    New TV

    Alright, so I guess I'm looking to blow some money. SO, the next thing that need for my system is a new TV. I don't know much about them. So, I guess I'm looking for something with a super awesome picture, something around 42in and flat screen. So, let me know what you guys think..

    Re: New TV

    I ended up getting a last-year Hitachi LCD model for good and cheap. But not because of the price...

    I spent nearly an hour trying to tweak a Samsung unit on one side and a Sony on the other. No matter what I did, I just couldn't duplicate the picture quality of the Hitachi sitting between them.

    I was sold.

    Re: New TV

    I think I just need to go out shopping and see what pictures I like. I was looking at some Pioneer Elite but don't know if I can justify that much money for something I don't really use that much. My big thing in wanting to get rid of my current TV is that it makes too much noise when it's on and it bothers me listening to music....

    HP plasmas are 2nd in quality only to philips, and they're really reasonably priced.

    The picture is astounding for a plasma, which aren't my favorite, but you did say you wanted a flatscreen.

    Re: New TV

    And some sort of warranty plan.

    Broken pixels for LCD's, and burn-in for plasmas are scary stuff.

    Re: New TV

    This may sound stupid, but insist on watching something low-key like standard cable, even take a VHS tape with you. The shops are always showing things off with the highest, best definition, but for the most part, you won't be watching everything in HD anyway. Its always good to see how well a TV reacts at lower resolution.
