Thanks for your input
I took a look at theVT50 at BB yesterday. Although I really liked the picture, the reflections of the ceiling lights and the other TV on the wall next to it really bothered me.
I know that people were happy with last year's LGs and was disappointed to see that this year's lineup is glossy. I will try to find 2011 models to check out.
Originally I was going to wait for the full array Sharp 9 series, but now I hear it's not coming. I am leaning towards the Sharp 60 847 even though the PQ is not the same and some of the sets seem to have clouding issues. I guess they all have problems and it's what you can live with.
