Without question, Samsung is the big dog on the market for HD TVs as of recent. With their LN series TVs, the 61F and 65F are solid picks, and in my opinion, the best overall HD TVs this year. Sony is a second close, with their Bravia series, offering ultra crisp images, but less contrast ratio.
LCDS in particular I think are making a big jump over plasmas, and in my opinion are better than plasmas in terms of picture quality.
I have been researching and looking at HDTVs the past couple of months. First I was originally getting a Sharp Aquos, as I was led to believe that the model line was the best on the market, but then I was introduced to the Samsung models.
Through tedious research, this has been my pick, http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...d_i=B000N4Z42C
Boasting the highest in its class, a 15,000 contrast ratio, with full 1080p HD, for its price, what's not to like? In my opinion best TV of the year. I compared it to the other TVs at Circuit City from far away and without question its blacks were blacker and whites whiter.
But. After checking Samsung's site. I came across their new lineup, their 81Fs. How could they make a jump of 15,000 to 500,000 in just a short time by LED lighting. Is it worth to wait a bit longer for this?
For me the question is hard. Because yes, electronics are the hardest category to buy in, because they always make something better. And continuously waiting to buy the next big thing will yield fruitlessness.
