I know it's been discussed over and over but one thread was 3 years old so i thought i'd ask new

basically my Sony tubed hdtv is dying or needs work but 200 lbs and the repair won't be easy or cheap so i figured maybe time to go thin and new tech vs a tube.

I will want it to look great and play great for the xbox on 1080p as the old tube worked great for gaming. no lag at all.

So LED, plasma what's the general consensus these days and what brand. I've been a sony TV guy for 20 years but they can be a pain too.

I spent 2 grand on this one but that was so long ago.

I'd love to be at 500 but i will pay more if its worth it.

Suggestions please and tyia

I just looked at this one and it seems about what i need since i'm used to a 34 inch and gaming is said to be good on it.

I think the most important thing is that you go with an LED not a plasma. When you're gaming you have the radar and the ammo count in the corners of your screen. On a plasma this will definitely cause a burn-in image and not go away. When it comes to gaming LED is a must. Although I am a Samsung guy the TV you chose in the link seems like a good buy. Here is another recommendation that you could consider:

I also recommend reading the reviews at the bottom of the page for each of these tv's or any other tv that you look at. You could alos go to, go to reviews and type in the model number of a tv that you are looking at.

Just remember, if you buy from amazon or best buy you usually can return the tv for a full refund if your not happy with it. I would double check to make sure.
