    My father has decided he finally wants to breakdown and purchase a widescreen tv. He asked me to do the research for him. He would like it to be no more than $3000 tax included. Size wise we only have room for a tv that is around 36"-40". We were both thinking that flatscreen and plasma would be nice. I'm not familiar with widescreen televisions and any help would be very much appreciated.

    Here is my 2 cents - From what I have heard, plasmas have the potential for burn-in and their life expectancy isn't as long as LCDs. I'm sure there are people out there willing to dispute this concept. While I love the pictures and concept of the plasmas, in the end when I'm getting ready to spend $3000 on a TV, I'd want to know that what I'm buying is going to last me for a long while and there aren't any chances for phospurs to poo and this and that...

    Anywho, I came across the Sony KDFWE655 42" Grand WEGA (HD integrated) for $2499 at Best Buy ($2000 online through OneCall, shipped.) I believe this to be THE television I will purchase in the very near future. IMO, I think the TV has one of the best pictures out there (between CC, Best Buy and Fry's). It's 15" deep so it won't take up a whole lot of depth.

    For what it's worth, I am suggesting you go look at this TV and see what you think.
