I"m looking to get a new TV, I currently have a Toshiba TheaterView Projection TV that's around 10 years old its not even 480p
and a Dell 32 inch 720p LCD in my bedroom.
I was originally looking at the panny plasma's due to the great review on pq but was turned off by the rising black levels and was afraid of potential burn in issues.
1500-2000 budget is slightly flexible if there is a Massive difference in performance for a few more dollars. We plan on keeping this TV 5+ years and would rather buy 1 good TV vs many cheap ones.
2. Seating distance
3. Size/placement limitations
none, but was looking for 55+ hopefully
4. Uses and sources
HD Sports, Blu-ray, PS3 Gaming
5. Room lighting
Bright Room in the day. Have shades but wife complains that she lives in a cave currently because that's the only way the Toshiba is remotely watchable. Would prefer some kind of anti-glare.
I also have an Onkyo SR-606 5.1 set up so sound is not an issue but they need to play nice together.
Some TV's I've been looking at: LG 55LH90, Sharp AQUOS LC60E77UN, Samsung LN55C650
