This thread is like who has the best car. I would advise an informed consumer to check cnet ,flatpanel TV, Consumer Reports and other sources of rating TVS as a guide.
The St 50 from panasonic has an excellent review for the price from CNET.
So what TV gives you the best bang for your dollar??.
All brand name TVs are usually very good and some are better than others.
Three leading brands are :
Some people can not stand a Plasma TV while others prefer them so you as a consumer you have to decide what is important to you LED or Plasma .
You have to make an informed decisions based on a variety of paramaters..
Sound quality of the TV speakers
I have a Sony 60 inch ex720 while not perfect I find it very good and I am quite happy with it.
There will always be someone with a differing opinion. I have always found shopping for a TV to be a fun activity, it is one of things you enjoy buying as a consumer.
Good luck with your decision.
