Can you help an Army soldier currently in Afghanistan? I am having a really hard time browsing Google results because my net connection is so slow. I am trying to look for a 42" LCD TV (I heard plasma was not the way to go) for my wife while I am here. I know some of the numbers, like at least if not over 1:1000, less than or equal to 8ms, etc. However, where is the cheapest place to buy? What brands should i steer clear of? I definately want it HDTV. (not ready and you have to buy all kinds of crap. just ready out of the box) Thanks for the help. It was hard enough (1 hour) just between registering here, checking the email and activating the account.
