I don't watch TV programs at all, no cable, no nothing---I just use the TV to watch my DVD movies. So now that this TV is kaput, what's all that about LCDs, LEDs, plasmas, 720p, 1080p, and all that other headache causing stuff?

Cool, this should be a good technology thread, how modern is your home, your style, image?

I purchased a Sharp Aquos four years ago. Spent $1300 on it. 2 weeks ago...wouldn’t come on. Called Sharp, they sent me to an authorized specialist. They said they were on the phone with Sharp for over two hours. They could not get it on...said it was dead...could not be repaired.

So, I purchased a Sceptre 46” from QVC...$599, on 6 easy payments. I am delighted with it. Better picture than the Sharp and much better sound quality. I am quite happy with it. Good TV for the money. Good luck with your search!

An LCD, for sure. The size is the only question. Don’t scale down in the name of frugality. Get one that seems nice and big to you ... there will be ones even bigger, don’t worry about that!

I bought an "Insignia™" 2 years ago. That is the Best Buy house brand. Been very pleased with it; saved a bundle compared to big name brands. Excellent picture quality and sound.

You want a large 32” flat screen TV/monitor. The main signal you will be using is the VGA adapter so you can connect it to your computer. You will begin to watch movies through your computer. You will create a new micro library in an external 2 tera bite hard drive. You will start ripping the main movie of your DVDs and copying your old VHS cassettes onto your external hard drive using software and hardware on your computer. This external hard drive is going to become your new video library so instead of having to keep shelves and boxes of DVDs and video cassettes, you will store all the videos on a single hard drive which is no bigger than one VHS cassette. You will be able to select your video file(s) from a list on the screen and you won’t have to go hunting for the actual box you use to store it in. The film will play from the hard drive through your computer on Windows Media Player through the VGA adapter to your 32” flat screen TV. There will be no commercials because you can edit them out with software on the computer. You will also watch other sources like Hulu or Youtube or Animefreak.tv over the internet on this new TV. You library of classics, Disney, documentaries, action adventure, sci-fi, cartoons, sitcoms, etc. will be accessible within a few mouse clicks instead of a trip across the living room. You’ll have so much material you could broadcast your own TV channel for days, weeks, or months before seeing a rerun. What brand of TV? ANYTHING EXCEPT EMERSON will do.

...LCDs, LEDs, plasmas, 720p, 1080p...

Forget about all that stuff. They all have their good and bad points. Just go to the store tomorrow and buy whatever strikes your fancy. Take it home and enjoy it.

Keep it simple. Please just keep it simple.

Now days (having just did this several times)....go to www.circuitcity.com or www.ecost.com....get either a new or factory refurbished 1080p LED or LCD flat screen, about 40”-42”. You won’t break the bank. Brand doesn’t much matter any more. Try to get 120Hz (screen refresh rate); your eyes will thank you.

Other than that....I swear that’s all you need.

I think it is a Sony Bravida(?) that I got at Costco. I went in with all of the tech stuff (I forget which brand I was leaning too) - but then started to look at the picture quality.

I had measured the living room and thought a 42-inch would be a good size (only about 15-foot viewing distance) based on the internet research.

But in the store the 47-inch looked a lot better. Ended up with that. Put it up on the wall, and boy am I glad I didn’t go with the smaller size! Internet ready as well - either through the computer or direct (via wire or wireless). Pain in the butt to do anything on the wire, so we just run it through the pc when we need to.

The guy said Sony still has a good reputation for quality, but I’m thinking these flat-screens don’t last as long as the old tube ones.

I was just at a site discussing this.

The first thing to know is how far away do you want to sit from the tv. Your tv, in inches, should be about 1/2 to 2/3 the size of your viewing distance.

So, for example, if you’re sitting 6 feet away, which is 72 inches, you’re tv size range should be between 36 and 48 inches.

If you want 40 inches or less, LCD is the choice. Between 40 and 60 inches, the site suggested LED or plasma. If you’re going bigger and are prepared to do the proper preparation work, projector.

Of course, it also depends on your personal preferences and budget and stuff.

We replaced our tube TV, gosh, 2 or 3 years ago at least, and I did calculations based on the idea that the screen should at least cover the old screen, with extra width of course. I think a rule of thumb is that you should go a step above that. It’s a new TV! Live a little! Plus, the larger screens do not represent the technological “stretch” that large CRT screens did. Also plus, when we bought ours the sales rep said that the most common buyer’s remorse was that they should have gotten a bigger one. Well, he might say that, but I believed him, so we went with the top end of what we had in mind. I couldn’t even tell you the inches right now. It’s a modest size in the range of what’s on the market ( which offers much bigger ones than a few years ago, ) but it seems very luxurious to us, even now.

Bottom line - get one with a bigger image than the old TV you’re replacing.

Make sure to get 1080p, the rest is up to you, but LCD is by far the most common. The reason you want 1080p and not 720 is that a 1080p will have a sharper picture and if you have a bluray player you will see a difference. Your new TV can also be used as a second computer monitor, and then you can use services like Netflix and Amazon to watch movies.

What I would suggest as a really cheap alternative would be to get a decent computer monitor and a decent media player computer instead.

Microcenter regularly has some outstanding deals on monitors. For example, right now, they have a deal on a 23.6 inch LED monitor for $139.00. If you were to combine that with a refurb desktop computer, such as this HP, for $179.00, you would have a fully functional media center for less than $500.00.

You can go for monitors that are sized up to 27 inches: for about $350 or so. If you want to go with a larger size, you can get 40 inch televisions that can serve as a monitor for around $500-700 or so.

Nevertheless, I would suggest that you look at upgrading to the media center computer model vice the TV/DVD model.

For television specs, I would suggest the following:

Don't even consider 720p or less. The technology is such that 1080p is absolutely the way to go. The more dots per inch, the better off you'll be.

A real key is to look at the different types of inputs that are available: you want to have a monitor that will accept VGA (so it can serve as a computer monitor), HDMI -- I would suggest one that accepts 2 HDMI inputs. One for a laptop / desktop, and one for a Blu-Ray player.

I would stay away from Plasma technology. My first preference would be LED over LCD. LED technology is thinner, lighter, and generates less heat than LCD technology. I say stay away from Plasma technology because if ANYTHING happens to it, the entire monitor is gone, while with LED/LCD, you can lose a pixel or two and the monitor is still usable.

If you are interested in Microcenter, they have stores in Patterson, Westbury, and Yonkers, as well as a web store.

If I were to get a tv, I’d want it as big, but comfortable as I could myself. I tend to like my tv to be like a movie screen, where the width is almost as wide as my viewing abilty.

The price difference between most sizes is only a couple hundred dollars these days anyway.

LG is a good name and that is a damm good price for a 42"

I have a Vizio 37" that I paid about the same for, two years ago. I love it, but if I didn't have it. I'd jump at this offer.

I have both plasma and LED. Plasma can be seen from any angle, LCD/LED wash out as you move to one side or the other. Plasma is pretty inexpensive and all the old issues have long been solved. LED is much lighter and thinner. If it sits on a table or some other fixture, plasma is great. If you want to hang on the wall, LED is the way to go. I'd go with with at least a 50 inch set and 1080p.

Another consideration is getting the same brand TV as your DVD player. I have Samsung TVs and DVD players, which means the remotes are compatible and in your case, everything can be done with the DVD remote, since you don't use it for cable or on-air. If your DVD player is ancient, consider getting a Bluray DVD player. They're pretty cheap now and will give you a much better picture.

Avoid all the gimmicks like built-in wifi or wifi ready, since you don't seem to use such features. One thing getting really cheap is 3D plasma TVs, which might be of interest to you since movies are coming out in 3D.

I upgraded the house to HD last fall. I have one more TV to get and am going to get this one. I have found that the online features on the various machines, TV, DVD players, etc. Just don’t quite cut it.

The wife just wants to turn it on and watch, volumne goes up and down when pushing the button. She does have a DVR which she loves. Having to change inputs is not necessary. I do have an extra 36” Sony flat screen CRT for free for anyone that can lift 200lbs. :)

I can only give you the advice I followed myself, Philips/LG LCD TV and a basic Alba DVD player. The VGA plug in the TV is good for the internet, via PC. Many will deny this, but be careful of the focus on LCD screens some can really hurt your eyes over an extended period of time.

The advice about looking at Craig’s list is good for your needs. Or go to a second hand shop and pick up an old used TV w/a DVD player. Should keep you happy for a few more years.

instead of having to keep shelves and boxes of DVDs and video cassettes, you will store all the videos on a single hard drive which is no bigger than one VHS cassette

Please remember that ALL storage media will die one day. Do not rely on a single storage device or one day you will find you have lost everything. If you go this route, backup everything on a regular basis.

Some negative comments from BB customers - BUT I suggest using your credit card not BB’s for all purchases, (most CC companies give you a 1 year extended warranty, check with the 800 number on the back of your card first to confirm before purchasing)!

As for the above review, the 42 and 47 inch LG TV had similar comments, caveat emptor!

I’ll echo what some others have said.

First, determine the size of your viewing space and how far you sit from your TV set. Then go on line and find a webpage that tells you the optimal size TV you should get. If the set you get is too small, it won’t please you. If the set you get is too big for your space, it won’t look very good.

Then go to the stores and get an idea what brand looks best to you. They’re NOT all the same. Don’t buy anything. Go home and look up reviews of the models that interest you. Maybe that’ll help knock some of ‘em out of consideration, if they’ve gotten terrible reviews.

And, yes, go 1080p, for sure.

Oh, and keep that “brightness” button in mind. In the stores, virtually every set is always set on the extreme “BRIGHT!” setting. That’s not the way you’ll want to watch movies, so keep that in mind both before and after you buy the set.

Good luck :-)

Go all out and get at least a 50-incher with as many input/output connections as possible, especially for speakers. With a big picture, you’ll never regret having the big sound capability to go along with it.

I’m sorry your TV died. I cried bitter tears when mine died. I used it only for watching DVDs. Since I don’t feel that a TV should be the main focus in a room, I bought small. I’m not excited about actors being in my face when watching them in a small room.

I ended up buying a Sylvania LD195SSX 19-Inch HD Flat Panel LCD/DVD Combo. I’m happy with it. I like that the DVDs are inserted from the top. You just plop them down and they’re ready to play.

Later, for an upstairs bedroom, I bought a Toshiba 15LV505 15.6-Inch Widescreen LCD TV with Built-in DVD Player. This model I don’t like. Every time I turn it on it searches for a cable connection, something I don’t have nor intend to get any time soon. The DVDs are inserted at the side. Something about this feels weird. It’s as if you have to be more careful about how you insert them.

Although I’m happy with the new LCD TVs, I do miss my old TV. It was simple.

Love watching my old DVDs on my 40" HD Sharp Aqious TV on HDMI. These old DVDs have new life as there is more picture information there than you ever imagined.

What I've heard is that Blue Ray DVDs are good at 42" and above so they don't help my 40". So if you plan to stay with your DVDs think 42" or less.

Consider buying a new DVD player with HDMI. Composite (5 wire cables) just does not compare. With HDMI every pixel is perfect. You can get these very cheaply.

We found this information the hard way by purchasing a Blue Ray player and wondering why the Blue Ray DVDs were not any better on our 40" HDTV. The Blue Ray player did come with Internet enhancements (Youtube, Netflix and more). So we use our old DVDs on our Blue Ray player and have all these now. But I write so you don't have to find that out.

I purchased a Vizio (American-made) three years ago. It's a 42" HD LCD. I love it! Great picture, beautiful design. I have the audio hooked up to my stereo but the native speakers are adequate. Lots of inputs, including HDMI. Very easy to hook up.

I don't know anything about the performance of the LED TVs but I'm told that's a step up from LCD in HD delivery. I don't care for 3DTV because content is not widely available and I do get motion sickness easily.

Buy a 1080P because that is the full, expanded size of HD, so far. The P stands for progressive scan, which moves in a zig-zag motion when refreshing the screen to show the TV image, as opposed to the CRT interlaced scanning, which is alternating lines scanning down the screen to create an interlaced image of what's on the screen.

Back to 1080P, 720i or p is have the image information of 1080 so your HD information is being compressed so it can show on a 720 set. So go with the 1080P.
