    Figured I would give an update on the TV i just bought for my bedroom. It is the 27" Olevia LCD HDTV.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16889022020

    Pros: Very clear picture. Equal or better to some of the higher end TV's I was looking at. Considering the price I was not expecting the picture quality to be near this good. Easy to mount. Inexpensive.

    Cons: Limited inputs. The remote sucks. Since these series TV's are new there aren't any codes available out there to program universal remotes. Not a big deal as I use my cable remote for everything but turning the tv on/off. I could always get a learning remote but it's just not that big of a deal.

    Neutral: It doesn't have a tuner built in. I knew this going in but figured I would throw it out there for anybody considering this model.

    Conclusion: I couldn't be happier with my purchase. For under $500 I got a TV, mount, and shipping. In a short while I'm sure there will be remote codes available and then I will have zero gripes. For budget TV's I would definitely recommend Olevia over Vizio and certainly over Westinghouse.

    Ok, here is my simple question:

    I want a 50 inch TV for around 1500-2000 bucks. It doesn't have to be a thin wall mounted one, I can have a bigger model. What are my BEST options?

    Take a look at Sony's SXRD line. Based on LCOS technology I haven't seen anything at that price that comes close to touching the picture quality. I would take it any day over a DLP or LCD rear projection.

    Shop around and you can get a better deal than Amazon's price.

    Agree with you 100% with the Sony SXRD line, just got a 50 for my mom. Looks great!

    Well, either you're lucky or I'm unlucky. I had the 22 inch Sceptre for 2 weeks before it just stopped working. Returned it to Costco and bought the 22 inch Samsung. Much happier with the Samsung.

    What do you guys/gals think of this?:

    http://reviews.cnet.com/Panasonic_TH...l?tag=pdtl-img

    I know it is only 1080i, but it is a plasma. I don't know if I can fit a rear projection in my living room.

    edit: So, this TV is a pro model therefore it doesn't come with a tuner or speakers. Yet, since I would be using a cable box and I already have surround sound...I most likely wouldn't be needed either of those. The only problem is that I would need to purchase a DVI componet to add to the TV (like 50 bucks I think).

    I picked up a 32" Olevia for my home office today for $543 at Circuit City. Great looking picture just using the rabbit ears. Directv guy will be by Sat to hook up the HD recorder which cost another $210 (much cheaper than the first one I bought) and I'm 100% digital in both rooms.

    Samsung LNT4065F 40" 1080p LCD HDTV

    That is the best LCD HDTV in that range IMHO. The contrast ratio is 15,000:1. Which rivals most plasmas.

    And it's only $1800 through Amazon.

    If you're looking for quality, this is the tv to buy. I know the MSRP says it's 3500 but i've done some research and have found it on-line for 2700 no tax and free shipping. It's expensive but definatley worth it. This is going to be my x-mas present to myself this year.
