Ok, I am in the market to buy a new tv as my old one in the living room is on the verge of going kaboom ( I am actually waiting until after the Super Bowl as I have read that is the time of the year they are the least expensive) so I started doing my homework and went and did a little pre-buying shopping yesterday. HEAVEN HELP ME!!!!! I have never been so confused in my life, so many choices, sizes, brands, types, HDTV this, LDTV that, Pixles this, and chips that, so on and so forth. Can anyone help and make this simple and give me the 1st grade version of what I need/want? I obviously want an HDTV, cannot be more than 42 inches wide and it will be hooked to cable and a stereo and dvd player. It surely cannot not be as complicated as the salespeople and displays made it. I want to spend less then $2500 and plan on doing a 12 month same as cash plan. I hate buying things on credit (except my home) but at the cost of these things and free money, I'll do it.
