I like saturation though :/ Least I like contrast. I currently have color, contrast, and sharpness on max set on my HDTV and it looks amazing compared to my computer monitor. Least for gaming the colors pop and the details stick out with sharpness turned up.

The saturation is great for watching pixar and dreamworks animated movies, but not for BF3, MW3, Skyrim, and more (this is not the right word so please forgive me) bleak games. If you are playing games like lollipop chainsaw, or more cartoonist style games, then yes saturation is what you want.

and millisecond response rate on tv's is even more irrelevant than it is on monitors. so is contrast ratio. look for something that can dimm individual led bulbs and is at least 120hz

If you're going to shell out $900 for a tv spend a few extra $'s and get a truly superb one. or do this again in 2 years

No need to get so worked up, I didn't mean anything by that. Of course I know that's where the industry is headed but as I said it's pointless to me. Ill always keep it at 60hz to reduce lag and 120 isn't that much better in my opinion. 3D is not even a option, no point at all. Ill buy a 3D tv when they become as standard as a $200 LCD 720p HDTV everybody has and when console games really start making good use of the tech. Internet connectable is worthless as well since I connect my desktop right to it and pull up anything I want to view right there. I have found a few good 55"s without the stuff but I was just looking for some more links if possible. The few I found had a lot of money shaved off since it was just the tv itself, I wanna find more like the 2 I found if anyone can link some. But as I said I can do 120hz and stuff. 3D is a no no since not all TV's come with that. Internet is whatever as well. It doesn't HAVE to be 60hz only etc. But 3D and internet I see on and off a lot so none for me thanks.

To his and her their own. I play BF3, Halo, and Skyrim with the same settings. My TV doesn't have a setting for saturation but I assume that is just the "Color" setting. I think it looks a whole lot better on full both more animated-esc styles and realistic scenes. It's different on my monitor so I understand what you are saying. My monitor looks terrible with saturation, sharpness, & contrast on full. It's just certain HDTV's really do look a lot lot lot better with the right configuration. I went to a 16 person LAN xbox lan party and people kept asking how I got my TV to look so good and ended up configuring all of theirs with close to similar settings. They were all different so of course it wasn't set to max, rinse, repeat but everyone was very happy with the results.

Thread starting to digress a little. Just looking for links to good HDTV's. If not that's cool thanks anyways people.

It may be a bit out of your budget, but consider this:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00752R9SW/ref=aw_d_var_2nd_electronics_txt?qid=1345436896&sr=1-9&vs=1

It's IPS, 55", $1200, and the best panel you can buy without having garbage '3D' thrown in. I have the 42" version and I love it - especially on my Xbox 360. We'll be getting at least one more soon. The 47" is easily the best deal and it's well under your budget.

EDIT: Please don't buy that garbage you linked from WalMart. Budget shopping is understandable, but if you get that you WILL be disappointed. Not much point wasting such a large amount if cash. You're much better off getting the 47" version if the Viera linked above. It's far better, and if you have to sacrifice a bit of screenspace to get a decent panel, it's a worthy trade off. They're the same resolution, and if you're coming from a 32", a 47" is still a drastic size increase.

A mid-high end Panasonic (VT/GT/ST) or Samsung Plasma (Series 5-8) destroy all but the high end LCD's in terms of image quality and motion performance. The only advantages of LCD's are the higher brightness for bright room viewing, thinner bezels, power consumption and lack of any burn-in risk. LED TV's are LCD's with LED back-lighting.

LCD TV's with hz>60hz use motion interpolation and scanning back-lights (depending on the model) to improve motion performance. If you hook one up to a PC the max refresh rate is still 60hz and when Vsync is enabled the max FPS you will get is 60.

Samsung Series 5-6 plasmas can be found for around 800-900$ and typically have proper PC support (4:4:4 Chroma). Panasonic plasma's don't have proper PC support.

Last years Series 5 Plasma had proper PC support, this years should as well:

The E6500 does, I don't see why the others wouldn't:

Yea I wasn't planning on it. I'm sticking with brands I know well. I'm loyal to LG to be honest even though they have had a lot of hit or miss TV's but I didn't know if someone knew the brand and I was just out of the loop or something.

Ahh it's cool, no biggie. In fact depending on how this christmas (and birthday almost) goes I might get a Vizio 55" with all the stuff I said I didn't need. It's not ridiculous 600hz or anything but it has internet, 3D and other stuff but mainly cause it's only like $150 more than a other 55" that doesn't have all of that. And 4 pairs of 3D glasses free why the heck not when it's like $50 a pair almost. But again it all depends on my budget. Thanks for your help guys.

make sure you check out avsforum.com there is everything in the world you would want regarding your questions. First time I visited their forums... It was $3000 later and then two years later another $2500 lol. There is some serious setups, reviews, and opinions over there.
