Hi. I'm replacing an old sony tube TV with a flat panel TV. I have narrowed my choices down to the following:

Samsung UN46EH5000
LG 47LN5400
Samsung UN46EH6030

All are close enough in cost that price isn't a factor. I don't do any gaming at all. This will be TV via satellite, sports, and DVDs. SmartTV isn't a selling point with me at all. Really, I just want a great picture quality and a decent sound.

I read that Samsung sometimes uses other manufacturer's panels in their TVs? That is somewhat concerning - reputation of their panels is one of the reasons they are attractive. I don't understand that at all.

Please let me know your thoughts with these choices - i'm overwhelmed with all the reviews and specs out there. IF you know of other, superior, units that are under $600 and 46"-47", please share.

thanks!

Forget numbers for a bit go look at some TV's. Samsung and LG,s have their look to a picture you need to decide which you like better. Just like it was with Sony back when you bought it.
Since you watch sports you have a really good yardstick for judging TV's. Go out to stores on the weekend, right now baseball and football are both being broadcast and watch some games.Go to Sears, Best Buy, basically any store you can get to. The more you watch the more you find what you like and what you don't.
Spend some time doing this and your decision will get easier. Kick the tires a bit. Numbers don't mean a thing if you don't like the way it looks.

"Bring out yer dead!".."Wait I'm not dead yet!"..(Sound Austrian here) "WRONG !!" (You know what happens next..)

Thanks for the advice. I was able to get to a couple stores today and, based on my experiences, I'm able to confidently eliminate the LG from the equation. In both stores, the Samsung display was far better than the LG.

So, can anybody lend any advice on choosing between these two Samsungs?
