Well, the big, 500 lb Sony Trinitron (weight guessed at… I’ve lifted it, and it hurt) has passed away. sort of.
So it’s time for me to buy a new TV for the family room. I have really never delved into the new technology of hi def TV, plasma vs LED or LCD or whatever. If you know the trinitron I have, it’s a curved screen behemoth, with a great picture. But it’s not hi-def.
So, help me out here. What’s the best thing to focus on… plasma, or LED or whatever?
I know that 1080p is the size I should get if I want the absolute best picture possible (well, I think so), but I have seen screens with different numbers in front of it.
Truthfully the only thing I do know is the following:
- The TV can be 45 inches or bigger, and
- I don’t need 3D technology ( I don’t think)
Quite frankly, I don’t even know if I want hi-def, as I’ve seen it and I’m not particularly fond of it. I do not need to see the hair plugs on announcers, however I am going to assume that I’m going to have to accept that HD is in my immediate future.
So that’s it. Of course, on sale is the best way to be for a TV, and Id rather not spend more than $1K on it.
Other than that, I really don’t have any requirements.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, and opinions on whatever you might like.
