I know this has been a topic before. Guys I am in the market for a new TV want to keep it between $2000-$2500. Looked at Plasma, 3D, LCD and LED. What would be the best TV for the money? TIA guys would be is my basement and be used for sports, movies and gaming.
You can get a bad ass TV for $2,500. I would look at Sharp Aquos TV's.
for one thing that is a ton of money these days, You can get a sick smart TV that is in the 55-65 inch range for cheaper
Maybe in the 1500 range
And I would go LED, its the best and longest lasting
Just make sure no matter what you go smart TV
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
LED for sure. No sense in not getting the smart TV with the way things are going. You can pretty much get the best TV out there for that price range.
Plasma and 3-D are worthless, IMO.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Thanks guys I would love to to keep it under that the wife gave me a 2500 limit. If I can get a great TV for for 1500 would be great. Thanks again guys.
FWIW, my in-laws just got a 62 inch Samsung smart-tv from Costco for $1,200.
For $2500 I would get 2-55" smart led tv's. That would be good.
$2500 for a TV is nuts now a days.
Time and change will surely (truly) show
How firm thy friendship ... OHIO!
Eh, I don't know about the whole smart TV thing. Between my Xbox and my Mac Mini, both of which are hooked up to my TV, I rarely if ever use any of the smart functions. If you don't have anything hooked up then go for it.
Well that is because you have the smart capabilities on another machine
I'd much rather have the smart function on my TV though, more hard drive space and it doesn't burn up my xbox
Just bought this in Dec for $1800, thing is SaaWEEET!!!!

LG, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, and Vizio (yes, Vizio) are all winners IMO. Can't go wrong with any of them.
Plasma are not worthless, you're nuts if you think that.
Also, get a $1500 TV and spend $1000 on surround sound
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
She's given you a $2500 budget? Buy a great TV for $1500. Spend the extra grand on something for her. Then enjoy the looking at the top of her head while you enjoy your new flat screen.
I got 51" Samsung smart tv and use it for Netflix, HBOGo, streaming movies, etc. I have a PS3, but would rather just use my tv remote.
Get a Panasonic Plasma and call it a day. Plasma has the best picture quality of all current technologies and is generally the cheapest. Anyone on here who says otherwise doesn’t know what they are talking about. Google "best tv ever made" and see what you find (it's a plasma). In your price range check out the link below. Sound and Vision named the Panny Plasma their product of the year last year. They just announced their new line up at CES earlier this month so if you wait a bit you can get an old model for much cheaper. The only real improvements as far as I could tell in their new line up is improved smart technologies. I don’t care much for those anyway, I just use an apple tv. Only $100.

All the 2013 models are being introduced/previewed now. So you can get a great deal on an older model as the stores are reducing their inventory of those now or you can wait a few months as the new models hit the shelf. The one I'm personally waiting to see is the one linked below.
For your price range you can score a great tv. I would start with knowing about the room it is going in. How big should it be based on seating distance? What is the lighting like in the room? Besides great picture, do you need other features from your television? Answer those questions properly and the tv you need becomes much easier to choose.
The Sony W900 Internet TV is so realistic, you might forget you?re watching TV thanks to X-Reality PRO technology presented on the TRILUMINOS display with Dynamic Edge LED backlighting.
Vizio 47" LCD 3d HDTV. Fantastic picture, best 3d for the money (although I rarely use it), hdmi, and Internet capable.
The best part is, for $2500 you can buy 4 of them.
They break or burn out far too fast, and yes nowadays the technology is outdated and pretty much worthless
I would never buy a plasma TV
Plasma still provides the best picture quality. And no, they don't break out burn out as quickly. They've really improved the longevity of plasma.
People counting out plasma I think assume just because its the oldest technology that its the worst. Not the case at all.
Its certainly the best picture quality for sports, gaming, and fast moving scenes.
Not the new plasmas. I have a two year old Sammy plasma in the bedroom. Amazing pic.
That's not true and you have no clue what you're talking about.
