New tv help
Best buy owes me a new tv with a budget of 1499$
what to choose?
I will be using my wd hd media player hdmi and also my pc gaming tower w hdmi

I need a 40-42in max
Samsung 40" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (UN40C6300)

Sony BRAVIA 40" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV (KDL40EX710)

LG 42" 1080p 120Hz LED HDTV** (42LE5400) - Best Buy Exclusive

I was told these are the 3 best models.
Can i get some opinions and tech specs as to which one is better??

no i didnt have much time to compare them
I see spec wise though the contrast ratio is either mega or 4M to 1.
Not sure what the difference is exactly there.
Also response time seems better on LG 2ms vs 4ms.
Bravia engine for video processing any feedback on that vs the other two??
Also all 3 have ethernet jack but some have wifi w a usb adapter or integrated.
If i wanna wifi stream some avi which would be best has anyone tried this out yet??

I have an older 40" Sony Bravia and a slightly newer 46" Bravia 120Hz. Neither LED. Both have been solid thus far.

Why do you care about Internet connectivity if your PC/WDTV is going to be connected? Either way, WiFi sucks for everything but simple browsing IMO. Wired Ethernet is always my choice.

Are you in the Toronto area? If you are, I'd suggest this place: G&G Electronics - Toronto's Home of the Real Deal if you're buying Sony stuff. Usually better prices than BB/FS/etc. And more personable staff.

its a best buy replacement warranty so it has to go through them :( im in mtl as in my nick...
I guess it will be the sony 40 in then or LG.
I had a samsung before it was ok not great. Also the company has horrible service.

I heard that they are coming out with a new line soon though maybe i should wait.
Arg :(

Any thoughts on response time, contrast ratio, video processing engines or wtv its called motionblur technology..
Anyone try google tv yet?
