Honestly, I don't know much about TVs, but from what I have heard, Samsung and Sony are some the best. I have had some good products from Samsung and Sony myself, but my old LG TV broke some years back.

Anyway, take my opinion whith whatever small item of your choosing.

3D TV's are awful and an absolute waste of money.

That said, if you're really strung out on getting some frilly silly 3D TV, i would suggest one of the Panasonic ST/GT30A series TV's.

Failing that, Samsung would be the second choice from me.

Ramzy's correct. There's only a few movies taking advantage of the medium and the main one, being AVATAR has Cameron adjusting colour profiles on high model Panasonic plasma sets.

I literally just got a 3DTV yesterday.

I went shopping with my dad a few different times and from what I gathered from the best buy employees, Samsung is currently on top, not Samsung. We were told that Samsung is the best for high end where as LG is a good one if you need to save a few bucks. They said Sony isn't doing very well right now and even though the TV's are still decent, they're still too expensive. Samsung is better for a cheaper price.

So I hope that answers your question. Samsung if you have some extra dough, LG if you really need to save some dollars, and don't bother with Sony.

I don't know my TV's exact model but I do know it's 55" 7000 series.

Edit: It's LED and I think i's 240Hz.

LG is pretty good, I would go for passive 3d though so you don't have to pay for glasses and don't need to recharge them. I get alot of mine from 3d movies I see at theaters and notice no difference. And people are wrong to dismiss 3D as a fad it is here to stay and is growing rapidly considering the bad economy it entered into. Also go for something over 120 hz cause that is the minimum and I read you can notice flickering even at 120.

3D isn't worth the money but that's just my two cents.

I'd just get an LED tv at 1080p that's around 46-55" or whatever size you have available.

If you are planning to use it for gaming...like a la PS3 or something I would personally recommend Sony Bravia, but as people said and from what my understanding is Samsung offers a lot of equivalent products, may be rumor but from what I've heard its a lot of the same components (same manufacturers) for them...someone correct me if I'm wrong on that, just what I heard.
