Well, me and the woman are looking to upgrade to a flat-screen Plasma or LCD. I don't know much about them but from my understanding the plasma's tend to be better at bringing out the color while the lcd's are better for the sharpness/ clearer picture ect... We went to Best Buy today and the plasma's seem to be cheaper and they don't look bad at all so we are leaning more towards that route unless there is a big flaw or something when it comes to the plasma tv's. So what I need from you guys is your experience with either a plasma or lcd, which you like better, what brands are decent and fair priced, ect... We are looking to get at the very least a 37 inch, 40 inch is ok, 42 inch would be ideal, and 52 inch would be the biggest we would like to go but are trying to stay away from strictly because of cost. We would be perfectly happy with a 42 incher but if you guys know of any 50 + inch flat screens that are decent quality and are around the same price as some 40 inchers, by all means link me to them. Also, we are not looking for the best shit out there. Basically looking for the best bang for your buck TV. I've never watched anything in HDTV so I don't know if it is worth it or not? is it? My girlfriend is very simple and she see's HDTV as somewhat pointless since she is perfectly fine watching TV and movies the way they are now. So any and all info is welcome. Oh and our budget is around $2000. So let me know what's up guys... Please no arguing. You can state your opinion so we can all learn more but keep the bashing of someone's preference and the biased comments out of my thread. Thanks.
