My goal is to buy a TV which does not fall very far from the best picture quality (within reason) available. I guess I'll define within reason to be below the cost of 3000$ (unless I'm given a convincing reason to increase that number). I would like to drive cost down by not having many features I consider fluffy. Such things include netflix, smartness, unnecessary inputs or number of inputs, etc. I really only want an HDMI port or two and a USB for firmware upgrades. I don't care about viewing angle, I will always be in the sweet spot and do not want guests factored into it. I don't want 3d at all unless it more or less comes free with the TV, it annoys me and I never use it. I don't care how thin it is (my wall mount can take just about any weight, and if it cant take the weight I'll upgrade the mount. I want a "flat screen" but don't have any preference for LCD, LED, Plasma (though the concept alone wreaks of awesomeness), or anything else, I just want to put it on a wall, so no DLP. Other than that, thickness and weight are irrelevant. Size is 50 inches or more. I don't care at all about it's audio, I mute my TV's speakers. Sorry if this sounds abrupt, I'm just trying to be as specific as possible and waste as little of other people's time as I can. Any advice?
