Samsung FULL HD LCD TV 6 Series LA40B650.

    Good price and would definitely agree that the Samsung panels are good. I actually understand that they have a technology deal in place with Sony so if you look closely, there is a lot of similarity between the Samsung & Sony LCD panels - and general opinion is the Sony screens are the best LCDs out there.

    If you look around I would note that you can find something like the Panasonic (and general opinion is that, since Pioneer left the market, they make the best plasmas out there) TH-P42S10A plasma for under $1k - so a little bigger screen for a little less money. And the money you save can go towards a blu-ray player, or wdtvlive, or wall mount....

    If you don't care about "full" HD (if you're just watching free to air on a 50 inch screen or smaller, then full HD is generally wasted) and you have the space, then you can get a 50inch job for under $1k (eg TH-P50X14A). Actually, I would always suggest people checking out both plasmas and LCD panels and making sure that the image is what they want. Some people prefer one over the other (I'm more a plasma fanboy myself) - but that preference can depend highly on how you use the tv - where it is, what sort of content (movies, sport, games...) you view, etc.....

    The ethernet and USB connections are interesting. Means you can plug your media player in. The USB is a little less useful but in theory if you want to display your images you can drop them on a drive and run through them on the tellie (though not sure why you would)

    Good price from Dse. Not sure who else stocks it but you could use the lowest price guarantee out of one of the competitors to get it cheaper. Bing Lee doesnt look to be stocking it.

    I actually thought I'd never, ever, use the SD memory card slot in the front of my panasonic but in fact it's actually been a nice feature. Last christmas I put a stack of old christmas photos on a card and had them playing during the family get together. I'd also used it as an easy way to show off photos - people can slot the card straight out of their camera....

    It would be nice if the TV supported video playback (eg xvid/divx/mp4) through that usb port, rather than just music/photos. Even so, a nice feature - in particular if you don't have something like a wdtvlive or (say) you hang the tv on a wall and don't want cables draping down to something on a table below. Just plug the thumb drive in or connect via wifi and you're good to go....
