Buying a New TV - Damn this economy, I wanted a 42 incher!
Yesterday, I went out to sears with my dad to buy a 42" LCD for the kids at our church (lucky little bastards). While there, I had to eventually just keep my jaw in my pocket after the number of times it dropped to the floor. Fuck, some of those tvs looked nice. That's when I decided that, in typical American fashion, I'm going to go out and buy something I can't afford!
I'm just not sure what to go for. My price limit is probably around $800 or so, though I'd rather not spend more than $600-$700. After reading up a little on LCDs, it seems like Samsung tvs are the absolute best (which seemed to be the case yesterday at Sears. Comparing Samsung with anything else was like night and day) but some sites are saying that Sony makes the best sets. I've also read that Sharp makes the best tv for gamers, but I'm not sure how accurate that is either.
I'll be using this tv primarily for playing my Wii and 360. While 1080p is preferable, I suppose 720p would be ok. Then again, I'm not sure if it'll really make a difference in the long run or not. I've been told that displays with 720p max resolution sometimes end up with a less than perfect picture. I'm looking at probably going for something around 32"
