Hey finally registered for this site because this site is so helpful. Seriously its the best place on the net! Anyway my first thread is about my future LCD purchase.

I finally will upgrade from a great Samsung HD CRT to an LCD.

Both TVs are in my price range but some specs make them different.

The uses would be HD viewing, DVDs, TV, 360.

The factors differing between both sets are the ratio and pixels other than that everything is basically the same.

V2500 has 1920 x 1080 pixels with a contrast ratio of 1300:1
S3000 has 1366 x 768 pixels with a contrast ratio of 1600:1

So my questions would be which would be good for my uses and is pixels > ratio or is it the other way around. I have a very general understanding of pixels and ratio but not to the extent compared to AVS members. All help is greatly appreciated.

one probably should compare them side by side to see which one looks better with the same material.

For a 40 inch set I'd go with the s3000.

I am going with S3000. I think that with such new technologies as LCD newer models are usually better than older ones. I know it's only 768 against 1080i... Will see
