Default Comments on my potential new HDTV

Allright, i'm buying a HDTV. My mind is quite set on certain details : i don't care about 3d, i want lcd and at quite a low price (sub 900$)

I've found the Philips 46PFL5505 : Philips - 5000 series TV ACL Téléviseur numérique HD*1080p de 46*po - 46PFL5505D/F7 - Série*5000 - Téléviseurs - Son et image

I can have it for 699$.

What are your thoughts?

First, try to find online reviews for this tv. I think you might be better off purchasing a 120hz tv instead of the 240hz. If you prefer lcd to plasma, you might have to go with a cheaper brand tv such as vizio, insignia etc., to reach that price. $1000 taxes in for a 120hz name brand tv such as toshiba, sony, sharp, lg etc., is the route I'm going to take. I'm pretty sure I'll be happy with my choice. If your budget is $699, I'd go plasma for the size you want.

I actually found a couple of 46'' LCD tvs for 700-900$, 120hz and 240hz. Sony, Panasonic, LG and Philips. All those in this price range have good reviews, so i cannot see why should i go plasma or pay for a generic brand. Thanks the for feedback!

Looks like a great tv, I never really got into the whole 120Hz vs 240Hz deal, I couldn't tell a difference between the two only thing I noticed was slight lag in games using a plasma to a LCD. The LCD was faster overall even though they had rated them at the same response time (5ms). So yea LCD ftw :D
