My Boy Scout son has to do the research for "a major family purchase" to earn a particular merit badge. As a result, he's in charge of coming up with 3 choices for a 46-inch flat screen TV. And since he's not writing the check, I capped the purchase at around $1200 or so (negotiable if the reasoning is sound). Taken directly from his prepared notes, here's what he came up with, based mostly on Consumer Reports and assorted on-line rankings: 1. Sharp Aquos LC46LE, $1080 (LED/LCD 120Hz, subwoofer) 2. Sony KDL46EX620, $1170 (LED backlit, 120Hz) 3. Vizio SV472XUT, $1300 (LED/LCD, 240Hz, 47-inch) One requirement (other than price) is good sound out of the box; I don't want to purchase a separate system. ALL the pictures on today's HDTV's look dynamite to me, so I suspect all of the above will be more than adequate, picture-wise. Personally, I'd choose a great-sounding TV with a good pic over poor sound/great pic. I've done no research on my own -- hence this post -- nor have I been to the depths of tit-for-tat comparisons. But I'm pretty sure I don't want plasma (we move more than most), and I'm intrigued by LED TVs (are there LED-only TVs of this size?). Don't need 3D, either. But it's time to NOT be the one CRT-only household in the 'hood. Before we hit the stores (he's chomping at the bit!), I'm hoping to get some advice from The Collective, to include any obvious choices he may have missed. Thanks in advance for any advice!
