I have not been here in a few years after receiving some great advice on a home theater set up. I'm hoping to get some help again.
I currently have an older Sony 60" DLP that I use as a computer monitor as well as watching TV with cable service. I do a lot of browsing on the net and watch downloaded movies with no major problems. I have noticed that the set suddenly goes a few shades darker every once in a while and figure the set is on its way out. It served me well for 6 years and will soon be looking for another set to browse and watch TV. Here is where hopefully someone here can help out and recommend a new TV.
The computer I have hooked up to the TV has an HDMI output so connectivity should not be a problem. I have surround system so I am not too concerned about sound quality from the TV. As mentioned earlier, I enjoy watching downloaded movies as well as sports on TV. Motion blurring is a concern of mine as my set now is 60hz and am looking forward to have less blur watching football and hockey. I am not a gamer.
I have read one of the major things to consider along with refresh rate is response time. How much stock should I put into that? Is that only a concern for gamers?
Also, from what I have read, LCD is the way to go in my situation. Is this so? I would hate to get burn in as I have left my TV on a lot with my DLP and have zero burn in now. I would like to not have to worry about it.
I am happy with the 60" and feel I could even go a bit bigger. I sit 13.5 feet from the TV.
If someone could lead me in the right direction and suggest a few TV's, I would be very grateful. I would like to keep the cost down, but would pay more for quality if there is a big difference.
Thanks for any help.
