Best brand for LED LCD TV
 
What's the best brand for LED LCD TVs now-a-days? I've got a 4 year old Samsung 46" LCD I'm looking to replace, since it's developing dead pixels, and after walking through the local Best Buy, and I was no impressed with what i saw from Sony and Samsung in the sub-$2000 price range (I'd love to keep the price under $1000). I saw a Sharp Aquos that was beautiful, but I've had one of those give me trouble before, too (thankfully before the return policy ran out). The information I've seen on Vizio's looks impressive, but I keep getting the feeling their specs and prices are too good to be true.

My 46" LG LED TV plays movie files directly from my portable disk is networkable and it cost 1000 bucks @ walmart(canadian taxes in). It'd be cheaper in the states since Canadians get ****ed..even though our currency is worth more.

I got a 42'' Vizio from Walmart on the Thanksgiving sale for $400. 1080p and works just fine with my Blu-Ray player. Paying near $1k for a TV just doesn't make sense to me.

I have to say this 32" LED 1080P 120HZ Vizio we got for the bedroom has a beautiful picture and I love their tv apps. It was a little more at $489 because it was one of their top of the line models and included the tv apps but it was well worth it in my opinion.

Samsung is so far the only brand I can find recently that reproduces colors accurately enough to work as a PC monitor, believe me I tried several before landing on this one.

The best of the best in large screen LEDs and televisions period is the Sharp Elite brand...prohibitively expensive. In your size range, I would go with Sony or Samsung and be very happy. Enjoy. Merry Christmas.

This is pretty much because you use your tv to do one thing, play blu-rays.

More expensive monitors can generally yield a better view field, 3d support, a thinner tv, and improved support for becoming a digital monitor. When using an HD tv as a pc monitor, the more control you have over the tv settings, and the ability to turn off any and all "filters" designed to improve tv viewing quality, the best chance you have at getting a descent PC monitor out of the deal.

This may be true but only gay people play tennis.

::wonder::

We looked at a heap of TVs when buying not too long ago. We were always impressed with the Sammysungs. Ended up going Plasma however for the size and it's purpose was primarily evening movies.

EDIT: Fing Bots!

Still ::wonder:: @ Rakeesh.
