Hello.

I'm sure that this question has been brought up many, many times...

What are some good LCD TV's currently on the market for 1K?

I'm upgrading from a 42" LCD Insignia (bought 4 years ago).

I'm looking for something in the 46- 55" range. This TV will be used in a family room that has allot of sunlight, mainly used to watch TV (sports) and movies at night. I'm not interested in 3D. A SmartTV is a plus, but not really needed as I will be using an XBOX for Netflix,etc. Also, audio isn't a big deal as I will be using an external system.

I'm mainly interested in getting the best TV (picture wise) for the $$$.

My budget is 1K.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Is the $1000 a rough limit or fixed in stone?

Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.

My budget only allows for 1K.

Thanks.

The range you mention hits two distinct sizes. Is there a preference between the 46"-class and 55"-class?

Here's the Sony 46" KDL750, currently at $1098 (but prices are tumbling from now until the 2013 models are out during the next few months). http://www.amazon.com/Sony-BRAVIA-KDL46HX750-46-Inch-Internet/dp/B006U1VGW4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360606766&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+750
The folks I know with Sonys have always been happy with it's interpolative rendition of motion, it's a 240Hz, and the sonys I've seen have better off-angle vewing than most others in their respective price ranges.

Here's the 47LM7600, currently at $1067 (but prices falling), http://www.amazon.com/LG-47LM7600-47-Inch-LED-LCD-Glasses/dp/B006ZH0KVG/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1360607006&sr=1-2&keywords=lm7600, it's primarily known for it's 3D, is 240Hz, but does have flashlighting issues/light-bleed issues.

And if you want 55", consider the Samsung 55EH6000 (not a slim model) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0074FGSBY
