LCD help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all, going to buy a tv tomorrow. would like some quick input. looking 40-42 inch 1080P lcd. My questions are:

Which brand should I look towards the most? Sony? Samsung? Sharp? or are there others that might be worthwhile?

Also should I go 120Hz? seems like a noticeable increase, what prices should i expect? Thanks

Those are all good brands but I chose a Hannspree 42" because it was the least expensive 1080p, 120hz lcd tv out there and as far as reliability, I use a 24" Hannspree lcd monitor in my sig rig and it's been working fine for over a year. You didn't say what your budget was but Toshiba has some really good reviews. If I wasn't so cheap, that would be the set I would buy
