Re: Time for a new TV.. Need advice.

+1 on everything above - then I did the unexpected and just bought a TV because it was cheap. Samsung 450 Series at a local store. I didn't look at spec's - I just looked at the connectors and how thick(thin) it was and how cheap can I get it. About a 5min process. BTW, is it me or does 720p look much better than 1080i...? 1080i looks smeared.

The Samsung looks great and fits an exercise room perfectly.

...this is coming from the guy who spent 3months researching before dropping a bit on a Kuro Pro-141FD.

That's to be expected, you bought a 720p TV.

Agreed, it does accept 1080i/p signals but I did not expect it to display differently, but it does. I've never had a 720p before, they've all been 1080p. It's a mid-200.00 Samsung. I didn't look at anything other than HDMI-CHECK, THIN-CHECK, CHEAP-CHECK. Hung it, plugged it in... works. Thx

I don't have any problem with 1080i on my 720p Samsung LN32C350D1D (2 years old)...it looks just fine.
