    I'm looking to get myself a tv for my room. I'm looking for a good price, and will look good with digital cable xbox360 and ps3. It should be a decent size so I could take it to college with me.

    why don't you just search for yourself in the forums and on google etc, while you await replies; i decided to buy a new HDTV a few days ago, an hour of googling is all it took, now it's purchased, setup and due to putting the effort into reading up on stuff beforehand, a very good buy

    the little i know about LCD's is that apparently only 2 companies make the screens for ALL LCD's (can't remember which 2 companies they are), so it doesn't have to be Sony that you buy. Back when i bought my most expensive tv (i mean the most expensive tv i bought prior to my Samsung 32" LCD), it was a Sony 25" tv, £800 if i recall correctly, back in the late 90's, i bought Sony purely as i knew the tube would last (and that tv is still going strong, even after 2 house moves), these days you don't have to buy a Sony (for example) for the same reasons, as (i don't think) it's Sony that make the actual screens

    With the technology advancing so quickly, and with all the bells & whistles being accompanied on these TVs it makes it difficult to do thorough research. I have a hard enough time deciding which route to take LCD or Plasma. Then after that I can go further and choose DLP or Rear Projection? Or if I go LCD I can go with LcOS?. Creaky I understand your frustration but some of us aren't intelligent enough to even think about who makes the screens... I understand everyone's frustration due to choosing the best quality/best resolution/best contrast/best picture/best color...

    WTF I can get a 62 dlp for that 875 on ebay! Like this guy has sold a ton of them for around this price. It seems like the tvs keep getting cheaper! Wonder when it will start holding its price?

    Hey guys. I just went through the buying process. When I started I was a complete ignoramous. Within a short time of researching I got a good handle on the different "bells and whistles". I too was confused as to why you could buy a 72" HD DLP on amazon for less than 3K, yet get a 60" LCoS for 3500. It all has to do with model year (one letter or number in a model number can make hundreds of dollars of difference in price), inputs(whether they accept 1080p/i), display resolution, performance record (that is, are the bulbs prone to blowing out in 2 months or the infamous "green blob" problem) and personal preference of picture quality. It's a pain but it really is to your advantage to take the time to educate yourselves about features and research the prices.
