OK - I’ll go way off topic.
I am really in the market for a new, flat panel TV. (My regular tube TV finally gave out.) I really need to get going on this within the next week-and-a-half.
Problem is, I’ve researched for hours on the internet and visited a Best Buy and Circuit City just to see some in person. The whole thing is so complicated that I still don’t know what is what and can’t even begin to make up my mind. It’s overwhelming. There’s a million of them out there, and there are often only subtle differences between two adjacent models in any product line.
The basics: I want LCD; I’m looking at the 46-inch size class; and it has to fit in a cabinet of 45.5 inches width. (Most 46-inch diagonal TV’s I’ve seen will fit in my cabinet.
So - ADVICE! What do you own? Why did you buy it? What were you looking for? What should I look for? What features/parameters are “must-haves” (1080p? HDMI interface? Frequency?). What can I do without (PC interface? Built-in toaster?)
Any audiophiles care to chime in? Thanks!!
