Suggestion needed, before my in-laws screw this up!
Flat screen solution for cable and DVD use.
It's a second floor great-room at the beach, *rental property*, free standing on a corner cabinet, typical viewing distance 8-12 feet. Room can get quite bright during the day.
Need integrated good 2-channel audio, no surround config or AV receiver planned.
I prefer to spend extra for good quality that lasts, but, again, this is rental property so you know what can happen. Nonetheless, I don't want broken buttons and a washed-out screen in 3 years. Don't need anything too big, but I just don't know the relative quality-to-price of today's brands. (I'm still watching my 2003 42" Panny commercial plasma quite happily, still bright w/ good blacks).
AVS is my idea place - any help appreciated! Thanks!
