~$1000 or less
2. Seating distance
Maybe 8-9', doesn't matter much since we know our size range.
3. Size/placement limitations
Picture quality, input lag, and all the other factors are more important to us than debating 46-47" vs. 50".
4. Uses and sources
-Gaming on Steam big picture via HDMI to PC
-Video files via HDMI to PC
-Basic cable via antenna
-Maybe a new gaming console in the future
5. Room lighting
Very bright room that has tons of windows.
-We're not too excited about 3D, but it would be nice to have for the future.
-Picture quality is very important to us.
-Low input lag is obviously important as gaming is the #1 use.
So far we're considering:
I'm not sure which of these would be best, or if there are others we should be considering. I've been avoiding Samsung and LG as it seems like their options in this size and price range aren't as good as Vizio and Sony, but that's just my impression, so tell me if I'm wrong. Please help, thanks!
Based on your requirements, I'd say the w802a hands down.
