  • Vanity: Please tell me which LCD TV to buy....

    I'm just numb from doing research, so I'm opening up the floor to take suggestions from FReepers. I hate to think that I'm going to be dropping $2K on a TV that has a life of 2 years (Samsung, Vizio, according to the interwebs). Looking for a 46" LCD with a matte screen (brightly lit room). Anyone actually happy with a brand/model? Mostly interested in comments about reliability, since I HATE shopping for stuff like this every couple of years.

    October 25, 2004 Dear Associate: On November 2, America faces an election of immense importance. I don't normally endorse candidates but the enormity of this election is unlike any other. I urge you to vote for George Bush for President of the United States. Please consider my reasons. There are a vast number of issues that affect us. I ask that you forget Vietnam and Swift boat veteran testimonials. Forget the impressive debating skills of John Kerry. Forget Teresa Heinz Kerry's impetuous outbursts. Forget even more important issues such as welfare, nationalization of health care, Kerry's promising everything to everyone,...

This is a second computer that I think the kids messed up. Have no confidence in tackling the job myself. I'm near Grand Prairie, so location is not much of a problem. Danke!
