Help Me select the Best 1080p LCD HDTV for the PS3 from these 6.

26 replies 2 views Edited Jan 10, 2007
I have been researching some 1080p lcd hdtv's...I haven't looked at DLP's yet, but will do that next. Plasma's are out due to burn in from game HUD's and that kind of thing.

help me chose the best one overall deal and the best for the PS3 (keep in mind I have a PS2, XBOX 360 and possibly getting a Wii at some point):

SAMSUNG - LN-S4095D 40-IN LCD TV with ATSC Built-In Tuner

SAMSUNG - LN-S4096D 40-IN Wide HDTV with Integrated DCR Tuner

SHARP LC-42D62U 42-IN HDTV AQUOS Liquid Crystal Television

SONY KDL-40V2500 40-IN BRAVIA LCD Television

...and the most likely the best, but not sure if I can afford it...
SHARP - LC-46D62U 46-IN HDTV AQUOS Liquid Crystal Television

SONY KDL-40XBR3 40-IN BRAVIA XBR LCD Flat Panel HDTV

I would probably go with the Bravia between those 4.  But for the actual money you are spending you could get a huge 61" 1080p Samsung DLP and still have money left over.
 
PS3 60GB
Kenwood 5.1 Surround
Samsung 50" DLP 720P (No Burn In Baby and No Dead Pixels!)
Westinghouse 42" LCD 1080p (Got Lucky - No Dead Pixels!)

If you are considering an RPTV I would go with an LCOS based set not DLP, LCOS does not suffer from the rainbow effect and is the better technology of the 2.  As far as the LCD's you mentioned the Braiva has the best picture clarity, but the Sharp has a faster response time...

Those were my choices.  I got the Sammy 4095d at CC because it pwns.  And because I used a pricematch for $1659 with the 10% off the difference thing.  Woot, 1080p

Also if you got a 360, then get a Sammy because it can do 1080p over component unlike those Sony's.

YOU CAN DO 1080P with Component Cables.  Your TV just needs to support it.

Make sure to check the LCD's pixel response time.  Get something that has a low response time.  You'll see pixelation and ghosting if it's not good enough.
