Whats the best brand of HDTV? - Page 3

post #21 of 31
hey, i've looked at many TVs. the res's of any 1080i and under TV only get about 1280x768 (or just a tad bit higher) and when you get a 1080p TV, the res increases to 1920x1080. There is a very noticeable difference in them (i can even tell, and when you get real close, you can see the difference even better)


One thing i will say, is get the biggest TV your budget allows. you won't regret it.

I've got a 42" LG and an 46" Sony Bravia and I recommend them both. There are lots of other good brands like Samsung, Sharp, Vizio, Panasonic that all have good quality.

Pioneer or Samsung. Sony's are ridiculously overpriced and don't offer any more than the rest.

I myself own a Philips 720P from a little bit ago, it's a decent TV also, but I wouldn't reccomend it over a Samsung.

Sony is the best, just go to any store and look at the TV's and you will find Sony's picture is unmatched in quality, sharpness, and deep blacks. 1080p Starts at 40", I got my 40" 1080p for $1450 at Costco.

Samsung has excellent quality for the price. Read the reviews online.

(No Samsung TV, but I have a Samsung 22" LCD that is AMAZING! - not to mention only $250!)
post #28 of 31
I dont know if its the stores not knowing how to set tvs up but ive looked at all these tvs that you guys have suggested and it seems to me that everyone of the suffers in high action scenes. Some more than others but what i see them doing is in areas where the picture is changing too rapidly for the lcd to keep up it creates grids of about 1/2" squares. Anyone else see this?? im probly not doing a very good job of explaining. I guess it has to do with the signal response time.

Kinda like giant pixels?

Could be the source. Most stores seem to have one signal split among multiple TVs. And it could be the TV itself. Some TVs have 120Hz refresh rates which help smooth out fast moving images. It's a nice feature but some people think it makes the images look like they were shot from a camcorder. I'd check out that feature, and of course the response time of the panel (lower=better).

Buying a TV these days is like buying a car....happy hunting!

Here's the TV I just bought recently - . Personally I think its the best TV you can buy for the money.

Get a samsung.
My family and I haven't had any problems with any of our Samsung HDTVs or monitors.
Samsung 56" DLP 1080P, Samsung 50" DLP 1080P, Samsung 23" LCD 720P, and of course my monitor Samsung 206bw.

Great quality at a reasonable price.
