Well, some may have remembered how I hinted about getting a new TV, since my sister my parents were wanting my old TV in a room (or have that one given to my sister as her 2nd TV). So that gave me a chance to get a new TV of exactly what I wanted it. I was aiming for 40" or bigger, 1080p, and maybe 120Hz (if I see the right deal). My Previous TV had somewhat of a display issue (it was a tad fuzzy for my PS3 and 360. Very noticeable on text and despite messing with settings, it stuck (my last HDTV wasn't that way, but it was a no name brand that really wasn't very good, but not bad for my first one). Well, I ended up getting all of that.
Here is a link to my TV basically. It's 47" LCD by LG, 1080p, 120Hz, etc.
Some of the features are (from Amazon):
Full HD 1080p Resolution
40,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
4x HDMI V.1.3 with Deep Color
24p Real Cinema
AV Mode (Cinema, Sports, Game)
LG SimpLink Connectivity
Invisible Speaker System
USB 2.0 (JPEG, MP3)
Some may think wow, I paid all that money for this TV. Well, that's not really true. I will admit since my family and I are cheap, I got a display model (but worked fine), which only lacks its manual (which I can get online). I was actually going to get a 42" Sharp Aquos there for $850. We tried to get the price down on it since it lacked a remote. The salesman tried finding the remote, but could not on any Sharp TV at the store (even tried checking the back and everywhere). So the salesman offered to take $50 off of a 47" LG bringing it down to $900 (It was originally marked at $1600, but offered the huge discount due to being opened box and such). So I ended up going with it. But that's not the only deal. Since we are in the process in my household of replacing most all old TVs (we have a ton in my household), we also saw a 42" 720p LG TV (similar to mine in a way, but not 1080p and 60Hz) for $600 (It was originally $900 something, I forget). So the salesman was asked what kind of discount would be had by getting two TVs. Well, they were really wanting to sell TVs today, they marked off another $100). So two TVs added up were $1400. Only thing both lack is the original box and manual, but work really great.
Oh course I wanted a Sony HDTV, but it was tough getting one for the price I wanted. I considered Samsung too, but I didn't get one for the same reason (and some of them had the glossy screen, which makes it feel too much like a plasma). I tend to stick to Toshiba, but only one local store had the one with 120Hz. The deal offered to me on a 46" Toshiba (which was 1" smaller and no 120Hz) was just over $1000 (for the open boxed display model). But LG products have been good to me (I've always used LG phones, have an LG refrigerator, etc.), so I went with it.
I know my HD cable box is in a strange position, along with other things (right now I'm still in the process of re-organizing my room for the TV. I probably won't finish until this weekend since I'll be busy tomorrow). Unfortunately, my Wii component cable isn't long enough to hook it to my TV, so I might have to place my Wii somewhere else (or maybe just hook it up to an SDTV). Haven't tried my 360 yet on my TV, but will later on (my 360 has no HDMI). My PS3 was already tested and looks great. I need more blu-rays to get a better test (I might return Halo 3 (unopened) and buy a blu-ray, but I dunno).
This should be my final HDTV I finally stick to for a while (unlike my other two which lasted 8 months, then the next for just over a year), since it will be perfect for my apartment in the very near future (I've been in the planning stages of getting a larger HDTV for my place, for a long time). Overall I'm pretty happy with the TV and feel the deal was good enough.
