I'll use it mainly for watching movies through a HTPC. I don't care about 3D or extra features, I just want picture quality. I know how to calibrate TV's (ISF cert.).
I sit at 5 feet, and have a dim ambient light behind the TV. I'll always use it in a dark room.
My budget is 500-550 USD.
For size, I'm thinking 26-32 inches.
I tried the LG26V2500 but returned it immediatly, absolutely rubbish image (even after calibration).
