Yeah, I took a notice at the 26" ilo at Walmart, and thought that RCA, Sanyo, and Polaroid even blew away Wal-Mart's own exclusive brand. However, I must say, for the PQ, price, and longevity, and the bells and whistles, I would choose Polaroid over some of the others as far as budget brands. There was a time when the RCA 26" looked great, but now they're nothing.
My personal purchase would be the 26" Samsung from Wal-Mart, maybe that 3000:1 contrast ratio got my attention. Can't explain that one (unless that was Samsung's Dynamic Contrast Ratio). Does anyone know what the TRUE contrast ratio is for Sammy-boy? That 3000:1 or 4000:1 sounds more dynamic than pure.
