Buying My First HD TV & Need Help
 
OK so I'm finally getting an HD TV and I have no clue what to buy. I think the biggest screen I can get is a 37 inch because of limited space (38 inch wide is the max) to place the TV. Other then that I'm clueless. So give me some advise on brands and what to look for. Thanks

im not all that informed about tvs, electronics, etc but i did read several articles a few weeks ago where they talked about how the HD tvs (not usre if its plasma, etc) are very over supplied right now and prices are expected (if not already) to be cut by 25%.

so right now or in the next month they say is the best time to buy a tv in a long time.

Firstdown, I'd either way another month or so if possible or if you get a TV from a store see if they have a price adjustment policy: [url=http://www.pricepinx.com/lowest_price_guarantee.php]Lowest Price Guarantee Policy Information for Retailers - Get a Price Drop Alert and then a Refund[/url]

Yeah prices are expected to really drop for Christmas this year, I would hold out until then if you can.

Matty I'm surprised you of all people should know that electronics are usually out dated pretty quick and the most resent link you gave was over a year old. The other ones are from 2007.

3D and super thin LED TVs are the hot shit now. What is your budget?

Other then 3D (which is stupid BTW) there is nothing new, get a Panasonic 1080p and you will be all set.

Do you really trust a rating site that is paid for by the companies advertising what they are rating? Thats my biggest hang up with these on line rating sites.

I like the Panasonic and I figured what ever I get I want 1080p. What else do you look for in these TV's.

One mistake I made when I bought my Samsung a few years ago was not paying attention to the megahertz, so I got a 40" 1080p with 60Hz and I really wish I had the same TV only with 120HZ. When I'm watching something with a lot of action (ie football highlights that are closer to the action than the normal TV angle) I notice pixelization. Its not the worst thing in the world but it can be annoying.

At the same time, I've heard that 240Hz can make some images look kind of weird. Like if you're watching a movie the screen can give it a weird digital TV feel, if that makes any sense. The only thing about this is that you can turn the refresh rate down when you're watching a movie or regular TV and then turn it back up when you're watching sports.
