I'm looking to get a new wall-mountable flat screen TV within the next month. I have a regular DVD player but no cable TV, so for the moment I'm not incredibly concerned with the highest resolution possible. What I was is a TV that's around 40" (give or take) that has a nice picture and is reliable. My price range (don't laugh now...) is $600-$800, though I can stretch it slightly if there's something much better for a little more.
I clearly notice the difference between lesser TN panels and my beautiful Dell 2407-HC, so whatever the equivalent in the flat screen TV arena is, I'd want the better option, if it isn't too expensive. Reliability is important, too. I've had my current 19" Sony Trinitron TV for about 20 years now, and it's still operating perfectly (it survived one major repair about 15 years ago). I'd like to make a similar investment, if that's possible in this price range.
I know a lot of people around here like Westinghouse, but I'm also wow'ed by Toshiba and Samsung when I see them in stores. Any advice on which TV to get, as well as the best place to get it, is greatly appreciated.
