Hi. I have projector and screen, however, I like to keep a flat panel behind it for watching non-movies and it's time to upgrade. I'm looking for something around 46 inches. I'd like to spend no more than $1600- or so. I have all the audio I need as well as Apple TV and I plan to get a Blu-Ray player. I suppose I would like at least 4 HDMI ports. I don't care about internet or 3D. LCD, plasma or whatever, I don't care. I will mostly use it to watch movies (If I don't feel like pulling down the screen) , NBA games etc. I don't play video games. I noticed this Sony on Amazon today: http://www.amazon.co...no_cart_title_1 It lists for $2599- but is 49% off for $1329- Good deal? I'm a little nervous about Sony TV's, I've heard mixed things about newer Sony TV's. Anyone have a good recommendation? I'd like to order direct from Amazon as they have a good return policy.

Without you narrowing things down to a certain technology, this is kind of silly. The possibilities are virtually endless. It's like asking what car to buy.

Well, I'm open to formats. If anyone has a set in the 46-inch range in my price range that proved reliable with a great picture, I'd love to hear about it.

Have you looked at the different TV technologies at Best Buy, etc? If not, you really should do that to see which you prefer. They all have a different look to them.

Depending on what part of the country you live in: Arizona, Utah, Colorado: Ultimate Electronics Washington, Texas, Oregon, Nevada, Indiana, Illinois, Georgia and California: Fry's Electronics, Costco Try some of the specialty home theater stores and new egg and Modia.com, they are located in Texas (http://www.modia.com/) I would look at Samsung, Panasonic and Sony and maybe Mitsubishi and JVC. But I would stay away from LG formally known as Goldstar!
