I recently sold my ten year old TV and would like to get a flat panel LCD TV. From what I hear, the manufacturers who led the CRT TV market are behind in the LCD market, namely Sony. I also am hearing LCD is better than plasma or projection. My old TV was a Sony and I never had any problems with it, however I'm open to other brands. I'm looking for advice on LCD TVs--the best brand, what to look for, the best place to buy. Ideally I'd like a 25 to 30-inch model, preferably under $1,500. Thoughts?
