I'm going to use it for mostly movies, a little tv and ps3 and I'd like to hook my computer up to watch movies and also possibly use it as a second monitor for gaming if I can find a keyboard/mouse/cables that are long enough. I didn't mention it before but I'd like to stay close to $800 or so. Is there any brands I should avoid or stick to for quality, user interface, technology etc.
I'm looking at buying a TV for my apartment and I'm trying to figure out what features I need and what ones I can skip. I'm looking for something in the 46-50" range.
I'm considering Plasma and LCD, LED is kind of out since they're a lot more expensive and from what I've heard the picture isn't much better since they are all the side lit models. I'm not to concerned with the thickness of the TV as long as it's not DLP.
I'm going to use a PS3 as my Blue Ray player so is there any benefit to getting a unit that has an Ethernet port in the back? Would that mean that the tv is newer and has a better picture?
Also 3d seems pretty expensive and lacking content so do I want to spend the extra money on a set with 3d capability or should I just wait a few years and get that on my next tv when it's cheaper?
