    The DLP bulb died again, getting tired of replacing it. Plus the TV is getting old and starting to show some signs of deeper problems. Time to upgrade :D, probably I'll replace the bulb and move the TV down to the basement (if I ever get done finishing it)

    Research online shows a unanimous vote for the Panasonic Plasma as the best picture ever, nothing else is even close, especially for the price.


    Guess what TV is no longer in production :frustration: A few websites will show them for sale but as soon as I check out, there's a message saying "None in stock"

    I have nothing but good things to say about our Vizios. There is 10 of them in our family. Everyone loves them for the price

    I agree with the doc. I've had two and have no issues whatsoever.

    We have a 55 inch Vizio 3D set that has been awesome so far. Love the video quality.

    Plasma is all but dead, they had an arguably better picture but ran hotter, used more electricity, and don't have the long life that LEDs have.

    Like trucks, everyone has their favorite brand that they've had good luck with (mine is Sony) but we've reached a point they're all good, just decide the size and features you want, in a wrapper your wife likes, and in a known brand such as Sony, LG, Samsung, Vizio, etc. then buy it.

    I'm a huge Samsung fan. The most recent one I bought was this 40" for the bedroom. It rocks. (No clue on 3D though...we never use it)

    Samsung 6500 Series

    We picked up a 65" Samsung over the holidays for $900 at Best Buy. So far once I found out how to tweak it, all has been well and it has a great picture.

    We also have a Sony Bravia 42" that we moved into the den. It is going on 8yrs old and still rocks for a 1040i TV

    I agree with the others. We have Samsung, Sony, and Vizio in the house. No real complaints with any of them.
