As the title suggests, I'm looking to get an HDTV for my PS3. The text in my games are way too small and blurry on my current TV, and obviously that's not a good way to play anything. I've been looking around and reading up on things, but I'm still not 100% exactly what would be best. As of right now though, this TV looks to be the best one I've found for the price...

(Since I can't post a direct link to it, you can go to newegg.com and enter the item number, N82E16889611002 and it will show you the TV.)

Can anyone tell me if this would be good to play PS3 games on? If not, or if anyone has any better suggestions, I'd love to hear about them. Thanks.

Never heard of the brand Auria. Looking at some reviews, looks like some have had issues with the HDMI input, which I'm assuming is how you'll be connecting your PS3, correct? Is 26" the size you're looking for? What's your budget?

Like oktoberrust11 said, we really need a budget before we can help you. CRT-based HDTVs are really cheap on Craigslist now, I got a 36 inch Sony XBR for $150...if you don't mind moving a 200 lb. behemoth, you can really get a good deal on them.

Yeah, some of those reviews make it seem like there would be a problem with the PS3, and some make it seem fine. So, I'm thrown off a bit. My budget is right around that price, so I suppose around $300. I'd obviously like as big as I could get, but I think 24-26" would be fine. Thanks for the replies.

If you can go about $50 more, there's a 26" Samsung LCD that would be great for PS3:

It's 720p; I know the TV you referenced was 1080p, but at that size, you aren't going to be able to tell the difference anyways.
