Yeah.. one thing though you might want to check before buying and it's the view angles. I have Samsung LCD monitor as secondary display and it's pretty much useless for anything else except coding because it has so crappy angles. Even surfing sucks because you have to be exactly at the right spot so colors don't get distorted. Yeah, it had awesome price vs. specs too but didn't check the angles Sad

>angles

There should be some kind of "spec" that tells you this.  I was amazed at the difference between plasma, DLP and LCD in terms of background reflection.  Truly makes plasma a poor man's TV if your background light is too bright since you won't even be able to see anything.

But for LCD I guess the best way to determine acceptable viewable angles is to see one in a store.

Honestly I've seen pretty good angles out of LCDs and less quality at an angle with DLPs.  But thanks for the safety tip Smiley

IF it has high-angle viewing, they do spec it.  I remember seeing it touted on the SONY Bravia.

Something is going on with lcd tv pricing ...it seems to be more than pre-Christmas price jiggering.  I just bought a 2nd Bravia, identical to the one I purchased back in July. Price has dropped 35% since then.

Has anybody actually announced OLED TVs? Last time I read about it they said it was very fucking expensive to produce OLED in big sizes. That's why you haven't seen OLED anywhere else than small displays like Zune HD etc. I think those LED LCD something TVs are coming from other manufacturers than Samsung now so that might be the reason.
