    Default Time for a big TV seen any great deals

    The other half wants a bigger TV !
    I have been holding out since plasma came out for the price quality ratio to get to a point were we would get the most bang for our buck and I think its there. What I want is a 55" LED 1080p wireless smart TV preferably Samsung but if 3d is an option LG with the passive glasses is the one. Over 60" stuff is to stretched. I am willing to compromise with a LG - 47" Class (44-9/10" Diag.) - LED - 1080p - 120Hz - HDTV and get the smart TV part via a blueray player. I am not that excited over 3D and not a sports watcher so 120hz is not a must but LED and brand is I am a Samsung fanboy LG just has me with the passive glasses . I can do refurbished, I have had great luck that way but no off brands or cheap stuff. and I want the DVD to be the same brand as the TV. OH and I want Optical out for Audio No built in sound system they seem to break down easy.
    hoping skim links picks up a good deal via the terms I used .

    Patience will pay off. Wait until after Jan 15th. Prices during the Holidays aren't the best.

    Stay away from plasma. The electric consumption isn't worth the lower price.

    Research those 'smart' TV's or ones with WiFi...sometimes they need an additional subscription service or dongle.

    Why so small? You should be able to get a decent 55" LED TV for about $900.

    LED or nothing at all. Not only because of the electric use but the heat is death to electronics.
    60hz is not taxing on the processor and the only reason I might want 120 is the rare 3d movie we would watch.
    Narrow bezels are better but the ultra thin is just not that important
    Built in Wi-fi and Apps can be had on the Blue ray player and that would be fine with me. the only one I am sure I will use id netflix, until HULU decides it can do premium without Ads they are a no go .
    I would like to be able to plug a USB drive into it and play from there so being able to update the Codecs is important But I sure don't want something that requires Internet to work at all. Like the new blue rays that won't play on older devices.

    I have noticed that over 55 inches the 1080 lines become noticeable and I just don't have a big enough room to sit that far back. so until the ultra sharp 8MP 2160p comes out of orbit in 5 years or so like theLG 84-inch, 4k TV for $22,000

    I think 50" is about as big as I want now due to the limitations of my house and the future plans 45" total wide is about the limit for my plans that calculates out to (45/16)*9 = 2.81*9 = 25.31 or a 45x25 viewing area or that would be sqrt of (45sqr + 25 sqr) 51.63 Diagonal allowing for a bezel I figure 50" is the target number.

    I am also noticing that the diagonal measure is not being adhered to by every ad 16:9 ratio should be a 25 Diagonal but a few ads are using the some other width instead to beef up the apparent size.

    What I don't get Is how they call a 45" a 47" class I think it is misleading advertising !!
    Like this on bestbuy.com
    LG - 47" Class (44-9/10" Diag.) - LED - 1080p - 120Hz - HDTV
    Model: 47LS4500 SKU: 6685302 On Sale $579.99 Regular Price: $649.99 You Save: $70.00 Free Shipping
    Width 42-9/10"
    Weight 37.5 lbs. with stand (32.9 lbs. without)
    TV Type LED Flat-Panel
    Screen Size Class 47"
    Screen Size (Measured Diagonally) 44-9/10" Size of the screen, in inches, measured diagonally from corner to corner.
    I have a Syncmaster T260 ($600.00 2008 Operating Power Consumption 54 W)that was sold as a 26" its 1920x1200 resolution 2.3MP 16:10 and the diagonal size is 25.5 inches
    were the newer Syncmaster SA350($210.00 2012 Operating Power Consumption 29 W) that is as marketed 27" 16:9 is 27" Diagonal

    They sit side by side and look almost Identical in size.
    when watching a movie, the older 26" is better for watching films and 4:3 ratio and the newer 27" for CinemaScope WIDE.

    Only 1/4 inch difference in vertical size 13 1/2" vs 13" yet the horizontal measure is 21 1/2" vs 23 1/2"

    Now for picture quality the LED is much brighter but the black levels in dark scenes is better on the LCD I do not think the color accuracy on the older one is as good but viewing from an angle is better.

    I made that switch from a Mitsubishi 55 after getting the 26" Samsung and cloning the display you could not keep your eyes off the smaller HD image. This is why Projection is a no go for me.

    The side lit LED or OLED (organic light-emitting diode) Might be the question but its leading edge isn't worth the extra cost. It will take a while to save that much on the slightly lower power use.

    I am seeing Vizo and LG are the 3d choice, the active glasses gave me a headache but again that is not the primary feature I am after.

    The Vizo M550NV 55 inch is looking like the Power consumption is 125 Watt but its Fat Bezel makes it 55.4 in wide I would just assume have one that is 8 - 10 inches thick and without all that frame

    The Samsung UN50EH5000 is in the sweet zone for a non 3D but its reviews say the black levels are not so hot and we were inspired by the under 600.00 price tags not those closer to 1000.00 at this time.


    60hz 120 hz might have a slight difference because an in between frame is generated by the TV but the 240hz is just marketing bunk your eyes are not that fast.

    We very well may wait till after the first of the year , hell we have been waiting 7 years already whats 7 weeks.

    My biggest challenge was find a stand that I liked that would hold a 60". Most only hold up to 55". And those were few and far between.

    So even though I have the TV, I'm waiting on the stand to be delivered!

    BTW No 3d here either!

    you mean a wall mount ? I wouldn't trust one that big sitting on a pedestal I will probably set mint into a custom cabinet or wood paneling that will make hiding the cables and Blueray and the sound system easier.

    High enough and stable enough that the 3 labs won't even come close. Closed doors keeps dog hair out of satellite box, blu-ray player and surround sound. Drawer to store DVDs.

    Root...please stop over analyzing your TV purchase. Comparing and understanding the specs will make your trouser trout and brain housing group become unusable.

    In a typical living room set-up your eyes won't be able to distinguish the minute, but costly differences in specs.

    My recommendations are:

    1) 55"
    2) 120mhz
    3) Recognized brand
    4) HDMI x3 (minimum)
    5) Skip the WiFi or smart TV's, a Roku is a better choice.
    6) Skip the 3D, it didn't take off, just like it didn't take off in the 70's, 80's, or 90's
    7) No plasma, unless you want the increased electric bills
    8) Say yes to wall mounts

    Here's another deal I just saw on Amazon:

    Panasonic 55" LED LCD IPS 120hz TV TC-L55E50 for $888, free shipping and no tax. There is a promo right now for a $100 Amazon account credit. Not bad @ $788 total. The IPS gives you a decent 178 degree viewing angle.

    My recommendation it to buy the one you like the best and get a dvd you like and then invite me over. I will bring brownies or cookies (your choice) and we can watch it together. I get to play with the pups while we watch tv too.

    In a typical living room set-up your eyes won't be able to distinguish the minute, but costly differences in specs.

    My recommendations are:

    1) 55"
    2) 120mhz
    3) Recognized brand
    4) HDMI x3 (minimum)
    5) Skip the WiFi or smart TV's, a Roku is a better choice.

    LOL I am just trying to babble enough that skimlinks grabs the right one so I can get a little back in commission, I have pretty much concluded that all your recommendations are just what I want. Except the Roku which I found while shopping for my mom was beat by a Samsung blue-ray player with the smart capacity for 88.00 I have had great luck with refurbished stuff from tiger direct and other online suppliers. If you think this is bad you should see the inside of my head on the redecorating and major changes I have in mind for our mortgage burning party next summer. Pantries, outdoor kitchens, dog free space solar panels porches fire pits and moving walls Oh my !!! all the senerios are playing out all the time.

    Accually Stumpy understanding the features is not that taxing, as I am a Curtis Mathis and Magnavox authorized service tech. Well at least was in the old days when CRT was the king and a TV or stereo was also a fine furniture decision. I am seriously thinking of attending the warranty service schools for a few big brands and going back into the business of Audio/video home service Its a lot easier now days than it was back then when you really had to know how to use a scope and meter to find the faulty component.
