Hi CP--I just wanted to let you know that I think Samsung makes great flat screen TVs. Everyone in my family has one and we all love them.
Good to know! I am off to look at PC Richards and Best Buy. I will definitely check out the Samsung.

Buying this doesn't count as a guilty pleasure - I mean it's fine but doesn't give me a thrill. I like watching tv (too much) but only pretty things get me excited. But I am truly grateful that I can afford it!

Can you educate us?? All I know is I'm supposed to avoid plasma...for some reason...even tho, I prefer the look of a plasma image and they are cheaper.

Plasmas used to have an issue with images burning in the screen. Not so much anymore and most have a white wash feature if you do get some burning.

Still a much better picture then LCD.

If you're a big movie/sports watcher, LED is a fantastic picture. A little pricier though if your just watching regular TV.

I'm going to buy Samsung - thank you Curlswirl.

I have to buy something 25" width (not the screen, the entire tv width) or less.

It narrowed down to Toshiba vs. Samsung and Samsung gets better reviews (incl. Curlswirl LOL).

Does anyone know if I should get the "protection plan" or is that a ripoff? Choices, choices, choices! I feel like a ditz. Not sure what a ditz is, but I feel like one.

Get the Samsung CP! I only buy a protection plan if the electronic purchase is very expensive. My guess is the TV won't be that expensive. I saw a Samsung LED 22" for $150 at PCRichard.com ! It was tempting to me What size TV are you buying?
Either the 22" or a 26 & 3/8ths inch one. I didn't see a 22" at Best Buy or PC Richard, but that would fit perfectly if I can find it. The 26 & 3/8ths is just a hair bigger than the Sharp I have now, at 25 and my fear is that I would knock into it and knock it down, but probably not.

I have to see if I can locate the 22".

Thanks so much for the great advice about the protection plan! Excellent help - much appreciated!

I'll let you know what I get.

CP--I am not sure if you can get this great price on the Samsung at the store. You might need to buy it online. But sometimes stores do a pricematch if they have it in stock.

Keep in mind though, that BluRay and HDMI make a HUGE difference. Stores will set up their pricier TVs with those so they look best. Easy to recreate that picture at home

The only down falls for a plasma are the glass screen. If you're a day time TV watcher, in a sunny room the glare can be annoying and if you have kids prone to throwing things, you can shatter the screen where the others may just scratch.

I bought the Samsung 29" (diagonal screen size). It is 26" across so it will just fit. I have to wait until it is set up but I'm excited.

I haven't bought a new tv in about 15 years.

This thread is timely. Jim and I are planning on buying a flat screen for the living room. 50" maybe if not larger. We are also talking about getting a small one for the kitchen, maybe 19". This guy is so addicted to sports and can't miss a game.

Glad you got your tv CP! Enjoy.....

What CC said is true. Plasma *used* to have a large problem with image retention. It could ruin your picture if you didn't burn in the tv properly. Even though that has been improved, you can still get image retention, but it won't last as long. It is still recommended that you break/burn in your plasma for 150-200 hours, to make sure you have no issues. You can do that by getting burn images, which is just hours of a color slide show, or by watching regular tv that does not contain letter box or static images. That is a little tricky, considering that most networks leave their annoying logo on the screen 24-7 now. You are also asked to avoid playing video games, again especially ones with static images like a health bar, etc, for the first 200. You basically just need to turn your tv on at night and let it go, for a week.

As CC said, plasmas have glass screens and they are not as good in bright rooms. They are made for more dark locations. They also run hotter, and are not as energy efficient. When you have the tv calibrated properly (which you can have professionally done by the store you buy it from (sometimes for free) or look up the settings yourself provided by some videophile guru's. it's breeze), the picture is hands down the best. They have the truest blacks, and most realistic picture, BUT LED is just as good imo. I ended up going with the Samsung LED, 3D, Smart TV. I love it!! I didn't have to worry about breaking it in, I could go straight to my video games, and watch movies letter box if need be.

LED can still have it's own issues. You'll get flash lighting in the 4 corners with some, but mine has been perfect. I had been planning on going big or going home. Lol. Glad I did.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Ultimately, the thing that won me over, was the style. The Samsung I got has this fine, silver, frame. It's all screen, and beautiful. I just had a feeling Plasma wouldn't be the best for me either. I am a heavy gamer, though they have greatly improved in that area.

It was perfect for me at that time. As they advanced, I made up my mind that I wanted 3D, and something a little bigger, but only when mine died. Not before! I watch a ton of tv, and am a huge movie buff, so it's a good investment. And a fun new toy!!

Yippee - wonderful TV! Thanks Fifi! it's a little bigger (29") than the one I had before but it seems HUGE. I haven't had a chance to look at more than 10 mins. but tonight I will be goggle eyed.

Bonus, it's sexy! Really great lines on this set. 2nd bonus - I made my apt. extraordinarily neat so my nephew who installed it would be impressed. Wow, my apt. is purty. I feel like a queen.
