Samsung HPS5073 vs. Toshiba 47HL167
OK, here's the deal...
I have been sifting through the the billions of reviews online and looking in my local electronic stores searching for an new HDTV. Our house was struck by lightning and the insurance company is actually going to PAY for new stuff instead of fighting us for it!! (so far!) =)
We just had an old school projection HD unit so this will be quite an upgrade. In my searching, the two models I have decided on are the Samsung HPS5073 and the Toshiba 47HL167. Plasma or LCD doesn't bother me... both are good technologies. Each unit has the features and connections that I want. My basic struggle, I think, is I like the 50" size of the Samsung, but I like the 1080p capability of the Toshiba. I think I am leaning towards the Toshiba because the size difference is only 3" diagonally, which really isn't much.
Both units can be had for about $1900.00 from reputable online stores (Tiger Direct and Amazon). The Samsung is refurbished but comes with a 1yr extended warranty, so being a refurb doesn't bother me.
So, what do you guy's think?? Weigh in on the unit you like best and why... and if you have a suggestion about another unit I haven't mentioned feel free to add to my confusion!! =)
Thanks for your time and help!!
