Challenge: Best 42"+ HDTV for 600-800?
I need an HDTV. Our old Sony tube is nice, but the resolution is not. That being said, we have several problems to address:
Leaving the television on happens from time to time, sometimes with a static image. Any sets with chance for burn-in = BAD. Our old Sony is dated, but it can handle static images with no problem. I want a new set that is free of this added worry if possible.
We have kids. One of them is 20 months old. He loves to push buttons and touch things. Anything with a glass front is a plus. A raw LCD screen (or plasma?) scares me a bit. We aren't going to let any item throwing happen near the set, but I'm still worried about touching.
Built-in tuner is a big plus.
42" or bigger is my aim.
I saw a 42" and 46" plasma listed here by Panasonic recently, but reviews stated the colors were washed out. That combined with my fear of burn-in, and I didn't bite.
Anyone have specific model suggestions / links? Any key words to look out for as I search on my own?
