HDTV Help

Me and my girlfriend are about to buy a TV together (yeah first big thing we have bought together. LOL) But anyone who had a HD TV help me out what should we be looking out for.

Re: HDTV Help

Buy 1080p the first time. If you go cheaper and pick up a 780p now, you'll probably want to replace it later just because you're going HD and you want the absolute best picture possible. As I've posted before, I have two Sharp Aquos LCD's (30" and 52") and they are awesome.

Re: HDTV Help

What's your budget? Amazon has Panasonic 42" 1080P Plasma on sale for $1399 with free shipping...you won't find better quality/features/price ratio.

I have a Panasonic plasma myself. Can't go wrong with Panasonic at all, one of the better brands out there for plasmas.

Don't buy the black Vizios that WalMart sells, if you can help it. They are of lesser quality than the ones that have the silver trim (found in Sears, Costco, etc).

Anywho, it's a daily struggle not to exercises tyranny. Be thankful you are not afflicted with such a treacherous ailment.

If that's the case then you would be crazy not to buy Panasonic. Whatever you do don't go the cheap route cause you'll get what you pay for.

"As with the larger sets above, these TVs did well with the basic attributes of picture quality. The Samsung LN-T4053H is a 40-inch set with 720p resolution, generally fine for this screen size, which doesn't maximize the benefit of 1080p's finer resolution. It offers a lot for the price, including deep blacks and excellent DVD quality. Its viewing angle was typical for an LCD.
The Sony Bravia KDL-40V3000 1080p set had an excellent, detailed picture and great color. Its 720p sibling, the Sony Bravia KDL-40S3000, did almost as well for a few hundred dollars less. Both have a typical viewing angle.
The 1080p LG 42LBD 1080p set was very good across the board. The Toshiba Regza 42HL67 stands out for excellent and detailed picture quality at a good price. The LG and Toshiba had a very good viewing angle, better than most sets'."

"All three 720p sets offer very good picture quality for the price, though it's a step below the best. The Insignia had a typical viewing angle, while the Vizio had a very good viewing; we don't have data for the previously tested Olevia."
"
These four 720p sets all had excellent picture quality with all content, though blacks could have been deeper, as is often the case with LCD displays. Both Sony models displayed the finest detail and great color. The pricier and newer of the two, the Sony Bravia KDL-32XBR4, has more features and connections. The Panasonic had a very wide viewing angle-the best we've seen on an LCD TV-and the higher-priced Sony was very good. The others had a good viewing angle, typical for most LCD displays. The Samsung had great color."
