Please help, confused about TVs
We have a 42 inch LG plasma that died yesterday. I need to get a new tv before the Olympics because we are having a gymnastics watching party with my daughter's gymnastics team. We only have one television in our house. Our couches are 12 feet from the television so we were looking at a 50"-55" max tv. It is in our upstairs game room at an angle and that is where the new tv will be. He doesn't want to do the wall mount, just have it on the stand. My husband watches Dallas Cowboys games and wants something good for that. We also watch movies upstairs at night when the kids go to bed on the weekends, when the room is dark. I'm really confused on the whole Plasma vs. LED tv thing. Some sites are saying Plasma is what we need while others say that LED is what we need. I was happy with our tv except a year and a half after we got it a green vertical line showed up where one of the tubes? went out. We just left it like that because it really didn't bother us too much. Due to that, I would rather not go the LG route. Which is better Plasma or LED and what are some of the brands besides LG we should look at?
