It depends on your needs really. I enjoy the sharpest piture. So I choose DLP tlevisions. They have a downside. They are about 13' thick. But the resolutuion is almost twice as good as an LCD. A LCD gives you excellent picture quality, and is very thin. Averages about 4". You want a television that has a refresh rate of 120hz or higher. Sony just introduced a model that has a 240hz refresh rate. This is advantagous for sports fans becuse the refresh rate is critical. If it has less than 120 hz then the faster the oblect moves on the screen, there will be a little blur. Any 1080p HD television is going to give you a superb picture. The brand is purely a loyalty issue. Sony Bravia LCD's seem to have a very low rate of problems. And they are very affordable. I enjoy DLP better because I am more into watching movies, and they have the purest colr/picture with no possability of "burn in" Plasma is the WORST choice. They are prctically unserviceable. Or, they cost too much to service. Sometimes itis cheaper to buy a new plasma than to have one repaired. The only draw back on my DLP is that I have to replace the bulb at about 100.00 every 4,000 hours of viewing. Dlp's are also famous for having color wheel issues. After a copule of years they will start to make a metallic screech, or hum. But If you purchase a 5 year warranty they get replaced for free. As long as you buy a 1080p TV with a 120hz refresh rate or higher, you will be VERY satisfied. And you will have the latest in technology.

I have a Roku 2, live in the country and am trying to play a movie. It keeps stopping a reloading. what is wrong or what can I do?


Roku is an excellent streaming media player, but is ultimately limited by the delivery rate of your ISP's (Internet Service Provider's) continuous download speeds, used for streaming over the internet. ( Check what kind of speeds you're getting...) Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on "Begin Test" There are a number of websites you can use to check your connection speed to see if this is the source of the issue.
Most often, a slow connection, (under 300kbps) will cause the issues you've described. The slower the connection, the bigger the problem. This is most observable on Roku channels that don't detect, or compensate for slower connections, especially at high definition streaming rates.
( 720 High-Def streams work well above 1.5Mbps download rates, and 5Mbps is recommended as good rate for 1080 viewing)
At just under 3Mbps over DSL, we're able to watch two movies at the same time, in different rooms, on Netfix, at 720. I've heard that some people are experiencing issues watching just one movie delivered with a cable modem... Not sure what's going on there?
Some Roku Channels are better than others at delivering the best possible viewing experience. Some use poor compression technologies, or only deliver a 1080 Definition image. Using the best compression technology, detecting best streaming rate, etc... are where the most successful Roku channels come in.
Netflix for instance attempts to detect the optimum streaming rates for slower speed connections, and automatically compensates by reducing image definition when needed.
You might try selecting a lower definition for your display from the settings menu on your Roku device... I've seen some improvement with loading issues, by choosing a lower definition display for your television, even though you might be using a high-def television.

Tv picture looks grainy like it was shot on video


well most lcd and plasma tv's above 36" will look grainy on standard definition because they are made for high definition so if you do not receive a high definition signal to your tv then that would most likely be the problem

How to get a high definition Picture??


Okay - it is a high def 720p but you have to use the HDMI inputs for High Definition... also, using the LCD as a computer monitor the best setting is 1280 x 768 - standard p&p monitor driver for Win XP or Vista (or Win 7 Beta). The HDMI slots are on the left side and are small rectangular slots about 1" long.

    Changing Screen Size on Samsung HP-R4272


    you must not have the correct picture settings in the cable box, as although they are not HD they will still be widescreen, so check both tv and box for picture settings.
