Honestly, the specs look all the same to me. I would probably go with the 789 as it has more bells and whistles.

Bump.

We have a Toshiba HD-A3 DVD player. With no remote. I can't configure the stupid fucking cable box universal remote to it, because every single code I tried doesn't work. The DVD player is clearly reading some sort of signal from the remote, because the display changes to read "HD DVD" rather than whatever it said previously when a button is pressed. I almost want her to just let me put my HD flatscreen and PS3 in the living room, but that's a big step and I don't know if our relationship is at that level yet.

For serious, though, anyone know any affordable (less than $50) universal remotes that might work on this piece of shit? Google = not helping. We're fine with having 2 separate remotes, for the record.

Okay now it's my turn. My 42" plasma is dead now. R.I.P. You made me happy.

But now I am looking for something:
42" and above
LCD or LED
120hz or 240hz
no higher than $900.00

Currently this is what I am looking at.

I'm very happy with my LG 42" 120Hz 1080p. It should be around that price.

Pretty sure my dad has that. MEH. Check to see if the sub is separately powered or not. His isn't.

So we are probably going to buy a TV sometime this week. Right now these are the two I am looking at:

This Samsung model from Costco is going for $1600 right now.
http://www.samsung.com/us/video/tvs/UN65ES6550FXZA

And this LG from Best Buy is going for $1700.
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/LG+-+60%26%2334%3B+Class+-+LED+-+1080p+-+240Hz+-+Smart+-+3D+-+HDTV/6734339.pT?id=1218786218461&skuId=6734339

I am leaning towards the LG due to the higher refresh rate & better contrast ratio, but Costco offers a much cheaper 5 year warranty than Best Buy.

Any suggestions?
