    I have never been a big tv buff. I don't watch much TV either but I am a major movie buff I love movies and I will love my iPad 2 and streaming with air play.

    I am set on a 42 inch VIZIO

    But I don't know I I need

    LED
    LCD
    OR VIA

    I font know the difference between LCD and led but they sound complex.

    If I'm not watching does 720 and 1080 matter. What about MHz?

    Also I wouldn't need the via if I decide to buy apple tv. Perks of it as well?

    Any suggestions would be helpful. My max price range is $750

    Help!!!

    If I catch a sale that may be a good idea. I have been looking on walmart. I don't mind refurb so any links would be helpful.

    I bought a 42 inch LCD panasonic off amazon for 499 shipped. Amazon also has a good return policy so if you got a bad tv then it's easy to exchange.

    Make sure to get one that is at least 120 MHz. I believe the higher speed will give you better quality on fast moving scenes.

    For real tv buffs, check out the avforum forum.

    How is the panasonic? I'm pretty set on VIZIO. I have struggles with disappointment so if I didn't get what I wanted, I wouldn't use it or send it back.
