All I am concerned with is the picture quality and it not showing pixelation when watching sports.
I appreciate any advice or specific tv endorsements.
If you're looking for an LCD I would say that the 240Hz interpolation is useless. And if you're looking for 240Hz based LCD then it's going to always have Smart/3D functionality. That being said, for your price range, if you're concerned about PQ, looking for the TV to hold its motion resolution in tact, and good bang for the buck, I'd ask why you're not looking at plasma.
There's only a handful of TV's that fit your price range and have the 240Hz spec, and even fewer that meet your expectation of "really great picture." The Sony HX750 comes in a 46" size and uses the 240Hz interpolation and sits right at $1097, however it's an average performer at best and definitely doesn't justify it's high price tag. The 46LE835U also meets the wanted 240Hz, is $1099 but again doesn't justify the higher price tag, at least IMO.
What I would suggest is either look at plasma TV's, or if you wanna keep with the LED/LCD's then don't look at the FP's with 240Hz because its useless anyways. Look at some FP's with just 120Hz rather.
Then I'd consider the Samsung EH6000 series, which is a full array LED/LCD, 120Hz, No Smart/3D. The Sharp LE640 model, LED/LCD with Smart functionality. The Toshiba L5200 model, which is another edge lit LED/LCD, No Smart/3D. The Sony EX645 model, yet another edge lit LED/LCD, Smart functionality, no 3D.
All of those TV's are pretty solid performers for the dollar, and are much more justifiably priced.
