Samsung and Sony are both good, just make sure you get that 240 HZ. If you do get SONY, get the Bravia. Dudes at work say " I copped that 55" TV for $900.." I just shake my head, because it's either plasma or 120 HZ maybe 60 HZ. I say you, a decent 55" going to run from $1800-$2500. They just happy to have a big TV until they come over and see my 50" putting their sh*t to shame. Quality over size
I say the SAME exact sh*t to people around the holidays and black Friday. I tell people not to go nuts over cheap a.ss deals for big TV's. They get all excited to see a 55" TV for $500. They ignore the quality and just love the price tag. There are plenty of good deals out there if you look, but those ain't the type of deals you want. Look at the deal I got. I was amazed.
And 120hz is fine. I did my research before I bought my TV and read numerous times that you can't visibly see the difference between 120hz and 240hz. But definitely don't get the 60hz. THAT is noticeable. The 120hz Sony Bravia I got has a REAL nice picture.
