    What recommendations can anyone here make? I shall greatly appreciate any feedback that anyone here can offer, and I await your responses.
    No problem! Not only will I do that for you, but I will list only LED televisions while I'm at it!

    And just in case you're interested... Though it's not LED.

    I cant say enough good things about Sharp either! My 37" Aquos is now 6+ years old, and still looks as good as the day it was new! And I bought it because it was the best picture in the whole freakin' store.

    my wife and I just upgraded from a 27" CRT to a 47" LG 3D LED LCD unit. We got it from Walmart online with a sound bar and 3D glassed for $800. We ditched the sound bar as we've already got a home theater setup but the LED and 3D is awesome

    LED is awesome! I've got a 40" Sammy TV, the extremely lucky $600 price tag 3 years ago.

    I just recently got a 21.5" Acer LED. Thing barely gets warm to the touch.
    Two years. They were great. Let's make the next ones even better!

    Ultimately, my brother and I purchased this television set, here, and we are immensely satisfied with it, as are our parents. It is a noticeable improvement over our previous television in term of power consumption and image quality, and it is definitely future-proof, as it has HDMI ports for when we eventually upgrade our regular DVD player to a blu-ray disc player, although we may not do that for some time yet. Our parents are pleased with it, and, by extension, so are my brother and I.

    Congrats! You'll love the upgrade to blu-ray when you make it. The difference is like going from black and white to color or from mono to stereo sound. It's huge.

    I am certain that upgrading from standard DVD to blu-ray disc shall be a significant upgrade, but I doubt that it shall be as major an upgrade as you proclaim it to be, if you do not mind me saying so, because while blu-ray discs are certainly more advanced than standard DVD's, they are simply the same optical discs with higher storage capacities. That is merely an improvement of an existing format, and not a fundamental change of format itself, as are upgrading from VHS to DVD, from audio cassettes to audio CD's, from floppy disks to flash drives, from a CRT television or computer monitor to an LCD unit, from dial-up internet to Ethernet, or from a mechanical hard drive to a solid-state drive. Again, I hope to not sound rude, and I am certain that blu-ray shall be an improvement over DVD, I doubt that it shall be a ground-breaking a change as was DVD over VHS.

    I haven't made the jump to Blu-Ray yet either. My upconverting 1080p DVD player works extremely well, and makes all my existing plastic discs look pretty decent. It also upconverts all the stuff I have for my son to watch on a 1TB portable USB drive. I will eventually make the move as the price of the players is heading into much more reasonable territory, and the price of Blu-Ray discs appears to be heading into similar range as DVD. $15 for a movie on Blu-Ray is reasonable to me. $30+ for one, out of my budget.
