    If the TV is either 120Hz or 240Hz expect some type of 'smooth motion' processing, the question is whether the TV has the option to turn it completely off (aka, Game Mode). My Samsung I keep in Game Mode, where as with the Vizio I can turn it down all the way, but it is still technically 'on'.

    Is game mode essentially the same thing as turning off smooth motion? I imagine there has to be some TV or a few that are designed with the gamer in mind able to meet our high demands of quality when it comes to on screen graphics. I will primarily be using the TV for bluray movies and gaming so those are indeed my main concerns.

    Game mode turns off ALL post processing to reduce response time (lag). It has a better effect on some tvs more than others. Also, many people won't notice the difference in speed. Unless you play fighting games, music games, or online competitive games it's okay to leave it off game mode, since theoretically, game mode reduces the image quality.

    Panasonic is definitely the brand to go with if you're going the 3D route.

    Fair enough.

    I've read those are really solid TVs. How close will you be sitting to it? 42" might be too small

    Yeah, from 3 feet, 42" is quite large. I sit about 5 ft away from my 42".

    If you're sure on that distance, Id recommend you keep looking. you can save a TON of money by getting a 32" screen. IT seems like most companies see anything greater than 40" as a living room TV and anything less as a bedroom TV so they are priced pretty differently and tend to have less features. Also, it may be more expensive, but if you're using it for a pc why not look into 30" monitors?

    Not sure how long this deal is going to last, but for $698 you can pick up a 60" Sharp LCD at Dell.com, good deal for someone on a budget!

    Not for my PC. Next to my PC. Now Im thinking of just getting a 27" monitor and get a external tv tuner.

    Well I finally was able to get a new TV! I picked up a 2013 model LG 47LN5400 that's 1080p, 120hz, and pretty great so far. I still need to tweak the settings a bit to get it perfect but for the price I couldn't be happier.

    Awesome! Spending some time tweaking the picture settings is a good time investment. You might want to consider getting a calibration disc to help you. Have you decided on your sound setup?

    I didn't know such a disc existed. Thanks for the information!

    I have tried to tweak some of the settings of which there are plenty but I seems to just jump back and forth between my personal settings and the stock "game" setting. All in all its a wonderful TV and for the price I'm very happy. I will try the calibration disc and see if I can squeak anything else out of it.

    I haven't figured out my sound setup yet either because the TV sound is already quite loud but it does lack that certain depth of environment if you will so I'm certainly still in the market for a 5.1 system.

    No problem. I'd recommend the Disney WOW Blu-ray disc. It's better for first timers.
    Having a good TV is only half of the experience. Funny thing is I'm currently helping my friend set up a 5.1 system for the ps4. Make sure you get something that can do Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA and set your blu-ray player to output LPCM if possible.There is a good deal right now on a good 5.1 receiver on amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-V373...8412716&sr=1-6

    They're having a yamaha refurbished sale. Here are some full sets to consider:

    You can also save a lot of money buying second-hand speakers, as full sets can be pricey. Check your local thrift stores.
