Default Going LCD Shopping...

Within the next couple of weeks, I will be looking at purchasing a new LCD Flat Panel TV. Complete noob to this stuff, what should I look for? Basically, I would like something in the 40-42" range and have heard good things about Sony, Sharp, and Samsung. Any input would be appreciated!

Vizio is a nice TV
Samsung & Sony make some of the clearest i've seen

Go to Best Buy & Circuit City and play around with the settings
if i can find the link to where someone posted about what to look for, ill post it for you.

Yeah, I plan to, I just want to know what to look for before I get there. Like refresh rates and all that stuff.

Well sir...lucky for you I work in home electronics at sears! haha LCD is the best way to go if your hookin it up in a room with lots of glares and such becuz the screen does not reflect light as bad as plasma. Your best brands in LCD by far are Sony, Samsung, and panasonic. In the 42 inch area I would suggest the Samsung Touch of Color series, as well as the Sony Bravia. Your newest things to look for in a LCD which will assure you it's the best is if it has at least one of the following, 1080 resolution, 120 hz filtering, and has a high contrast ratio. If you were lookin for cost efficiency and do not have a problem with glare, I would suggest a plasma. You will be able to get a bigger tv for less. The screen reflects light bad so that might be sumthin to tink about. The plasmas have a higher refresh right but the picture doesnt look quite as good. If your gonna get plasma go Panasonic ftw! Hope that answers some of your questions

resolution
contrast ratio
and how many horizontal scan lines it has (720/1080)

Basicly resolution the higher it is the smaller the pixels will be and the higher quality the picture is going to be

Contrast ratio. A higher number is gonna mean a brighter picture

and horizontal scan lines. basicly will remain the same as the rest. the higher the better. but price will reflect the change. might have to ask a sales associate or other expert on the matter for more info

Suggested brands: Samsung, and LG. I havent done alot of looking lately but i do know samsung is a top notch brand IMO atleast.

Best advice is go into town with a pen and pad pay attention to the tv's find a picture you like pay attention to wut the resolution is and other detals. record the price. then compare the same details to other brands. come home get online maybe on some computer/technology forums (techpowerup.com is a good site.might be able to answer some question) read reviews..find out wuts right for u.

Your on the right track in the first place by wanting an LCD. thats the only way to go now days. rear projection's go out in 1-3 yrs and require a $300 bulb to be replaced. and i hear plasma's go out in a year or 2 from similiar complications..

Happy shopping

P.S check out newegg.com, tigerdirect.com, zipzoomfly.com

newegg i know for sure.. but check em out see wut u can find on there
