I am starting to look into buying a new TV. What I want out of my new TV... 50"-60" LED/LCD 3+ HDMI Outputs Optical Audio Output 120 Hz + refresh rate 1080p Price range: $1200 or less What I'm really not interested in... 3D capability Smart TV / built in apps Internet connectivity USB connectivity (though it wouldn't hurt) So as you can see, I'm basically just looking for a nice quality, no frills, "dumb" TV, fairly large size, good amount of outputs, and it has to be LCD. 55" is pretty ideal considering my living room set up, but I would be OK going a few inches smaller or bigger if the price is right. Here is the TV I have been looking at... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009H8JOZS/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER This pretty much hits the sweet spot of price/quality/size. Though I would be interested in a similar TV without the smart TV function and a little bit smaller in size if it is a good enough deal. I would prefer to buy off of Amazon to avoid sales tax. I found a comparable 55" Vizio at my local Wal-Mart for $868...but after 5.5% sales tax, it seems like a better idea to just spend the extra $100 and get this decked out 60". I'm not at all married to the idea of getting a Vizio. I would be open to any brand. I've just been looking at this one because it seems to fit all my criteria, it's at a great price point, and the Amazon reviews have been largely positive.
