A pixel dying and burn in are two different things. That was pretty accurate. When one pixel dies in a LCD it is the size of a pen tip, one pixel. One pixel will be annoying but a warrenty company won't do anything. If they die in a bunch you have a chance of getting a replacement. I forget the percentage but was different percentages for the MAIN viewing area and the sides.
Led TVs were just coming out when I left the field. Led's are supposed to last longer then LCD's...Mitsubishi DLP have better picture quality then Amy plasma or led/LCD but they are not flat so they are history. They ran off a five color wheel and brought colors to life more then three color tv's

Vizios have excellent reviews. They are the most bang for you buck. They are the Hyundai of the flat screen tv world. Highly rated picture quality but less techno bells and whistles. Before you buy, I have seen ads for 60" Sharp Aquos LED for that price. I think Sharp is top tier LED tv maker.

I don't want to embarress myself any more than I normally do but based on everything I have been reading, I need a 60" Backlit, LED and I need to spend between 1200 and 1500 dollars. That's where my investigation is leading me.

Okslim, you can get a nice tv for that price. My vizio was $1300 and probably will go down soon,

Nice,
Where did you get it?

I want to get the one that doesn't have this.

The first tv I ever owned was a GE 13" with rotory knobs. My ex wife left it and my clothes when she cleaned out our house. I remember having cable hooked up and getting shit faced, skipping work and watching Hooper.

plasmas have some issues - burn in and dark room

some are overblown - heat, weight, consumption

but you cannot beat a plasma picture in a dark room.

I have a 8 year old Samsung DLP 1080i 1 HDMI port that I paid $1700 for and has been through 2 bulbs and a color wheel already. I'm looking to upgrade soon. I think I want a big and cheap one without wireless or the apps.

Costco. They give you 90 days to returned and an extra year of warranty.

Whatever HDTV any of you have...
The picture can be properly adjusted perfectly to where you view it, for $29.95.
In ten minutes.

Monster/ISF HDTV Calibration Wizard DVD

How good is it? After a week of 'Goth' pictures, I was ready to take the Vizio back to Costco.
I made a last ditch, final call to the Vizio tech line and, this time, got a guy who actually knew something about what I asked.
With a smile in his voice he said to get the HDTV Calibration Wizard and the problem would be solved.

Drove over to Fry's Electronics, got the product and, yes, I can count the blades of grass stuck in the running back's face guard. In the proper colors.

I use and talk about, but don't sell Amsoil.

2006 Tundra replaced a
98 Dakota 3.9 automatic, long bed.
Retired with broken A/C, July 2008.
623,000 miles.
On original engine and transmission.

That good.

Also. Fork over the moola and get a proper sound system.
Remember the first time you saw 'Top Gun' and your seat shook?
The sound is still there.

^^^ yes that good. You also shouldn't go by the picture quality in the stores. The signal is split so many times it messes with true quality. Also so many people play with the settings and mess them up.
