    Unless it's used, a good 55 inch LED for under 1K is gonna be a feat. As for being a smart TV, just pick up chromecast.

    I just bought an awesome 1080p HD 3D projector for 1350, plus the screen for 120ish. $1500 total for a 110" screen thats crystal clear. 3D is the tits.

    And my friggin dogs cant knock it over. The room also has way more space. I ran the cables for the surround sound and HDMI into a PS3 over in the next room for heat purposes.

    I got a "shit brand" 55" LED from walmart for 500 bucks. The picture quality is pretty nice but the shittiest part was the sound was absolutely terrible. Got a cheap sound bar to fix that and its awesome!

    consider a plasma? i have a LG 55" plasma and its awsome and i paid $600 on sale $800 w/4 yr warranty. picture for movies and games 100000% better on a plasma than an LED. processor in a plasma is 100x's or so faster than led/lcd

    ok any specific reasons? horrible customer service, cheap parts, trends in malfunctions? also im not opposed to plasma, I guess I have to see soeme video of both to compare. led just looks brighter and colors seem to pop. I know the video feeds in walmart/bestbuy suck

    The heat was the reason I moved the PS3 and stereo into the main area out of my theatre room.

    I decided to do that before it even arrived.

    But it really does nothing to heat up the room surprisingly...

    I'm leaning toward the lg plasma from dell. I'm going to use the gift card to buy a surround sound or sell and get the chromecast down the line

    Its ordered. I harassed the Indian lady at dell, by calling I got free 2 day shipping and another 5% rebate on top of $200 dell gift card. I will probably try to sell gc's on Craigslist to offset cost of tv because dell prices on surround sound is horrible. Thanks for the info white guy, this black guy appreciates the insight. Now let's hope this thing lasts for years
