Wow... so many still buying regular LCD TVs, I suspect this is the case because they are so affordable :)

Not only that, they're good enough for people that don't play a lot of games or don't watch a lot of movies and maybe just watch cable TV. :P

From my untrained eye, I really couldn't see a difference between the LCD's and the LED LCD's, but I could certainly see a difference in the price. The plasmas have a really nice picture, but the reflective glare is too distracting in a room without light control. jmo

I already have a 50" LG 50PK950 about a couple of months ago. It's got a service-only serial port that I'd love to control my TV from my PC, but I couldn't. Mine's used as a PC monitor.

HTPC: AMD Athlon X2 4050e CPU with 780G ATX motherboard running Windows 8 DP (4GB) and Ubuntu; Server: AMD AII X2 240e CPU with 880G-based ATX motherboard running Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS (8GB)

2 pairs of Insignia NS-B2111s (front/rear), Pioneer SP-C21 Center Speaker, and 12" Velodyne Sub

Just ordered HP Pavilion dv7-6165us from QVC. Will have it by next Friday.

I don't actually have a TV anymore. I used to have one but the colors were getting really ugly and hence I do have a PC, there is no reason to buy one at the moment. In case I would actually need one I would go for a rear-projection TV.

I already have a Samsung SyncMaster P2270HD 22" in my room as a part of my dual monitor and a TV.

I got a 50" LG plasma from amazon for $650 totally worth it for the price. Cant go wrong with the new plasmas the technology finally caught up so there is no burn in on the screens amazing contrast, 600hz, and the life of the plasma panel is over 20 years unless a board or chip goes I will be watching tv on it for a longgg time.

No tv for me. I did replace my four year old LG 22" LCD with a 24" Acer G245H LCD monitor though. It's a glossy screen and looks really great. As with all Acer stuff though, it feels really cheap.

I got a 37" 1080p LCD Visio for $350 I really like it, it has no issues

My uncle got a 60+ inch Plasma a few weeks ago!

I got a TV wall mount for my TV lol! I also got a TV stand for the blu-ray, etc. It's for a Sharp Aquos Quattron if that counts as a vote.

Really nice TV. The LCD and the LED actually use the same LCD panel. Only difference is the lighting method behind it. LED is cooler and should last for a very long time. Plus is far more energy efficient. Hence the cooler temps. The more uniform lighting does help the image pop more though.

Its different enough to be a new game, but it is similar to the 64 game.

It starts in the exact same place as the 64 Goldeneye.

Those 3D TVs are coming down in price. The Sony 40-inch HX800 model is equivalent to the ex710 and nx700 counterparts.
I'll probably get one this year some time.

I had an ALBA 32" LCD TV from my parents, I love the TV, the picture quality is so 'crisp' I don't really care it's not LED, already have an LED monitor for my PC so the TV is for the consoles and... watching TV =P

"Maximum, Game".

No TV for me and I didn't want it anyway. I don't care about 3D and my old TV (with PAL resolution ^^) is still good enough.
The ponly downside is that the TV has no HDMI so I think I will need a new TV somewhen when I get a new console.

Wanted to get a 3d LED Samsung Series 7 40inch but all the Retail stores in my Area had sold out. DoH.

HEY RODNEY! The link in your video is wrong, and on this poll it says I have already voted but I haven't. Something wrong?

I didn't get a TV, but my brother gave my 7 year old his old Advent TV and his old DVD/VHS combo and a stand. I hooked it up in his bedroom (after many hours of thinking about it, didn't really want him to have a TV in his bedroom) and he is thrilled. So in a way I did get a TV.

Where's the poll!?!!
Well I didn't, although my parents wanted one but didn't buy one. I was on top of all the deals. 40" HDTV 1080p around $700, 55" little over $1000, 3D TV little under $1500. Samsung 40" 120hz HDTV $764, Even 22" HDTV $300 and below(Some were actually 1080p)

When I saw a 55" inch for less then 1500 I tried to tell Rodney because he mention he was looking for a larger TV. I don't care for the TV, my cable doesn't even have cartoons anymore so I never use it. I'd rather replace my TV with a 3D monitor or two.

There's the poll, I was an early bird.

When people lose sight, they pray for better vision. Even though the path of ignorance was their choice, they believe it to be an outer entity like karma or bad luck - in thus believing an outer cause will cure it. You want change? Stop throwing dirt in your eyes to attain mercy for looking weak.
