I forgot to mention Emerson which is the manufacturer that got me started on this with there discount.
I am in the market for a new TV to be used very sparingly ( for when I am on my treadmill - in the summer rarely, in the winter more often) Quality of picture is not a major issue because I tend to watch MSNBC, CNN CNBC and Fox news.,and in the Fall I tend to watch some football games. Just need something to watch to keep myself from getting bored while on the treadmill. In doing a search for TV's in my set price range, I came across the following manufactures most of which I have never heard of. I would appreciate any input on these manufactures, particularly those I should stay away from. They all have TV's in the same size and price range. You may notice that Sony is not listed and that is because I will not have anything to do with Sony since their rootkit fiasco.
