Also, FYI, NO INPUT LAG whatsoever AND it has technology that emulates 120Hz. Not that I've needed it. But...still...a lot for the price package.

If you don't mind refurbished, this is a deal. http://www.consumerdepot.com/product...referer=google

If you want 120Hz.

I'd stay away from Samsung if I were you. They still have some problems with their capacitors failing.

That's a misnomer to say it doesn't have input lag. It does, but it's considerably less than other televisions.

This appears to be a good deal on a Bravia as well. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Bravia-KD.../dp/B001T9N0D0

Might want to look it up.

EDIT: Also, I don't know much about Philips LCDs, but this is cheap and has good specs. http://www.amazon.com/Philips-32PFL6.../dp/B001RPOCD8
If Philips is still any good...

I have a week left to spend $25 at tigerdirect. Any ideas?

They're still good in Europe, but they started outsourcing their televisions in the United States to Funai. Not a company known for reliability.

Well, I don't notice any playing xbox. I can definitely notice on my friend's Vizio.

It really is basically zero on our Samsung. 0.01 ms.

Anything under 8 is good though.

Its very nice. Overpriced normally though. We got it for like $1100 at Sears brand new.

EDIT: If you are still up, turn the olympics on. They're doing Super G and everyone keeps getting owned by this one turn. Its pretty weird.

One reason why I am still thinking about the Toshiba is because it's from a seller I know and trust. I don't know much from Amazon's third party sellers.
I am currently waiting for the stores near me to put up their weekly ads to see if they did any price drops.

EDIT - Damn, it looks like the PS3 are still selling like hotcakes. I can't seem to find it from anywhere near me.
