planning on getting Olevia 47" 1080p HD LCD TV- 747i-B11, is it worth it?

    i've heard quite a few good things about olevia over the past two years, and i like the price...
    is this the one to go with, or are there better 47"-51" units out there for under $2000?
    (for the record- i won't be watching any tv on it, it will strictly be for upconverted dvd and, eventually, hd/blu ray.)

    there are many better, pick a brand.

    You seem to want to watch reference material but are looking at a LCD panel, why?

    If you want the most accurate image with highest contrast ratios (and best blacks) consider plasma. There are lots of options in your price range.

    Remember that a good 720p panel is much better than a mediocre 1080p one.

    Good luck

    really 50/50 on this one. If you get one hope it doesn't break if it does you'll be out of luck, most tier 3 tvs don't have replacement parts readily available.
