So the girlfriend and I moved recently, and we'd like to upgrade our boob tube from the 32 inch Vizio I've had for years. I don't know much about TVs to be honest, so I was hoping you guys might be able to make some recommendations.
I'd like a 40 or 42" ideally, budget is around 500. Don't really plan on getting a blu ray player anytime soon, but I do have an Xbox that I probably spend too much time with . The only other consideration that I guess might come into play is that the living room is pretty sunny-don't know if that affects whether it should be an LED, plasma, etc.
Don't particularly care about more advanced features like 3D or being wifi enabled. Really just looking for a solid picture and no input lag when playing games. What do you dudes recommend?
I find the only thing I don't like about 40"+ TVs is the refresh rate is usually 120hz vs. 60hz so it looks kind of wonky/unnatural.
My first recommendation is always Samsung since I've had the same one for 5 years and it's looked great since day one, but Vizios aren't bad by any means.
