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.
That's why I'm looking for alternatives and I've been thinking about Samsung or LG. My last 2 Tvs were Vizio and I was happy with them but I'd rather try something new now.
By the way it might sound stupid but is there a big difference between 40" and 42"? I'm gonna sell a 42" so I don't think I'll settle with something smaller lol. I also know the way manufacturers measure the diagonal differently, most include the bezel and others don't so that's something to consider.

you will not notice the smaller screen. For a 12x12 room a 37 inch is perfect. I used a lg 32" as a monitor for the longest time before switching it out so my bro can have a tv in his room.

32 Inch was fine for my 12x12 room but 37 would be perfect. 40 inch would be ideal but any bigger you will start to see the pixels.

I like lg but some people say they bleed alot, recon most people with a brain will calibrate their tv first before complaining.

Get 120hz if you watch sports, 60hz is fine for a monitor/movie viewing experience.

Only go for high quality/brand led tv, however most are out of your price range. Cheaper led tv give the screen a slight blue hue.

I think my room is 14x12 and I sit about 4ft away from the TV, I used to have a 32" and upgraded to a 42" so I would prefer the same size.
Anyway I don't even use it that much as I'm on my computer more often, just only for Blu Ray movies and console gaming.
Some suggest I should consider the new gen of plasma but it seems to be out of my range, and since there's plenty of options out there so I'm just looking to get the best out of it.

The G25 is a great TV and going to give you a better quality picture than the LCD or LED-LCDs will. It's definitely a great choice for a 42" Plasma.

plasma TV's are absolutely amazing and completely underrated.
If you watch a lot of movies that have really fast action scenes, then a plasma will be great.
I have watched FF7 Advent children on bluray on an LCD and on Plasma, and with the plasma the fight scenes are smooth as butter.

My dad just got this TV:

It's pretty nice, has a good picture quality, don't really know how it compares to other tvs.

You can buy a 50 inch Samsung or Panasonic 1080p Plasma in that range.

My Panasonic plasma that I bought in 2005 still is issue free. Unless the room has a lot of dirrect light I would still get a plasma over lcd anyday due ot the better image quality. It is so hard to cause burn in on a plasma.

My buddy just got a 58 inch samsung plasma, it is awesome.

As you mainly use the TV for watching blu-ray movies, I suggest a Plasma one over a LCD one.

Plasma's dark is darker and the colour seems to be more natural (to me anyway) when watching HD movies. LCD tends to be better if you are watching TV. However, for Plasma, it is better to turn down room light when watching movies.
