    My POS Best Buy house brand flat screen (3 years old) just puked on me. Any suggestions on what I should get. A 42" is big enough for what I need.

    P.S. In the mean time watching a 13 inch screen leaves a lot to be desired.

    There's a pretty big price range in the 42 inch field that reflects a pretty big range in features.
    Do you care about 3d?
    Do you have a blu-player or plan on getting one?
    Do you have a preference between lcd and plasma?
    What's the most you want to spend?

    This LG is a pretty sweet deal, $499 shipped from Amazon.

    We just got a LG 47" LCD
    I keep hearing about plasma glare and we have lots of natural light in the rec. room.
    So far, so good. This TV had the best picture in the store when it was next to other kinds.

    That's how we picked, although our Panasonic 50" is plasma cuz it's in a darker room. LG 32" LCD in the bedroom.

    Rod , this is family friendly website. Not that there is anything wrong with what you are in the market for, but don't you think another website would be more appropriate for your desires?

    Remember the day when the 13 inch was fairly standard and the 25 inch consoles were the big screens?
    How times have changed!

    The wife isn't interested in my 13" either.

    We get discounts on Sharp and Panasonic thru UPS. I have 5 Sharp flatscreens from 26 to 52 inch and am happy with every one. Between now and xmas they have even bigger sales.

    we have a 32'' sony LCD and after looking around I think our next one will be LED.

    I have a Vizio 32" which I love. I am a big fan of the LG products though I don't have a tv.
