You can do 52 inches with 1080p for $1300 or 50" with 720p for $899. 50" with 1080 will probably run you $999.

Browse slickdeals.net forums for the absolute best price. I check that site before I buy anything.

$1200 shipped for a refurb

yes, and ill get a smaller tv if i have to sacrifice for quality, but id like the biggest i can get for what i can pay. Also, im not sure of all the specs that i should be worrying about, like i know i need atleast a 120hz, but what about the contrast ratio and all the other stuff they say?

The TV I bought was a 50" Samsung PN50A450 720p for $965 with tax and 2 year warranty, brand new. That's the best TV under a grand for the money IMO.

if you are further than 7 ft away there is literally no difference between 720p and 1080p on a 50" screen. don't fall victim to all that marketing hype. even if you are closer than 7 ft, a quality 720 kills a mediocre 1080 all day long.

yeah i'd rather pay an extra $500-700 for little to no increase in performance just cause it has a fancy "xbr" logo on it

i've got a situation where this isnt true.....

720 can just be a regular HD movie, or you're local HD cable...
1080P on a blueray disc is going to look MUCH better than you're 720P Cable or HD movie... my buddy has a 65" 1080 TV and I can tell the diff. in both scenarios
