Omar: It's actually a pretty simple decision actually. The big thing with the 2011 models is the wider availability and affordableness of 3D. So if you're really set on not going 3D then getting a 2010 model in the 55+ or even 60+ range can be an amazing proposition from a value perspective.As for LCD or Plasma, if you're not sure then go with LCD. Plasma can achieve better picture quality but requires more care and maintenance to achieve. So if you want the absolute best picture quality, and especially if you play a lot of video games, then Plasma is the way to go. However you have to "break in" plasmas, worry about power consumption, worry about burn in and image retention, and control the amount of light in the room.Now the real question you need to ask yourself is: is 3D REALLY not important to you?Because if you buy a tv now, you're not going to want to buy one for another 3-5 years. And if you change your mind in that timespan to want 3D you're put in an annoying position.Now, I'm going to throw you a bit of a curve ball. The #mitsubishi_wd_73738It's 73" which is huge and awesome and will impress the hell out of everyone. It's extremely well priced at under $2000. AND it's 3D ready, so when you ultimately decide to use 3D it's just a couple hundred dollar upgrade and you're good to go.If I were to buy a TV now, I'd probably go with this one, or maybe a passive 3D display because 3D is quite important to me.

Omar: I would definitely go out and find a local store that you can see the TV in action. I personally haven't seen it, but online reviews are extremely favorable. From a value perspective it's by far the best bang for the buck. And if you want to really go all out you can pick up the monstrous 83" ;) Apr 20, 11
