Default Cheap LCD TV recommendation

hey all,

I'm looking to buy the cheapest TV of reasonable quality* that is at least 40". Currently, this is my pick: Toshiba 40" 1080p LCD HDTV, 2 HDMI, 1 USB, Gaming and Native Mode (40E220U), Toshiba HDTV, SIG Electronics. I intend to pick it up at a local computer shop/Best Buy and just get it pricematched. Actually, I intend on picking up TWO of them ;D.

*quality = durability + features + picture quality

I'm not too sure how TVs actually differentiate; features like DLNA, 120Hz, 3D, thinness have no appeal to me and I refuse to pay extra for them (if 2 TVs share the same price, and one has an extra feature, then I would still take it, of course). Super high-end visual quality is not something that's important, just as long as it's reasonable. A feature I need is wall-mounting for one of the TVs; I am willing to get a different model for the other unit.

Is there anything wrong with this set? or is there a cheaper set? is there a better quality set at the same price?

My System Specs


I have had a Toshiba 32" for 3 years now, and it is completely reliable.
my only issue is the size of the bezel and the thickness (depth) of the unit. it is mounted on the wall, and stands out quite a bit.

Newegg offers some good cheap monitors that are actully pretty good.
Newegg.com - Refurbished: Seiki 40" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV LC-40G81
Newegg.com - Sceptre 40" Class (38.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV X408BV-FHD
Newegg.com - Proscan 40" 1080p 60Hz LED-LCD HDTV PLED4011A
As long as it it a 1920 x1080 or Full HD they work very good.I used to buy seperate monitors just for my computer until one day I hooked up my LG 50" Plasma and the games looked great .
