Samsung vs Sony vs Philps LCD TV !!!

by juancibert / May 12, 2009 6:33 AM PDT


I?m from Argentina and i?m between these 3 lcd tvs for my living room:

1) Samsung LN46A650 1080
Screen Size: 46 inch
Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 50000:1
Pixel Response Time: 4 ms
120Hz refresh rate

2) Sony KLV46W300A 1080
Screen Size: 46 inch
Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 16000:1
Pixel Response Time: 8 ms

3) PHILIPS 52PFL5432/77 1080
Screen Size: 52 inch
Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 7500:1
Pixel Response Time: 8 ms

Samsung tv has a very good design and a great Performance. I think Sony is a little bit old and has a poor design.
Philips tv has the biggest screen size (52 inch) but not so good specifications.
All of them are at the same price here.

So, which is the best one?? should i buy a biggest screen or better contrast, refresh rate and design????

Take note that Samsung is number one now.

I'm no gamer but my older LCD (with older specs) does not give me any issues of blurry fast motion in sports. Others will differ, so you should view enough to determine if those factors are important to you. I I am limited by using a good furniture cabinet what seemed at the time to be enormous, but only will accept a 42" set. Otherwise, with 16:9 ratio, I & many others easily get caught up in the bigger is better notion.

I really would want to view these sets for an hour or so to determine if I preferred one among them. I just can't consider Philips sets to be equal to the best. I'm sure the Sony picture is lovely, but the Samsung has the newest technology.

Choose the set with the best picture.

Size doesn't matter if the picture's fuzzy. What you see in the store may not be what you see in your home so be sure to buy from a reputable dealer who will let you return the set if you're not satisfied.

We took a chance on a Phillips reconditioned TV last year and it is fantastic! We do not have HD. Our son does but his new off-brand HDTV does not have the great picture quality we have. However, Phillips has been sold to a Japanese company so I can't say that this year's sets will be of the same quality. I'd definitely check it out and if you're not happy I'd recommend going with Samsung. Sony quality seems to have gone downhill in the last few years. Our daughter lives in France and most of her friends have Samsung sets and are happy.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
