I’d like to help you out Doc but I do have bills as well.
[quote=Dr. Who;2130158]Okay, thanks everyone for the feedback. This is just to get me by for another year so I can save up for something along the lines of a Samsung LCD with 120 hrtz as well. I am a member of Costco and I am watching that site as well they will have a [B][U]Vizio 50" Plasma HDTV - $999.99[/U][/B] So that may be an option as well.
I understand that you get what you pay for as well but this isn’t always the case either just at times. Like I said the main thing the TV will be doing is to watch DVD’s & BluRay movies as well plus my Direct TV will be hooked up to it.
I am still looking what BF will be having each day and taking those in consideration as well but I am just wanting a LCD TV to do the basics and have the HDMI connections as well for now.[/quote]
By the end of this year Sony will be releasing a 200 and some hrtz LCD. Which means next year all the 120’s will be old news…sadly:a. I am curious, if you have a $1000 budget and you want to get something good, why not just get a 40" Samsung with the 60hrtz motion? I am almost positive you could get that for right around $1000. Also, if you are trying to stay @ 42" and $1000 look into some of the other good quality brands I listed in my earlier post. You are misunderstanding the basics of an LCD TV. If you buy ANY of the original tv’s you listed ALL of your 480 standard def channels will look like hell. Plasma is nice but not as long lasting as LCD. I will look around online to see if I can find you something in a little better quality in your price and size range.
