I bet you guy's get tired of helping people decide all the time, but I have been out of the game for a while. My Mitsibushi 35 CRT TV finally died, so time for something new.

I don't game, or even watch that many movies. 15 feet viewing distance, but that may shorten up to 12' with mounting.

The three LCD models I'm so far interested in, (from Costco), is:


Vizio E480i-B2 $570

M4711-A2 $600

E550i-B2 $680 ( picture looked the best )


Oh, I watch a lot on my PC, so gotta have internet. Is 3mb DSL good enough? Oh, and all I have is OTA, and a Magnavox MDR513H/F7. and a Harmon Kardon AVR.


Thanks for the help.

E550i-B2 $680 ( picture looked the best ) answered your own question ! The 2014 E- series B0 ,B1,B2 Viseos are getting better reviews than the 2013 M series models .

3mbps DSL will sometimes get an 3000kbs Netflix or Amazon 720p stream

but that doesn't leave any overhead try to move up at least 1 tier

a 6 mbps connection will usually get you 1080p but not much overhead

Thanks for the information. I ended up making a completely different choice, and got a Samsung 51" Plasma. No frills, but amazing PQ.

I have a 2013 60" Sammie Plasma for the frt room and a new 40" Sony for my bedroom the Sony is decent the Sammie Plasma is excellent P.Q. a good choice in a light controlled room.
