I'm looking for an LCD tv for my bedroom.


I have a 41.5" wall area that I'm looking to put it on (the tv should really probably be at most ~ 36" wide thus leaving some space on either side so it doesn't look too filled up).


Viewing distance is ~ 15 feet.


I have a DirectTV tivo (svideo) that I'm looking to hook up to it for now. Probably also want to have the ability to hook up a DVD player (dvi or progressive). Down the line I may want to hook up a HTPC to it as well so should have the flexibility to do some pixel perfect mapping type stuff.


Price is important. Need to come in under $ 1000.


I've been looking at 27" and 32" Sceptre, Syntax, and Maxent TVs so far.


Any recommendations?


thanks!

If you viewing from 15ft you need to go bigger. You almost might just go for a 42" PLasma. If you want LCD then get a 37" LCD. I know Fry's Electronics has Syntax 37 LCD for 1500 on special alot. Now you from seattle so i don't think you got a Fry's But if frys can go that low you can haggle another place. But i would recommend a 42" Plasma from a good company over a big LCD.

On a recent trip to Circuit City I saw some decent looking Magnavox's in your price range. Tosh and Panny are excellent but will set you back a couple more Franklins. Sony and Mitsu are also excellent...but pricey. Good hunting.

There is a Frys just south of Seattle in Renton.


I saw a 32" Vizio at Costco in Tukwila right at your price limit. A pretty good picture; not as good as a Sharp or any of the 2X the cost LCDs, but good.


Good luck
