Buying my first TV so a little help is needed.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
1. Budget
I'm willing to spend around 900€ = 1 130$

2. Seating distance
From 9' to 11'.

3. Size/placement limitations
I have no placment limitations. Looking at 46" to 48".

4. Uses and sources
The only device that will be connected to TV is my PC (trough HDMI). I will be using my TV only for watching movies and series. I will not watch sports, won't play games or to be more exact i will not connect my TV with cable TV or inernet TV.

I will mainly be watching HD material (Full Blu-Rays, 1080p encodes). I watch SD material (DVD9 sources) only when series/movies don't exist in HD.

HD - 70%
SD - 30%

5. Room lighting
I would say "almost dark". There is no bias lighting.

6. Important factors:
- Very important to me is 1080p/24 or 24p compatibility!
- Best PQ possiable.
- Preferably i would like to have LCD Full LED (if possible).

- I don't care about 3D so this is an important factor.
- Since i'm from Europe i can't use and don't need "Internet streaming services" like Netflix and Hulu.
- I also don't need services like Pandora, Rhapsody, Picasa, Flickr, access to Facebook, Twitter, and even Skype.

Best PQ possible you won't get for that kind of money.

Best LCd's PQ wise are the Full Array Local Dimming LED LCd's, they cost lots of money. Plasma has simular kind of PQ for half the price. Consencus is that Plasma give's the best movie'ish experience. This year's Panasonic Plasma's are well received. I own a LED and enjoy my movies never the less

I would go for a 50inch, you have to keep in mind that black bar movies will shrink your screen. The bigger your screen the better the experience. Buy the biggest screen you can handle

Recent VE Shootout winner was 65VT50 Plasma, second was the Elite Pro 60X5FD full array Local Dimming LCd (not for sale in Europe) which is twice as expensive...

not all LED are equal

@8mile13: Thank you for your quick reply.

I meant best PQ for 900€. I think that i can't buy 50inch LCD LED TV for 900€ (they are more expensive). I don't want to buy plasma because our familys plasma did have "burn-in probleme". I my previous post i made a mistake. I will not play games on my TV so i don't need gaming TV.

So 8mile13 wich LCD LED TV would you recommend?

+ Sony 46HX720 <^^ are Edge Lit.


When you buy a Edge Lit you will see imperfections most in a dark environment so if i was you i would check the TV out in a dark environment (dark scenes!) soon after you bought it and see if you can live with it, if not return it and consider more expensive Sharp (full array without Local Dimming) or Plasma - modern Plasma's have temporary burn-in, not something to worry much about, should prevent torch mode and static screen. good luck!

Full array is not going to happen at your price point even if you could find something in your size...your best bet is to look for an NX720. Good display and they have been out long enough to find one discounted. Keep an eye on slickdeals.

The EH6000 series doesn't use edge lighting, so it reportedly has none of the flashlighting effects, and the sets are thicker than the ultra-thin ES models that use LED edge lighting.
Reports are that the new ES models are superior to last year's D series with regards to effects like flashlighting too.

Aim a bit higher than you are willing to spend then wait till prices drops
