I've been looking around for a bit now but as usually happens, I'm just more torn then ever before.


I would really like a 37" because of the stand I have, but I know that limits the quality of sets quite a bit. 40" is probably about as big as I can go.


Will be mostly for SD for now (some movies and Wii), soon to HD though, so I would like 1080p.


I'd like to keep it under $2k.


I've looked at the LG LB5D and that looks nice. I haven't seen the XBR5 but I hear that is a very good one.


Viewing distance is 6-8 feet or so.


Light control is good enough, so that shouldn't be a problem. Suggestions? Thanks.

i dont think you should limit your set to only 40 inches because of your stand, you could bu a new stand and a 46 inch set at your price range.

Here's my problem. For some reason unknown to mankind, my builder put a designated spot for the tv by "digging out" a hole in the wall. It's fairly common, at least around here, for some reason. I had a custom wall unit built into it so it looks nice (it was obviously fit to my tv at the time).


I have ~38" wide without removing either of the side panels (basically they hide cables, the Wii, etc...). Now, I could remove one/both of those and add another 6" per side, for upto nearly a 50" (about 1/16" short of a full 50).


I guess I'd be willing to do that if I found the right tv for a great price. Thanks for the suggestions.

just curious, just because this 'builder' said that that spot was 'designated' for a tv doesnt mean u absolutely have to use it, does it? or is it a city /county/state building-code sort of thing?

unless im missing something i would put the tv whereever the heck i wanted to put it.
