Hey guys,

My friend is looking to buy a HDTV for his NYC apartment. As you know, Nyc apartments are tiny (well atleast the one taht my friend could afford) so he needs a 40-42 inch FLAT PANEL TV!!

Ofcourse in terms of price, would prefer not to pay above 2200$; so any ideas on which to go with??

In that size range, Plasma is going to cost less than LCD.

Yup, I was also looking at Cnet and AVSforums to see what would be a good cheap bet.

----------- -> Dell 42in

There are problems w/ black colors on this; so your movies might not be as good !! still a good deal overall

----------- --> Vizio 50in

This has good reviews; but no Cable Card; or HD Tuner -> so basically you wlil need your cable box to work with this !! eitherways you are going to have cable box; so might not be a bad deal to consider.

On the CostCo. website, there was also Sceptre; but I heard that its a good Computer LCD but makes a bad TV !!

So any ideas of which would be a good one to go with?

ya I just noticed that too. And people in the AVS forums were saying that for around 200-2400 the best thing to go with would be to try and get Panasonic 42px60U --> they were sayihng thast a damn good deal!!

any stores taht I can go find in NYC?
