I finally talked my dad into getting a new TV for my living room. The problem is neither of us know anything about the newer HDTVs. I've been researching a little bit, and I have most of the lingo down, I would just like some input from real people instead of people just trying to sell their product. We are looking at spending around $800-$1300 on a nice TV. No bigger than 42". If anyone could help me out or give me some brands to watch out for, it would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks!

Welcome to the 21st century. Try a Vizio. They are realatively cheap and have a nice picture to them.

We got a 32" Panasonic Flatscreen for right at $800, and it's got a real nice picture. Can't remember the model at the moment, but I'll take a look when I get home if you're interested.

I've got a 24" Acer monitor. The BEST quality of anything of similar size that I've seen -- AND the lowest price. Not sure about their larger TVs, but I'd definitely check out Acer for your brand.

I have a 50" Panasonic.

The main reason for my post is that you should also check on what individual inputs/outputs outlets it has. Too me this is important since I run many things through a TV and I don't want to fall short on the input outlets.

Westinghouse makes really good tvs.

That would be my recommendation, although can get pricey..

Oh, I lied. It's actually a Samsung, as one guy mentioned are pretty quality.
And with what slinky was saying about input/output options, it's got TWO component inputs, on top of a bunch of others, including a VGA input for your computer. Not a bad choice.
