OK, here is my question...sorry for the 3 pointless post...


I am looking to get an HDTV that is right around the 40" mark, not interested in any bigger and def not any smaller. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. I hear nothing but good things about the Sharp Aquos so i was leaning towards that.

I want to know what would be the best one to get that will last longer and be great for console gaming/movies. And has great color and longevity.

Sharp Aquos 42" 1080p Flat-Panel LCD
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1186004971284
$1,799.99


Westinghouse 42" 1080p LCD
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1181831586462
$996.99

These are 2 that im interested. Could someone please point out why there is such a huge price difference in these 2 similar HDTVs?

also, are there any other similar HDTVs like these 2 that i should be looking at? The main question here is though...why is the aquos priced so much higher...and is it even worth that?

ya my only problem with the sonys are...they are hugely over priced in my opinion. So Sharp and Samsung huh...i'll have to try to look more into those. Which samsung model in around a 40" is comparative to the aquos i posted.

Another question, have plasma TVs gotten rid of the burn in problems they used to have? And also, i had a friend tell me that if u tilt a plasma TV more than 45 degrees its pretty much ruined...is that true?

I haven't heard the tilt problem...but plasma can get burn in, the sets run much much hotter than LCD's and are only marginally better, if at all, then LCD/s

I am not sure why anyone is currently buying Plasma.

it was in the warehouse and they were as you came in the front door. You need to be a member to buy form them and it's worth the cost. All electronics at costco have a 2 year warrenty, tv's,computers, ect. I think it still means you can return the unit to the warehaouse for a refund. Costco have a bunch of tv's including Sony you talked about and Panasonic, sumsung HTS starting at $299. I don't think you can beat Costco because they are bound to charge only 15% over cost on all there stuff. Panasonic 50+ size tv's are Plasma and i haven't seen a LCD over 42"
