    Neither.
    I'd get an LED over any TV on the market.

    This, especially if it's for your computer.

    This Bravia LED is not that much more expensive than the LCD you posted.

    I promise it will be worth the extra cash.

    ok im going with that Sony Bravia LED LCD tv now. Thanks for the help, I'm gonna end up buying a set of surround sound speakers to hook to it and my new 360 slim when I get it, since the new 360 has optical audio out.

    Will I be able to run both my TV and my 360 into one receiver? This way I can use it for both my television and my 360 without having to unplug anything? Also can a PC hook up to a surround sound receiver? I'm wanting to think it can if you have a decent sound card, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Never mind on THAT Sony LED TV, read some bad reviews on it.


    Anyone else have any more suggestions? I'm trying to keep it at $700 to $750 MAXIMUM.

    Requirements:

    LED LCD
    1080P
    Energy Star Efficient
    120Hz
    Low Response Time (i.e. 2-3ms)
    32"
    Internet Capable (doesn't need to be built in wifi)
    3 or more HDMI inputs
    USB ports are a plus
    Good contrast ratio is a must.


    Good reviews are required for me to make a solid decision.

    I'm actually thinking of ditching the whole internet ready TV thing and getting a monitor that's close to this one spec wise, has better reviews game-wise and is only $534.28.


    Nevermind found a promo code to get an additional $210.00 off the internet ready one.

    Goddammit, it seems every time I find a nice TV I read where someone says "it lags on video games" yet there are others who state gaming looks awesome with it. WTF!?

    Our 55" Samsung LED has a computer input and lot's of other USB and video inputs. I suggest finding something like that.
    With the computer input, we plug in our small Acer computer that we use for RC flight simulators and the quality is amazing.
    I'm not sure what you mean by lags on video games. The TV itself doesn't' play games, it's whatever you have connected to it.
    We don't use the TV's built in net option. We use the plugged-in computer for that.
    As far as some say it's great and others don't, well everybody has their own opinion. Keep researching, save more. You'll find what you want eventually.

    They are also very expensive. Want one that's 32" at least, 1080P and 120hz, all I can find Samsung in my price range are 60hz models.

    I went with the LG 5400 32" LED TV with 1080P, 120Hz and built in internet. Should arrive Wednesday, will still need to pick up an HDMI cable though. Probably gonna order one of those MS HDMI/AV cables so I can use HDMI and keep my Logitech X 530 surround sound speakers hooked up. That will last me until tax time when I get myself a new home theater system and a 360 slim.

    TV arrived Wednesday and Friday night I sold my 360 Arcade to a coworker for $100 with its refurbished 20GB HDD and no controller, put that $100 with my own cash and got a 250GB 360 S. So now I have a 32" LED HDTV to play on, a new 360 with plenty of HDD space and a second controller. I'm gonna check and see if I can pick up a a decent home theater/blu-ray player combo on black friday or at least a PS3 at the same time i do my xmas shopping.
