Have lurked for a couple months. Mainly looking at speakers, but I took care of that, so now TV's
Have been sitting around waiting for that Vizio like a lot of people and when it was cancelled, I guess I figured it was time to start shopping. Hopefully an expert or two can make some recommendations.Budget:
Can do $3000
push to $3500 if there is an exceptional tv that is soooo worth going the extra couple hundred.Seating Distance:
60"+Uses & Sources:
HD: PS3/360, BluRay and Television. (Very infrequently: PC gaming or streaming of video)
Non-HD: Netflix, Wii & Television.
All routed through a receiver with HDMI. Poor audio on the tv, itself, isn't an issue.Room Lighting:
Usually pretty dark. No windows on the opposite side of the room. In fact, at the moment, no real windows in
the room to speak of....but its interconnected with the dining room and a "sun" room of sorts. That'll probably change with some remodeling but the back yard has a large pecan tree near the back of the house, so I doubt any direct sunlight shining in.
I've been bitten by the LED bug, but with some convincing, LCD is possible. I have a 52" LCD phillips (52PFL7422D) that I really know nothing about. Got it a couple years ago with no research....just went to Sams and got it with a check from Sylvania (Our first flat panel....a plasma that developed a pink line down the middle. Can't complain, though. They cut us a check for the purchase price two years after we bought it)The whites washout when playing FIFA 10, I know that much.
Anyways, looking to move it somewhere else and get a new centerpiece for the living room.
