Let me say it's been awhile since I've bought a TV for the Master Bedroom and the last one I bought was a Sony KDS-R50XBR1. Even back then it was getting harder to find televisions with "wake-up" alarms and visiting the big box stores to see what's now available has been unsuccessful.

I'm basically a Sony fan, I do like Samsung screens, I'm partial towards LCD's, would like something in the 50-60" range, but at this point I'll take almost anything with a decent screen.

Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

The Panasonic Plasmas have several On/Off timers that you can set to turn the TV on. You can set one for say 5am Mon-Fri, then set one for 7am on Sat, and set one for 9am on Sun. You can also set one to turn the TV off at night if you tend to fall asleep with it on. The most popular Panasonic is the ST60 series and is available in 50", 55", and 60" (as is the lower-end S60 series).

I don't know if the Samsung plasmas have timers like this.
