    besides, my neighbor put his widescreen out with the trash one day. it looked in great condition but it was an LG. no explanation necessary.

    I have a Sony Bravia 36". goes top notch at 1080p. I love it. actually, the most I ever get from a good HD channel is an 1080i.
    All that I have read are good ratings about this LG. This is the first I saw of something bad.

    What are the problems that you get with the LG?

    There really isn't much of a difference in 1080i or 1080p and yea your likely to never see any TV show in 1080p anyway cus it takes way too much bandwidth to broadcast it.

    Why spend $600-$700 on a TV that only gets 720p when you can get 1080i for the same price?
    How long ago? I didn't see anything like that

    Double checked and it was $799 not $699 my mistake. It was 50 bucks more then what Costco was selling it for.

    Added a 2 year warranty and it cost me roughly $1025. This was about 3 months ago.

    Yeah I've had my 42'' LG LCD for over a year now with no problems.

    There are other factors involved. Contrast ration for example. It's my experience that Vizio televisions sell for low amounts in large part because of their sub par contrast ration.

    A top notch television in the 30something size range will offer contrast ratios around 6,000:1 - 10,000:1. A lot of the Vizios that I have seen barley crack 1000:1 and pixel response time also leaves a bit to be desired.

    I'm glad someone brought up Flat Panel TV's. I'm in the market for a 42" and besides seeing them for myself, do any of you have specific recommendations?

    I'm debating between Plasma and LCD. My room isn't too bright so from what I've heard, a Plasma would be good. The couch is about 85"-95" away from the TV so a 42" seems to be the appropriate size.

    I've heard that the Sony Bravia's are supposed to be amazing but I'm not sure I have the budget. They seem to be much more expensive.

    i don't know if anyone mentioned it but it also depends on your viewing distance. if you're going to be far away, then it's not going to matter as much. i went with the 1080p just for the ps3 and it's niiiiice!

    Love that TV. LG really is a good value. Definitely prefer the 37" LG over the comparatively priced 37" Toshiba. I actually sold 3 of those in the month I was working there and one guy came back a few weeks later to buy something else and had rave reviews for it.

    Samsung and Sony really are superior to the rest. One way to go on a budget is to get the not-most-recent model on these; while the Bravia may be slightly faster then Sony' previous model, the money you save would be worth it.

    Check out Costco for great prices, and check weekly ads every Sunday for Best Buy and Circuit City to see what 42"ers are on sale. Sometimes they go on sale for a steal!
