    help me pick out my first HD TV!!

    alright well i just got an xbox 360 elite
    and i am looking for a nice flat panel HD TV to go on my desk at school this upcoming semester to compliment the 360 and for gaming

    i want to keep the price in the $500-600 dollar range
    that should be me around 19" for a good brand and maybe upwards of 26" for an off- name brand if im guessing right


    what are your guys suggestions?

    The chances you can beat any of those deals are about zero. I have a Philips 37in LCD and its one of the better looking HDTV's I've seen, looks much better than friends Sony and destroys the Olevia, I paid about 800 for it a year ago from that site. There is one on there now for 570 something with free shipping, and it can display 1080i, its obviously just not natively that resolution, but few tv's are right now (at least near your budget).

    360 can do 1080p in games. A patch released in the Fall allows this. One game that I know runs in 1080p is Guitar HeroII.

    Go to circuit city or best buy and shop open box...best suggestion I can give. Ask if they have anything in their OB report that needs to go that there willing to kick out the door...

    Re: help me pick out my first HD TV!!

    i was in your shoes 2 weeks ago, i was looking for a 32" LCD for 600-700$

    i ended up looking around at best buy and a few places and went to sam's club and they had a vizio 32" for 599 and 37" for 799, reviews looked pretty good on if for budget tv

    but i ended up getting the phillips sitting right beside it for 740$, havnt been dissapointed in it yet works very well for the 360 gears of war and guitar hero...and forza 2
    http://www.samsclub.com/shopping/nav...=5&item=361889 mine is silver though, and i liked that it has a swiveling base so you can turn the tv easy and such to hook up the xbox easier...?

    i find myself watching discovery hd theater just because it looks good, im used to my old 27" crt...FTL
