Hello, I have been attempting to find a tv that suits my needs, and people kept recommending coming here to ask for help (so sorry if this is not the place). I am looking for a tv that will be around $500 (it can be more just sort of range, still want the best possible). I will mostly be using it for gaming on my xbox, my computer, and watching the four major sports (not in HD though) on Comcast. I will also watch regular tv shows like comedies, but I am not sure about how much movies I will watch on it. If I do watch a movie I would like to be great, but I suppose the others take precedence. I originally thought LED's were the way to go, but now I keep seeing how great plasma's can be with their response time, no soap opera affect, and great contrast ratio. I'm looking for about a 46" or 47" tv. I have been looking for a desk to hold to the tv and be able to do school work, but I can't really seem to find a desk long enough to fit the tv and my school (I don't know why but I can only find L-shaped desks!). So I have been thinking about mounting the tv, but I just found my wall has somewhat thin drywall so I am not sure how a plasma will fair on said wall ( could be completely off-base, never mounted a tv before. In conclusion, the search has just made me more confused and I sure could use some guidance! Also of note my laptop can play 3d, but it is not by any means a necessity. Also I willing to purchase a used or refurbished tv from a reputable site if the tv is great in quality and fits my price range. Thanks!
