no kidding. LED is far from the clear winner.

i also think it's funny that ppl think LED is going to replace plasma... like somehow a different backlight can make the LCD panel perfect
I think it's a question of the right TV for the right room. For a bright room with lots of natural light, an LED would be better; for a home theatre in a basement, a plasma.

i don't even think i'd go that far. it's about quality not technology. a GOOD plasma will be better than a cheap led and a good led will be better than a cheap plasma, in pretty much all 'normal' situations.

the trick is to consider it one of many factors.

fellow cheap a$$es..
thoughts on this?

http://forums.redflagdeals.com/bb-insig ... s-1275881/
it's worth a look, but i wouldn't buy it sight unseen. i've been THRILLED with the performance of a couple dynex LCD's i bough a few years ago. but i also have an insignia LED i the bathroom(only 22") and the blacks on it are REALLY bad. overall picture is what you'd expect from the cheapest, no name tv out there.

so, it could be nice. they seem to put more effort into the bigger sets, but i'd definitely want to have a good look at that insignia before i jumped

Hoping for a good 46/7" LED 3D smart tv for around $1500. FS has the LG 47LM9600 on sale right now for $1499 which seems like a decent deal...are there any other tv's in this size/price range I should keep an eye out for?

The Brick has a lg 55" 3d led smart tv for 1300, check page 2 or 3 of their Boxing Day flyer. The price is only for dec 26th.

Hey guys,

if its not, and recommendations for a TV around 40' for 399?

thanks!

hi guys, i know its not much of a deal but im considering buying the Samsung Model: UN32EH4003FXZC 32in 720p 60Hz LED HDTV for FS for $300. I dont need anything bigger that 32" as it is going in our bedroom. It got good review on cnet and id prefer an LED because of the energy saved. ive looked myself and Im still waiting for costco to post their deals but please let me know if theres an even better deal or if a better product out ther for the same price. thanks in advance

how much energy are you planning to save? for a bedroom set, i'd be looking more at the dynex for under 200. i don't think you're saving that much with an LED over an LCD to make up over 100dollar difference.

thanks for responding. i dont mean simply just because of energy savings, but i favor LED over LCD because of energy saved and i know that samsung model got good reviews.

I have a plasma in my living room which does get natural light and the plasma is still the winner over LED. Nothing beats the plasma picture quality

I missed the newegg 42" tv, which was a good deal, but i'm really looking for 47-55" tv. Ideally like newegg, it would not be charging quebec eco-taxes too, as that's about $50 in savings.
