Neighbor downstairs has a sams club membership, i have Costco. Costco had a nice Sammy LED but I missed out on the sale ($200+ off!). I keep reading that plasma is still the way to go but back lit LED tvs are just as good. Remember when TVs were easy to shop for and your option was SIZE and BRAND only!?
lol ah yes, the good ol days of, how little can I spend while still getting a tv that'll last a while.

lol read previous page, we've covered this, apparently burn in issues are null and void now, it's the future!

my plasma is not bad for gaming.    there's all sorts of burn in protection built in to the tv.         from white screening it to multi color screens that pop on, to also the big one for me, is the screen will move a pixel or 2 from time to time, however i set it.          you guys know how much i game, and i've had NO burn in problems.

burn in for plasma.... that's so mid 2000's... ;)

i've been silently looking at TV's too i just don't want my wife to know (i'm actually whispering in my head while i type this) looking at the Samsung PN63C8000 plasma. but i just don't want to get the buzzing that some people have heard, not to mention i live in a high elevation city. i've been telling my wife we need 40 eggs and 50 pounds of rice (yes i'm still whispering in my head) at SAMs Club just so i can check out their TVs. or i'll say i'll go and pick her up some tampons at Target then i'll stop buy BB because it's right next door. ( i don't even know why i'm whispering in my head since my wifes at work?)

If RDR is on sale I'll get that, if not I might just get a copy of LA Noire for now... OR... Uncharted 2 GOTY edition since the last times I was at GS, Walmart, Kmart and BB they only had the normal version and not the GOTY

I'm going TODAY to get a new TV with my sis. I need her truck and I'm getting a Samsung UN46D6000, 46" 1080P LED-LCD.  +G

 =D =D =D

It's on sale at BB now, under $1k, normally $1300 and Costco has their version for $100 more (could probably price match but... fuck it). I'm not sold on 3D and my understand is the 6300 only brings a shitty web browser and to be honest... I don't need no fucking shitty ass web browser on my TV. Hopefully I get a unit without the flashlighting or ghosting. Might just spend money on the 3 yr replacement plan and in 2.75 yrs later "something happened with the TV"  :bL
