: Which one? 42LG50 / LN40A530 / 42RV530U

I have narrowed my search for a panel tv to 3 choices. They are all 1080P LCD units 40-42". I have a nice opening for it over my gas fireplace (yes I know I heard it all.. fireplace neck, possible contaminants et all).

The tv set will primarily be used with a BEV HD pvr, a 480P dvd player. It is our second set and I know I could have saved some and went to a 720P panel, but I didnt want to purchase a set that was "obsolete out of the box".

Price is not an issue in this decision as the street prices are all within 110.00 of one another. What motivates me is picture quality and clarity (both HD and SD), warranty, reliability. If there are "known issues" on these particular sets, please share.

Thanks as always!

I bought the Samsung a few weeks back and loving it! I haven't put it through all possible tests but it looks great for PS3 bluray, Xbox360 Gaming and even very good with a standard BEV receiver.

Samsung, stay away for LG no matter what.
