Need help finding a HDTV that meets my requirements!

Posted by marcydc (My Page) on

I need thin... Like 1-1.5" max. It's side is visible from the kitchen.

I don't want huge - 42" is probably the biggest we can do.
Need 1080p and 240hz if LED or whatever hz if plasma.
Don't need 3D.

I can't find a TV that's thin and not BIG.

Any suggestions? I've gotten so much help on the kitchen forums, I thought I'd try here!

The TV itself is thin. Bases and/or wall mounts are what will stick out. So, it's all in how you mount it.

We've already installed the in the wall type mount so it will be really flush to the wall. Need a TV that is not 3"+ without the stand. Would like its depth to be .9-1.5" like the big LED's (and a couple of plasma's).

Would like to spend < $1300 too.

Oh, and it needs a good wide viewing angle too since it's in an area that will be seen from both the kitchen and family room.

You may just have to go down to Best buy or Costco or another store with a variety of models and check the sizes on them all.

Have you tried a Samsung plasma? They make one model that is about an inch thick.

Don't understand your 240 Hz "requirement". The 240 Hz scan idea came about because it's a common denominator that can be used for the multiple frame rate display of video at 60 Hz and film at 24 Hz (frame rate). Why do you need that for a 42" television you may see from the kitchen? In every other aspect you have a ton of choices available.

We ended up ordering the samsumg plasma in the 1 inch thick variety.

y.b. the 240hz requirement came from my DH who saw the diff between 120 and 240 at best buy. But in reality, i think the plasma beats that anyway for not blurring fast action and messing with the viewing angle.
