Hey Guys,

first of all I'm not sure if I am on the correct category, if not I'd ask a mod to move it.


Ok.. I'm looking for a big tv. More than 50". I know that that from the point of view of the quality a 40" with 1080p will be better since the resolution is tha same so on a bigger size bigger at the pixels... Ok.. besides that as the girls denied on public but affirm with their friend.... the size matters jajajaja.....

well I'm moved to a new appartment... and I'd love to have a big tv....


Talking about technology, after reading a lot i think I would go with a Plasma... since basically I will use it for sports, console games, and may be for some movies.


I was checking also some Led LCD... but I think they are pretty expensive and not sure if I should go with them.

Also, I have a friend who has one feature pretty cool on his tv: PIP so he can divide it in parts and watch in the case of basketball games 2 at the same time... don't know.. it's cool but I', not sure how many time I'll use it..


ok, my idea budget will be no more than 1000, but I could extended it up to 1300...



thanks in advance for all your answers..

A 50+ inch at under $1300 will pretty much have to be a plasma.


You might want to talk to Cleveland Plasma, one of the board sponsors.

Yup, a plasma is in your future....


Seriously, the price/value equation favors plasma at the moment. the High end LED LCDs are VERY pricey, more then they are worth in my estimation.

You could also look into the mid-tier 120 Hz 52" LCDs by sharp and toshiba ... they offer pretty decent picture quality for a low price, can easily find one around 1000 these days ... the only thing is that u will need to sacrifice a little bit on black levels .. however if u are decided on buying a plasma, buying one in this range should not be a problem as well .. look at the S and G series by panasonic and the series 6 plasma's by samsung.

I agree that LED LCD's are very pricey but the best price to value can be found in DLP. For under $1300 you could get a 65" mitsubishi dlp. Granted, it's not going to be the thin hang on the wall tv so if that's what you're looking for then plasma will be your best bet but the pic quality on the dlp is very comparable to a mid-level plasma in my opinion.

No offense, but Mitsubishi=junk. Go for a Panasonic plasma as first choice and second choice Sony LCD

I agree. Mitsubishi (along with Hitachi) made outstanding rear projection CRTs just a few years ago but the stuff they have now seems subpar. Big screen DLPs may look like a great value now but remember they have a lamp that needs to be replaced every couple years at $200-$300 a pop. And they usually don't last as long as they claim. Not to mention the viewing angles are as bad if not worse than a cheap LCD.


As far as PIP is concerned I don't know what, if any, new sets have this feature and I don't miss it. I had my first plasma for about 6 months before I realized it didn't have PIP.

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree. I own an 82837 and it is far from junk. I don't deny Panasonic plasmas as arguably having the best pic quality but I do think that for $1000-1500 less than the 65" panasonic I just bought an 82" screen and I'm quite happy with that. Now if the op is wanting to stay at 50" then my vote would certainly be for a plasma barring any glare issues his room might have.

The lamp is only $99 and depending on what your warranty is, the first bulb or two is included. Viewing angles are nowhere near as bad as they were in past years (vertical viewing angle is still tight but horizontally it's not bad at all). And I agree about PIP; it's a novelty I doubt you'll miss.

Best Buy is selling a toshiba 52" LCD for just under $1200:

If I had to pick up a TV today I might go with that one. it's very nice for the price.

Though I think you can do better by picking out a plasma for around the same price. I should note that Panasonic is coming out with their new sets within a month so the old models are currently on clearance. The new models should be very well priced compared to last years models as well.
