I'm pretty much a n00b to the HT scene. I'm contemplating buying my first "Nice TV" for my HT I'm building. I've got a few lingering questions which I can't seem to figure out. I watch TV/movies/and play console games (PS2 & xbox). Now I've read lots of places that if you play video games you shouldn't get a RPTV due to possible burn-in. I also want to get a widescreen TV - how will video games turn out on a widescreen (ie: will you see black bars on the side)? Since I do play video games should I write off all possibilites of getting a RPTV? Is it true that RPTVs will almost always give a picture NOT as clear as direct view TVs (I'm talkin' only HDTVs here)? I've always been told that Sony makes the BEST TVs, but I've read some good stuff about Toshibas here on this forum, I've been basically debating between these 2 brands. The most important thing for me is picture quality. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, some suggestion on models would be great. I'm looking for at least 36" TV, up to max of mid 50" (this is for my bedroom). Price wise the Max I'm lookin' to spend is around $3000 US (must be HDTV and preferrably widescreen though I have thought about the sony XBRs). Thanks guys for helpin' out a n00b, LOL!
