Question about Sony QUALIA 005 46 in. LCD Television
Some top brands in no particular order are, Panasonic, LG, Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Toshiba. Bear in mind that within any brand, there are budget models, mid-range and top range models. The LCD panels will range in quality based on their price range. Features will improve with price as well. One top feature is 120 hertz refresh rate leading to very smooth motion. You may not require such smoothness. Size is probably the most overlooked consideration. Take the screen diagonal measure and double it for the closest distance the screen should be from your viewing location. Three times the screen should be the maximum. For a 42" screen it might be 42" x 2 = 84" or 7' minimum and 42" x 3" = 126" or about 10' maximum. Measure your existing viewing distance, go to a Best Buy and stand at that distance to see how it might look in your home. Don't get hung up on precision if you are a few inches outside of these guidelines.
If your viewing area is brightly lit from outside light, favor LCD. If you will be in a dark room, plasma TV's are an option, but they will run hotter, draw more power and will be heavier requiring a substantial mount to wall mount them, not a one man job.
