I am trying to finally decide on a TV to replace a 36" CRT.
The room is reasonably large (18x20x19) - very open with lots and lots of windows (with a really great view - so I'm not putting up shades!).
I watch lots of SyFy; BBC America; Dark shows - Fringe, Bones, etc; old movies; SciFi movies: Babylon 5, Farscape; Sports - football, baseball; Racing - F1 and Nascar. Some daytime as well as night.
We sit about 12'-13' away.
I am a teacher in a small rural county in Virginia and don't want to spend a fortune - probably top out around $2500 for the set - as I need to buy a new receiver as well as a BD player. I've got really great sound and want to finally move up to a "real" TV.
I've read stuff for years now and have no idea what to buy - I've looked at loads of sets, but they all seem to have their faults - so here I sit - suffering from "paralysis through analysis"!
So...... what can you suggest?
Help a guy out - please!
