I recently moved and am looking for a budget LCD while the next best thing comes out and is perfected in a couple of years, be it 3D or not.
I live in PR
, where HDTV sales are not common at all.
Today I saw the 46XV640U at an affordable price, and next to it, they had the 46XV540U in clearance for $20 less.
I know the 540 is older (2008's model?), but by looking at the specs at the Toshiba website, either it has more features (branded as a Regza, has a 10-bit panel, etc), or the 640 features are not as detailed.
The price difference makes me think the 540 is/was much more feature rich than the 640, considering it's in clearance for basically the same price.
I will use it for quite a bit of gaming, too, but noticed both are rated equal by the manufacturer and have a game mode option.
Opinions are appreciated and most likely welcome.
