LCD/Plasma HDTV recommendations needed ($750-$800 budget)

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so I'm gonna sell my 42" Vizio for $300 to my roommate and therefore I'm in search for a new one now.
My budget is around $750-$800, probably enough to get a good one? I just put in my bedroom and hook it up to my HTPC to play Blu Ray movies and play games on my PS3, 360.
Any suggestions are welcome, + rep to each reply

I agree, minus sony. With sony you pay for the name more then the quality.

I think 46" is a little too big for my room, I would say 42" is a perfect choice. The 40" Samsung is nice and I'll definitely look into that.
And why don't you guys like Sony besides the fact it's overprice? I mean the quality is still good compare to other brands right?

sony you get quality, don't get me wrong, but you pay a premium because it is a SONY.
So if you want to buy an overpriced TV then go for it, but you can get the same quality for cheaper in most cases.
Like my cousins 46inch bravia, they payed 2300 dollars for that TV, and the same month my dad bought a 46inch panasonic plasma for 900 dollars.

I really like the 42" lg 120hz on Newegg. I'm thinking about picking that up for myself.
