looking for good hdtv 50"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey, my parents are going to buy a new hdtv this weekend cause of a deal circuit city is having and they have asked me to do the research but im still fairly confused bout some things. I was really hoping some of u guys could really help me out here. What would you recommend that meets these specs:

1. hd
2. widescreen
3. 50" maybe a lil bigger
4. lcd, plasma, or dlp?
5. will be used for home theatre and everyday tv both hd and regular
6. price around $3000 but thats secondary to get a good set up
7. Atleast 1080i, like 1080p if its in the price range

okay if your going 50 inch.. dont go lcd.. go plasma lcd are better when they are smaller then like 37 or smaller.. if ya go 40 or bigger plasma is the way to do it.. avoid the dlp becuase those are rear projections and the lcd or plamsa will look better.. as far as the choices.. well you got to let us know what they have in stock we can recomend tvs all day long but if they dont carrie them it wont do ya any good.. as for 1080p sure that would be nice to have but at this point isnt needed.. i dont know of any channles that broadcast at 1080p now or will be in the near futur get a nice wide screen plasma something that supports hdcp with the features you need.. make sure it has a good seek time you dont want any ghosting while watching tv thats about the best advice i can give ya.. if you guys have that kind of cash to spend id ditch circuit city and goto best buy that has the magnolia center in it.. youll do better with that cash

thank you very much, i have heard some good things bout buying hdtv from best buy but the reason my parents finally decided to by one was cause circuit city is having a deal on friday on tv $299 and up where u dont gotta pay till 2008 or something like that. I have noticed that what they have in stock might be a problem, i read some good things bout some Pioneer plasma tv's but i then checked circuit city site and they dont carry that brand. I have also heard good things bout Panasonic which they do have so if anyone has experience with them i would be very interested. whats hdcp?

1080p .... I would suggest a Sony 50a2000. Its a RPLCD and is freaking awesome looking. I have the 720p version and right now they are the best bang for the buck pq wise.
