I could if there was one to recommend. When the Pan and LG 42" plasma's are $650, and they are exceptionally good for their price...and all the "good" lcd's are closer to $750 (for a still basic model)....kinda hard to recommend anything.

I got my sister a sharp 42 inch at wal mart in november for 499. It was some kind of special sale they had (not Black Friday, more like Nov. 5). It is a great TV for that price and she is very happy with it. I would think you could find a similar deal in an actual store (last years model, closeouts, etc.). I shop at a store called Electronic Express in Tennessee. They have some crazy good deals in-store, particularly on holidays, so check at the local brick and mortar store.

LG offers the best "bang for the buck" feature,price,quality wisw when it comes to LCD tv's 40' and up.Sammy's are nice, but still a little overpriced.Sony's new lineup of 2010-11 LCD-LED's are rather attractively priced for a change(they were VERY much overpriced until recently) and offer very similar quality to the Samsung models.If price IS a large concern, LG may be the best overall choice however.

if "cost and quality" are the two biggest concerns...Mitsubishi LCD. There is a reason they cost what they do. Also, if people would spend 2 seconds with their purchase decision and realize that they "might" purchase a soundbar, add the soundbar to the price of what they are looking at...and the Mits LCD makes even more sense.

If you want good sound, from the TV itself, Mitsubishi is the ONLY choice there is. Take the LT 40153 (availiable at ONECALL for $1350). Take out say $300 for the soundbar. That puts the TV at just over $1000. There IS NO comparison to any other LCD on the market cause Mits added the sound bar already. When you hear these, they keep up with the Similar size Yamaha YSP's. (The 249 series is incredible, but only avail 46 and 52). Mits 153/151 series LCD's have no comparison.

You won't currently get a good 40 incher at that price, but a lot of 32 inchers, and a few 37's, can be had. Amazon and Walmart are the best prices I've seen anywhere. You will pay more for a 1080p than a 720p, even though the difference in picture quality, at those sizes, is really negligible. Personally, I like Sony, but they're almost always the most expensive. You really can't go wrong with most brand name sets. Samsung, Panasonic, Sharp, Toshiba, LG, etc. are all great tv's.. Vizio makes a decent tv also, as does JVC. Magnavox and Phillips are mediocre. Mainly, I would just stay away from Sanyo, RCA, Memorex, any off brand, and probably the most horrendous of the bunch... Polaroid. That one is so bad it should be quarantined.

I just bought a best buy brand tv called dynex. its 40" LCD 1080p 60 hz refresh. it looks amazing and you wont find a better priced tv anywhere else.

Dynex might be a great tv. It's just that with the brand names, you generally have a more extensive record of their reliability through reviews of their products and models. Any HD television should have an amazing picture. The real test is whether it's still working great 3-5 years after purchase. Reviews of RCA's, Funai, Memorex, Sanyo, and particularly Polaroid, have shown very high failure rate in the first year. That's no deal at any price.

I purchased a 40" Westinghouse VR-4090 tv with 1080p@60Hz resolution for $299 about a month ago online. It's usually in the $300-$325 price range, which still isn't a bad price for a tv of that size and specs.

Why is it so difficult to find a tv larger than 32 inches with a built in DVD player?

I absolutely agree "Samsung is never the best there is".

I had SUCH trouble with a Samsung (reg/green faces and greys squashed to black) that absolutely NO one could fix. No set of professional settings. Further, their panel lottery is among the worst. If you see someone raving about the Samsung, chances are they got a Samsung manufactured panel and not some no-name china brand. Makes an enormous difference, and I absolutely will not risk Samsungs again. If you don't believe me, google "Samsung red face" or "Samsung too dark". And no, this doesn't happen to all uncalibrated displays.

Further, if you ever do want to spend more money, they're using Active 3D which is a now quickly losing favor to Passive. Passive, in particular LG's variant, has come a *very* long way, and manages to maintain frames per second, which is critically important.
