Hi

I need to purchase a 55 inch display for work. Its going to be in a brightly lit office setting, and needs to be as thin as possible so I'm assuming I need an LED TV.

My main problem is that most of the new, thin displays seem to have built in wifi and I need one without.

Any recommendations for a good PQ, thin, bright, non glare, TV without biultin WIFI? Preferably under $2000 thats why we are going with consumer display.

Thanks for your help!

That's a tall order, but if you can give up just a hair of the thinness here's one for you...... The LG 55LK520. No wifi. Get em before they're all gone for good though. http://www.amazon.com/LG-55LK520-55-...4113709&sr=8-1 or here http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CCcQ8wIwAQ

If you need a newer, thin display, check out the Sony KDL-55EX640. It's a 55" edge-lit LED with Internet apps, and comes with the wi-fi USB dongle in the box included, but you can just simply not use it or toss it out. While it has an ethernet port, wi-fi is not built into the set itself.

The LG LM5800 may be a better option. 55" edge-lit LED with passive 3D without any smart TV features or wi-fi.

"We saw some big problems here. The corners of the screen were especially noticeable. On an all-black screen, the edgelights showed through like light towers at a movie premiere. These lights cast a long, uneven haze throughout the picture that reached the center of the screen, making everything really blotchy. When watching shadowy content, these lights were obvious. It's not what you want to see when watching a serious or spooky scene. Screen uniformity has been a problem for edgelit LED models, but especially for those produced by Sony. It seems they have not quite learned a lesson yet."


"Sony continuously has trouble with flashlighting artifacts, even in their top-tier models, and the Bravia KDL-40EX640 is yet another example.

In the end, we have a very average Smart TV that is not as easy to use as the better performing competition. Take a look at other models, and you will probably find something that better suits your needs."

Why would he care about flashlighting/clouding? Its going into an office setting. The Sony should be a good choice for you, its under budget and has a matte screen and matte bezel.
