Looking to purchase tv in the neighborhood of 42-50 inches and need to do it fast. Any recommendations out there? Thanks for any input.
Budget? Get a Samsung plasma.
I like my Vizio from Walmart.
The secret is using Monster cables.

About $1000 on budget. Could go a little more.
You could go bigger with 1k
(Hogie) 42-50 inches? So you're looking for a kitchen TV? (Hogie)
SATerp, what kind of Vizio? I got a great Vizio 42 inch LED, 120Hz, 1080p Smart TV and I love it so far.
Just bought a 60" Samsung plasma for 1k. Love it.
It's just a 32" 720p in my den (my first LED), but it's been great. Next one will be larger and 1080p, but since I'm on the road a lot, I'm in no rush to replace it.
When do prices generally drop, around Super Bowl time no? Looking for a 70 inch and those prices really haven't budged too much.
I have spent a lot of time looking at tvs recently. My favorite was the panasonic plasmas. the gt55 series was my favorite model for the money. However, if you have a lot of light coming into the room, you may want to avoid plasmas and/or any samsung. samsung added a material to its glass to dullen the glare, but you can notice the material as an opaque screen if you look close enough.
people like to talk bad about sony recently, but their lcd's (especially the 850) are stunning and crisp looking without any glare. that one was defintely my favorite of the lcd's.
if you don't have that much glare in your room, i would look closely at the panasonic gt series
i have a samsung plasma and a samsung LCD. i love them both, but especially my plasma.
OK that is way cool. But if one is watching a comedy and laughing at random times and the other is watching a big game I see conflict on the home front.
I have 2 panasonic vieras. Both are about 3 or 4 years old. Love both despite being outdated technology by now.
I have three. love them.
Tell me why I just shouldn't buy this. done to 1599 today free shipping no tax
The E1i-A3's picture can't match the black-level performance of some competing LED TVs, and suffers from some uniformity issues. Its Smart TV interface design seems a bit dated and cumbersome.
I stole that from CNet. They give it 3 1/2 stars and state, "The Vizio E701i-A3 is the best value yet among 70-inch LED TVs."
all of the experts (and non experts) seem to always say that the best picture quality is found in plasmas, but to my eye, LCD's picture spec for spec always seems a little better.
I pulled the trigger on it. Its for my basement and honestly don't think I will notice the difference between that and 3k television. This gives me money to buy a sound bar or something plus some sort of furniture to put it on or hang it over. My kids are down in the basement and if they break it I won't be out of control pissed if I only spent 1600 I suppose.
Panasonic 50ST50. $1049 from Abe's of Maine ($100 gift card right now w/ purchase).
You will find no better TV for this price.
