post #3481 of 5142
Hey guys, looking for some help here... hopefully can get it...

I currently have a 32-inch Sony LCD that is 4.5 years old now, and is way too small for my living room.

I'm looking to upgrade to at least a 46- to 55-inch TV.

My budget is $1,500 or so, can go higher if necessary.

My main want is great picture quality, of course 1080p/120hz.

I will be using this primarily for Bluray, Xbox 360, DirecTV all through my receiver.

A 3D TV is not needed, as I have cataracts in my left eye and have poor depth perception, but am aware the better TV models do have 3D support already.

I would like to stick with Sony, but will look at other brands. I would like to get away from Samsung due to me having a 30-inch CRT that went bad after three years about seven years ago.

I'm not sure if Samsung is more dependable now, or what, but like I said, I want the best possible picture quality from a 46-55 inch TV that I can get.

Please help me out!!!

Different type of tv but both in my price range of $1299 max then 9.75% tax.
Kind of hard when you can't see some of the sets you research. I can see the vizio but the toshiba best buy is only online. As you can see kind of new to this forum and asking question so if its in the wrong place please direct me. It's really confusing because each person has their on experience with the set. Ive read and read about different model numbers for hours and still unsure on what to settle on. On some to get a good deal you cant always see the picture.

Well yes Ill help with question. I bought a sharp 60" aquos and while the settings can take a bit it looks great.

We have been looking for over a month now, and still can not make a decision. Sorry this is going to be long winded, but I am so confused at this point!

A few years back we bought a Sony XBR3 (40") for way more than we ever really thought we would pay for a TV. It now has pixel damage We can not and will not spend almost $2k on another set, but we do not want too much of a down grade on quality from our 6 year old set.

We have about $700-$800 to spend, but would love to keep it to about $700.
Sports, sports, and more sports! Hockey, football, basketball, golf and more.
1080 is a must, and picture quality is more important than anything else. We keep our room pretty bright, and really do not want 3D. 36" would be the smallest, and really not what we want. 40"-46" is ideal. Sound quality is not a big deal, we have a Bose system, and we do not need a ton of inputs. I could care less is the TV is a smart tv. As a family we spend a lot of the day with the TV on, and we use Comcast HD boxes.

We have looked at a few refurbished Sony EX and BX (but have not heard the best things about them), and Samsung LN40D630. We have even thought about buying another XBR either used or refurbished. We are open to other TV's and any suggestions.

There are so many options and specs, so I guess the main thing we need to know is what should we care the most about. Refresh rate, contrast, something else? We really do not know what it all means so we do not know what to look for in a TV. Is it safe to look at used or refurbished TV's?

My last question is, knowing everything we just told you, what TV would you suggest for us?

Thank you!

1. Budget: I'd like to keep it about $1000, but it isn't a hard limit. I can be convinced to go a bit higher.

2. Seating Distance: 8-10 feet

3. Size/placement: It will be on a TV stand in front of a gas fireplace (never used, gas shut off). I have book shelves on both sides of the fireplace so I can reasonably fit a 46-50 inch HDTV in there without covering too much of the shelf space.

4. Uses and sources: Pretty much everything but online streaming. videogames, movies (blu-ray), TV. Cable box with HD via HDMI, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. 3 HDMI ports would be needed, minimum.

5. Room lighting. The room is usually lit and has off-white painted walls. Lighting is either by daylight through a patio door off to the right or a single CFL bulb off to the left. No lighting would be near the TV itself. Reflections from the patio door can be an issue if sitting off to the left a bit.


I was hoping to pick up a full array LED backlit TV this spring, but the prices don't seem to be coming down as much as I had hoped. I'm still using a CRT HDTV, so good black levels would be important (I understand I'll have to compromise here).
120 Hz would be preferred and I would prefer to avoid a 3D TV just for cost savings, but if a suitable TV does have 3D and 240Hz, I won't pass it up as I do generally like 3D.

I am not in any sort of hurry, and I'll probably take a month taking suggestions, so if any good deals pop up, I'll be glad to hear about them (providing the TV fits my requirements). Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestion, although, I think being a 3D TV and only 120 Hz would be a deal-breaker for me.

UN55D7000/8000 or KDL55HX820

They are all hoovering around the $2000 range but I do not know which performs better. I am somewhat of a Sony "fanboy" and love the styling of the HX820 alot more but from what I've heard the D8000 is unbeatable in this generation's LED TV (Minus the Sharp Elite).

So how close is the HX820 in overall performance (including 3D) to the D8000?

Thanks!

Looking to purchase a 46-47in LED/LCD TV

1. Budget: ~$1000

2. Seating distance: Seating positions vary from 10-15ft

3. Size/placement limitations: Set on a 46-47in TV, but there are no space or size limitations.

4. Uses and sources: Main uses will include HD Satellite (Dish Network ViP722k DVR) and BluRay. Xbox360 and internet streaming also, but less frequent. 120Hz is desired. 3D capability is not a must, but is fine if its a feature in a quality TV.

5. Room lighting: The set will be located in a living room which is illuminated by natural sunlight (never extremely bright, 3 windows to right and 1 behind the viewer) during the day and illuminated at night by 1-2 incandescent lamps located at the back of the room opposite the TV behind the viewers.

At the $1000 price point, which manufacturer offers the best picture quality? LG/Sony/Samsung

Is the LG Infinia 47LW5600 a decent choice?

Thanks for any help
post #3489 of 5142
I am looking for a 55-60in LED TV, I havent really narrowed it down because every set seems to have a lot of pluses and minuses. I love the passive 3d on the LG LED sets but I really like the styling and deep blacks on the Samsung D8000's. I want a TV big enough that it will encompass a large part of my field of view but not so large that I can see the space between pixels. I also need at least a .5" bezel at the top of the screen so that my center-speaker stand wont occupy screen real-estate.

1. Budget
Up to $2100, but less if I can help it (gotta save up for a 2014 OLED )

2. Seating distance
5 ft

3. Size/placement limitations
Maximum width of 60" and load of 140lbs on my furniture

4. Uses and sources
65% TV, 25% Movies, 10% Other Streaming content

5. Room lighting
A closable basement window to the left of the screen and a fairly bright kitchen light directly behind the seating area

post #3492 of 5142
Looking to replace our 37" LCD Panasonic in our living room. It'll need connections for blu-ray player, HD direct tv box, and an xbox 360. An extra HDMI would be nice for my PC or laptop to be able to hook up.

Budget- $1500 (i'd like to get the TV and wall mount for this budget)
sitting no more than 10' away
55"+ is fine. As I said it's going to be wall mounted so no limits there.
Direct TV HD, Blu-Ray w/5.1 surround sound, xbox 360, possible PC/Laptop.
Lighting isn't a real concern. 2 large windows and many other lighting sources in the room.

Plus my wife gets somewhat motion sickness/headaches from games and movies. I was thinking a higher refresh rate so the picture is smoother would be best 240 mhz maybe?

Hi All
I would like to get a 50 inch TV for my sister on her 50th birthday. She want an LCD but all my research has been confined to a plasma that she is not interested in. I have less than 24 hours to help her choose an LCD, so any last minute suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Sony kdl55ex720 or Samsung 55D6000?

I purchased the Samsung from Sears as a black Friday deal for about $1100. The picture isn't great, but the real issue is motion control--some shows are unwatchable regardless of auto-motion setting.

Now i need to choose whether i should return this for a new version of the same tv and hope the issues are a defect, or upgrade to the $1600 Sony set.

Basically, i want a great picture that i don't have to adjust or play with. (My Hitachi LCD from six years ago has a better picture than my new samsung, i just needed a larger set because seated farther away now.

I don't see myself using the 3D in the sony that much, but if the 2D is better i'm fine with the upgrade. I just hate the blurred/stuttered fast motion picture i've been seeing.

Sorry if this is too vague or in the wrong place, but thought i'd see if anyone had any thoughts.

Thanks!

My answers to the questions above:
1. Budget (Prefer to stay at $1100, but fine going up if it makes a difference)
2. Seating distance (14 feet or so--sticking with the 55 inch tv)
3. Size/placement limitations (none)
4. Uses and sources (HDTV, Movies, Sports--all from Comcast)
5. Room lighting (No glare issues during day, dimly lit at night)
post #3495 of 5142
1. Budget: I'd like to keep it at about 3k or less

2. Seating Distance: 12-15 ft

3. Size/placement: It will be on a nice wooden stained stand I made... components will go underneath, and I will have some Polk floor standing speakers next to it

4. Uses and sources: HD DirectTV Box via HDMI, Sony PS3 via HDMI, Xbox 360 via HDMI, Nintendo Wii, HTPC. Will watch movies, sports (big sports nut), music, video gaming obviously.

5. Room lighting. Two florescents which I am taking out. I have a dark curtain that blocks sunlight during the day, but for the most part, no sunlight or reflections on the TV.


I am torn if I really want a 3d ready TV. I know I do want a LED and 120Hz no doubt about it... I really am undecided on how I want to go....

I wont be purchasing it for about 1.5-2 months... I am finishing the basement now, but want to have a budget obviously so when I buy I am ready to pull the trigger

Thanks fellas

post #3497 of 5142
1. Budget
$1500-$2400. I know there's kind of a range there, basically if I can get a really good TV for $1500, great. But I'm willing to spend a little more if I have to.

2. Seating distance
About 10 feet

3. Size/placement limitations
55'-60' inches. Will be on a stand.

4. Uses and sources
. I'll be using it for regular TV (xfinity), movies (blu-ray, sports (hockey, football) and some gaming.

5. Room lighting
There's a light on the ceiling between the seating area and where the TV will be. Couple of windows behind the TV with curtains over them.

OK ,jumping on the bandwagon....

Currently we have a 42" phillips.and wanting to upgrade

Budget : $1200.00

seating : 3 - 12 ft

Usage : basically Blu ray, Tv, xbox

room : light

Basically want something bigger .maybe 46" or even up to a 50"..then again even thinking 50 would be a little too big
3D ? not really bothered considering most of the seating is situated along the walls of the room, no seating Directly in front of the TV due to the kinect.
Also the misses want to get a LED
,,
Thinking this may be the one to get : Samsung UN46D6000. I've read that the only difference between this and the Samsung UN46D6300 is the 3D aspect.

Thanks for the help

i been looking getting a 27in lcd PC monitor. is LED better than CCFL?
I am trying to stay under $300 and i am eyeing 2 models

I would pay $270 for this one. It has 16:10 ratio and has 1920 x 1200 resolution...plus its 27.5.....no LED backlight
Hanns-G HZ281HPB 27.5'' 3ms Full HD 1080P HDMI WideScreen LCD Monitor

I saw this one today for only $250 with the promo discount. the 5 ms G2G is a bit of a concern. it is LED backlight
Acer H274HLBMID Black 27" 5ms Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor

yes, the led backlight Acer is just $250 compared to the CCFL for $270....but i dont mind paying the $20 more for a slightly bigger display and the higher aspect ratio and resolution.

My issue is the backlight....i dont care about power consumption. I just want the better of the 2 choices.

thanks!

EDIT: Considering the Sony KDL40EX720 and the Samsung UN40D6400 strongly. Any help choosing between them or other ideas?

Size: 40"
Refresh: 120 Hz
Budget: < $1000 street
Apps: Highly desired but not 100% essential onboard the TV (using BluRay player or Apple TV)
WiFi: Not really needed, but nice
Other: Desire LED, superthin because of placement
Viewing distance: 8'
Usage: Home office - Netflix, BluRay, light Xbox, and light PC display (photo viewing etc)

I'm putting a 40" LCD in my newly remodeled room that serves as home office. I'd like to use it mainly for streaming Netflix, occasionally for BluRay, and also I have the room wired so that it can also act as one of the displays for my PC (intend to have an ATI card that can support more than just two, or just to use it to mirror a display so I can show photos and such to someone else in the room...I won't be close enough to use it to actively work on it).

I was looking at the Samsung UN40D6000 mainly because I bought a Sammy 55" a coupe years back and figured I'd look at them again.

The room is wired like a datacenter now, including Cat5e to the wall mount for the TV. I don't need WiFi but it's a nice futureproof feature.

Apps aren't 100% essential since I'll be hooking up a BluRay Player that can do it, but it would be pretty nice to have the option right on the TV without going through another unit.

It's likely I'll use it for some light xBox once in a while when I'm not on my PJ.

I was set on just picking one up, but then I happened to see a Sony KDL46729 46" sitting next to it, and especially when they were Modern Warefare gamign being shown on it, the picture looked like it had more pop.

Are those Samsung units good for their price (they're not exactly cheap for a 40") or is Sony or another brand king of picture quality at the moment?

Feeling like I'd better ask and do my homework, especially since I'm going to buy another 40" for my Dad soon...maybe the same one.
post #3501 of 5142
Thanks for this thread. A lot of good info and questions to ask yourself before just asking too broad a question. i.e. What TV should I get?
post #3502 of 5142
I wish there was a search engine that could handle the multiple values discussed here and spit out a list... because I am sure there is a similar question already, but here does:

1. Budget = $1500 street/so up to $2500 retail
2. Seating distance = 9 to 10 feet
3. Size/placement limitations = 55 inch diag is the largest I can fit. I won't feel bad going for a higher quality but smaller (50 inch ish) screen.
4. Uses and sources = HD tv programming, some HD movies.
5. Room lighting = several windows and always a room light or two on in the evenings. Matt or non reflective screen a must. I have a separate, dedicated bat cave. This TV is for the living room.
6. Tech requirements = local dimming with excellent black levels are worth paying more for, or going for a smaller size, for, for me. Ability to calibrate to rec 709 a strong plus.
7. 3D = would be nice but not a deal breaker; passive might be preferable, but not a deal breaker.
8. Wide angle of view, IPS or the like = definitely a nice to have feature. The TV sits on the wall, about two feet above eye level (i know, that's not ideal, but it's a multi-use living room).
9. Smart TV features = all other things being equal, if it has Netflix, that's great, but I wouldn't pay more than $100 premium for even the smartest TV.

And while I know this is the LCD thread, if someone wants to tell me there's a plasma that meets all these criteria, I'm definitely open to that. Screen glare on plasmas has definitely scared me off, for this room, since I have a bright window to the side and behind the seating position.

Reference: We currently have a first gen (kid you not) Vizio LCD 37 inch in this room, so it's really time for a change.
post #3503 of 5142
We need a 46" model and our criteria is simple. We want the best LCD HDTV we can get. Normally I'd just buy a top of the line Sony, which I think right now is the HX929, but I've been seeing many folks recommending Samsung.

Any thoughts on how the top of the line Sony would compare to the top of the line Samsung? I'm personally still biased towards Sony, but I'm open to suggestions. Any glaring reason not to get the HX929?

Any advice greatly appreciated. We gave away our bedroom TV today, so we are in a bit of a time crunch.

Wow...I have the EXACT same list of requirements! My old Aquos just started showing a vertical black line on gray backgrounds. I have the same issue with it being in a room with alot of Windows. Not sure if Plasmas have a coating to stop the glare enough. I'm off to Best Buy today to take a look. There are so many options!

I'll be curious to know what you think of the current offerings.

Bang for buck and overall quality still goes to plasma, from what I can see, though for twice the price, some LCDs are getting close. If I could find a plasma I feel is of top quality and no glare, that would be great.

But I'm not sure that exists.

Of course, some of the higher contrast LCDs now have a lot of glare, so there's a potential gotcha, there, too.
post #3506 of 5142
So I need a new tv for my living room. This living room has floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides (california living has a few, minor drawbacks) and as such is subjected to pretty intense lighting throughout the day. We sit 10 feet away. We watch HDTV, and I game (x360 and OnLive)

The TV must fit inside a 44.75 by 29.5 enclosure that's built in to the wall.
I will not take a dremel to any tv i purchase (this time.) (OK, maybe if it's like a 16th of an inch I'd try. You know I would.) THe enclosure has already been dremeled to that dimension.

Budget - under 1000 us dollars, because it doesn't seem like more than that gets me anything i need or want. That, and i can get the lw5600 for 899, and it seems pretty good.

Smartness- The Internets on my TV seem pretty cool, but I have apple tv and google tv so i don't really need it.

3D- To me 3D==ocular assault, so my goal with 3d is one that stays completely out of my way and doesnt' affect the 2d picture. Assault was not the first word I typed, but this is a family forum.

Biggest Concern: Input lag. I game. I've seen scary things about the input lag on this machine. So this is really where I'm looking for improvement.

Picture Quality - I wish I could say I was good at figuring out flaws in gamma or beta or omicron, but I am myopic with poor color sensitivity and minor night blindness, so I really don't care so much. I know, I know, cringe, gasp, snurk, whathaveyou. Commence flogging. Where is a national videophobe eugenics program when you need it.

Really, I'm not sure what I should give up to get a good input lag machine for a better price.

Help me, dear community!

Checked out Best Buy and Costco. The images all looked pretty good at BB, but the signal they used in Costo made every TV look terrible.

Costco had a pretty good deal on a Sony BRAVIA KDL55EX621 (Which is like the 620 here http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HYG9WS). It's a 2 year old model though. There is a newer model NX720 that is not much more (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QXJJIG).

I've heard some pretty good things about the Samsungs like UN55D8000. It looked pretty sharp in BB and the viewing angle was good. It seemed to have a bit more glare than my current set. It's a bit pricier though (http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN55D8...dp/B004N866SU/).

I didn't get to see the LG Infinia 55LW5600, but it is pretty cheap and gets good reviews on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/LG-Infinia-55L...dp/B004OOVIHW/).

So I don't really feel closer to a decision. I guess I'll keep reading reviews online.
post #3508 of 5142

Costco had a pretty good deal on a Sony BRAVIA KDL55EX621 (Which is like the 620 here http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004HYG9WS). It's a 2 year old model though. There is a newer model NX720 that is not much more (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004QXJJIG).

I've heard some pretty good things about the Samsungs like UN55D8000. It looked pretty sharp in BB and the viewing angle was good. It seemed to have a bit more glare than my current set. It's a bit pricier though (http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN55D8...dp/B004N866SU/).

I didn't get to see the LG Infinia 55LW5600, but it is pretty cheap and gets good reviews on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/LG-Infinia-55L...dp/B004OOVIHW/).

So I don't really feel closer to a decision. I guess I'll keep reading reviews online.

Thanks for the update. I feel your pain.

Looking for a 60'' LED/LCD.

I'll be sitting 10 to 12 feet away.

My budget preferably 2000 or less.

3D would be nice but not a must.

Uses: HDTV with comcast. Blu Ray via PS3 and some gaming via PS3
