  • Need Help Buying a TV

    so, my tv broke the other day

    need to buy a new one; i know to get an hd one (we have the hd channels), but i dont know anything else about tv; like plasma, lcd, etc

    its in our main room, and the xbox will be hooked up to it

    something around 30"-46"; something around $900 (stimulus check just came:) )

    thanks

    LCD is likely your best bet. Get a brand name.

    Other than that, there's a million options that depend on how much you want to spend, what is important to you, etc.

        LCD is better than Plasma, I feel. My roommate bought a 46" Sony Bravia recently and it's amazing. I love that TV.

          If you are looking for a 900 dollar TV you need to go LCD for sure. Make sure to get a good brand. I would recomend getting a 32 inch LG, Samsung, or Sharp as they all would be perfect for what you are looking for and they should only run you about 700 bucks.

                unless you have a massive room it's better to get a tv in the 30''-35'' range. Plasma has better picture, but lcd is more durable and will last longer because images burn into plasma screens.

                  There is also the issue of it being near impossible to see a plasma TV if you get sunlight in the room the TV is in so unless your TV is in the basement LCD is the answer.

                      make sure you get 1080i

                      Yeah just watch out for image burn in you tv.

                      Samsung is a really popular tv.

                      Also Plasmas die out, pretty quick

                        I would go with Sony, Samsung's sometimes go kaput.

                          I have a thin, dim black line going through my tv. Sometimes it's pretty bad but, I dont see it when I'm playing my 360. Hell if I know what it is. It sucks, though.

                          Thanks BoneKrusher^

                            Not all Plasmas die out quick. I helped my parents get a TV and we made sure to get a very good brand as it is guaranteed to never die.

                              You got to check your warranty. For what it goes kaput for, if you mean burn out. Half-life thing the TV will usally last 30,000 hour min. And thats around 12:D years min.
