Recommendations - 40" LCD HDTV with QAM  

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Looking for a 40/42" LCD HDTV for my parents. Doesn't have to 1080p - I don't think they'd really use it. Would like one with a QAM tuner so they can pick up their local unencrypted HD stations (they have basic cable). Preferred price - at/under $1500.

I've spent all last night combing through the thread here to try and help me figure out what to go for. Originally I was thinking of the Samsung LNS4041 or LNS4051, but then I found out that these (and most Samsungs) do not have a QAM tuner. Then I started looking at the Aquos & Bravia S, but they're a little more expensive then I'd like. The other option is the Sceptre or Philips 42" at Costco, however, I'm not a big fan of the external tuner box and I'm not sure how good the Philips is.

From what I've read, Samsung seems to make pretty good LCDs, it's just a bummer that hardly any of them have a QAM.

Ultimately, I'll probably go into Best Buy or Circuit City to take a look and see which one looks better before I make a final call. Can anyone offer suggestions on which sets to look at?
