I'm in the market for a bigger tv (currently have a 32 inch vizio lcd)--I like my current tv, but it's only 720p--it's a good 'workhorse' everyday tv, but I'd like a bit more performance--

honestly, though, I don't know that I'd get a refurbished tv--a refurb mp3 player is something else, but not a tv.

Its a tricky business, those refurbs, but sometimes you can get a good deal.

On this one you can get the TV for $800 and a 2 year warranty from TigerDirect (after Vizio's warranty expires; if there is even a warranty from them) for an extra $179...

yeah, I know. honestly, though, after looking for a bit, it isn't that great a deal. my sis works at wal-mart, and owes me a favor. there are a few I've been looking at in the 800-1000$ range with top of the line specs, and she's gonna hook me up on the 10% off. luckily, won't have to go the refurb route--not that I'm against it...

No, don't do that. Call Vizio or go to their website. You can get a 5 year warranty for less than that 2 year one that TD offers. And yes, they will do it on a refurb. That is what I did when I bought my refurb 42" Vizio from TD a year and a half ago. I got the 5 year extended service plan directly through Vizio for $150.

BTW, for someone looking for something cheaper, here is one I got in a mailer. Tiger Direct is selling this 42" 1080p LCD HDTV for $680. Don't know anything about AOC/Envision brand. So, take it for what it's worth.

I've always heard that there hardly any difference between 720 and 1080.

Well, that depends on if you're talking 1080p or 1080i. You can't really tell much difference between 720p and 1080i. However, there is definitely a difference between 720p/1080i and 1080p. It would probably not be very noticeable on a smaller tv. But if you're getting one that is over...say....40", then you will definitely notice a difference.

Smaller tv's like 32" and below you are better off getting a 720/1080i tv but 40 and up you must get a 1080p, it's definetly a difference.
