious.
[B]Resolution:[/B] What does it support (1920 x 1080)
[B]Contrast Ratio:[/B] The most important part is the Native Contrast Ratio, not the Dynamic Contrast Ratio.
[B]Frame Rate Conversion:[/B] 120 Hz will become the new standard
Response Time:[/B] The lower the number the better. ( IE 4ms )
Different manufactures will have different viewing modes when the signal is feed to the T.V and will have different names. The more modes offered is a nice feature and to be able to manipulate the input will make one a happier person.
Suitable for viewing wide-screen 1.78:1 aspect ratio program, stretch mode will show very thin black bands at the top and bottom screen.
[B]Dot by Dot ( 1080i/p only)[/B]
Detects the resolution of the signal and displays an image with the same number of pixels on the screen.
[B]Full screen ( 720p only ) [/B]
Select when receiving a 720p signal.
Suitable for viewing wide-screen 2.35:1 aspect-ratio programs in full screen.
