i need help picking out a TV?
i want to buy a 29-37 (preferably 32) inch TV that has Internet Apps; (maybe 3D); at LEAST an 80,000:1 contrast ratio, (maybe 120 Hz or more, but I'm not very picky as long as there is no flicker on the image); and 1080p full HD.
i found many models rounding at about $900 (without 3D, of course), little pricey huh?
1) picture-wise, what is the difference between "back-lit LED", and "edge lit LED" and is there any other technology i have not heard of yet (NOT including back projection of a projector)?
2) which would be the best choice LED, LCD, or Plasma, (of if cheap, small and light enough,
back projection DLP)?
(i don't really care about efficacy, but i do want one with a good lifespan; really bright colors
(like led or plasma) and good contrast, and has deep "black" blacks; hopefully 1080p, but
ill settle for 720p, less than 8 ms response time; has a great viewing angle; and last and
certainly not last, one that is under the $1600.00 price tag!)
3) whats the difference in the picture quality with edge-lit-LED and back lite-LED? (i know the led
placement in each corresponds with the type of led tv it is.)
right now, i have a 19 inch CRT 4:3 aspect ratio (i am guessing 480p res) the TV itself is a
"CurtisMathes-Tronics" brand (i never heard of it) (model # "CM 19022S"). its OK. it works, but its getting too small for me, and after i bumped into some money last summer ($700) at the peek and i am thinking saving for a "state of the art" HDTV! next year, with my summer job, i should have $1500 to spend.
