any input on this TV, good, bad or otherwise? Looking for a good solid TV, for our family room (main floor). Don't do any gaming, mostly 80% cable, 20% DVD's. Any issues on problems or reliability?

I am also looking at the KDL55EX500 as well, for the basement.

I have been looking into a new tv for the past few weeks it will take me a couple more before I make a final decision. I do lots of gaming pretty much only watch Bluray and HD sattelite and the 46" EX500 is in my top 3 as far as price to quality goes. For what it seems you are looking to do this TV would be more than sufficient. I also currently have a Sony KDL40v4100 which I purchased new a couple years ago and dont have a single complaint so as most would assume you dont need to worry about sony quality.

don't really want to spend the additional $ - looking for a good solid TV at a good price. Is there any advantage to going LED?

I went LCD. But my friend went LED because TV is lighter and uses slightly less electricity.

I talked to 2 different repair depots locally. Both say the same. LED is the most reliable. And also one guy still said stay away from plasma. Better picture quality with brights also.

57, that 5 reason why link is dead [2007]. I did try it a few times already.
Thks

I now talked to 3 repair shops of which 2 do warranty work for Panny, LG, Samsung. Led is rated over LCD with all 3, no matter the LED type. Plasma is given the ok from the 2 warranty shops. The 3rd shop that does out of warranty work said plasma is crap. So I would guess he is working on 3,4 years and older models?

The article may be dead (as indicated in post 1), but the thread itself contains all the useful info you'll need to compare plasma and LCD.
