This is my first post and after scanning the forums this seemed like the best place for this type of thread.
I am looking to purchase one of these three sets:
1. Sony KDL-52V100 (LCD)
2. Vizio VF550M (LCD)
3. Panasonic TC-54PS14 (Plasma)
The prices after considering deals, shipping and taxes are going to be roughly the same for all of these sets so no consideration from a price point just from quality and reliability.
I guess both the Panasonic and Sony are low end for their offering, I have heard the G10 series are much better than the S1 but this is all that is within my price range.
I am leaning towards the Sony since they are one of the better producers of LCD which I would like for low power consumption and glare issues. From what I can surmise this is a good option but wanted to get some feedback in this forum. I don't know enough about Vizio's offering to compare it to Sony and if I can get both for about the same price wouldn't I pick the Sony? Thoughts?
So even though the Panasonic Plasma might have the best picture (?) I am opting for either the Vizio or Sony on grounds of lower power consumption and glare issues and given how it is the lower end plasma and not the G10 series. But between the Vizio and the Sony I am not sure, the Vizio would be 55" and Sony only 52" but I don't know if that is reason enough to go with the Vizio. Please let me know your thoughts and items I should consider. I am told the W-series for the Sony would be much better than the V-series especially with the Bravia3 engine and the V-series having production issues but again the W-series like the Panasonic G10 is out of my price range. So if I had to pick between the low end offering from Panasonic and Sony plus Vizio for good measure what would be your advice.
Thanks in advance.
