    Default Big Screen TV

    I had a 52" Big Screen TV that just went out on me last week.

    So, i'm looking for a modern replacement. There are a lot of choices out there, and i think i've worked out what i'm looking for.

    A 720p LCD in the 46-52" range. But, i don't want to spend a lot.

    What do you guys think?

    I haven't tried Vizio, but my favorites are JVC and Panasonic. We have a Panasonic 42" plasma that really is a just fabulous.

    If you like video game consoles then I reccommend a TV that supports up to 1080P. Another thing to consider is the amount and types of input and output ports on the TV you will require for your current and future devices you plan to use with it.

    I like my 37" LCD a lot, but if cost is a factor you might look at some of the DLP models. While they are not quite as good as the PCD/Plasma televisions, the quality is still quite good and they cost less.

    one prb u may see with the tv i told you about is theres no Dvi input and it says max comp res is 1366 by whatever but i hooked my computer up to it through hdmi and i have it at 1080p. WOw stalker kicks ass on that tv its so amazing. I think its worth the money. BUt the best deal is on the costco website a Sceptre 42inch 1080p monitor has dvi in i heard its great for gaming and its only 1,300

    Just to give an update, i got the http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889234003 from techonweb.com

    I don't care for the company i bought it from, (tech on web), they were slow to ship and asked a lot of questions about my credit card, they said security... i'll be keeping an eye on it.
