My dad wants to get a 42 inch tv around the 500$ price range. He isn't looking for anything too fancy, I would just like to know what would be the best options.
I have looked at the differences between LCD, LED, Plasma, and I really can't decide. All the info I have found is biased.
I really don't know much about tvs, but I would like to find something that has good colour, good blacks, and a tv you can view at all angles. The room it will be in is not terribly bright, only a slight bit of sun gets in.
I figure you guys would be the best to decide, I don't think he really cares if it is 720p or 1080p, but if 1080p can be found in the price range, it is a plus.
I still use the old CRTs so I have no idea. It's my dad, he doesn't want 3d or anything like that, just a great tv.
"The other versions will disappear. Even the 35 million tapes of Star Wars out there won’t last more than 30 or 40 years. A hundred years from now, the only version of the movie that anyone will remember will be the DVD version [of the Special Edition], and you’ll be able to project it on a 20’ by 40’ screen with perfect quality. I think it’s the director’s prerogative, not the studio’s to go back and reinvent a movie." - George Lucas
