HDTV assistance please

My dad has decided to make the jump to HD and is going big.

I would love some help finding him a few choices of 60" HDTVs around the $2000 and under range.

Found a Sony Bravia at Sears for $1699
http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...000P?adCell=W3

the same TV at Newegg is $1999.

Any opinions or other options you may know about would be appreciated. Also, is the one at sears a good option or should I have him wait until next week for the superbowl sales?

I have a Panasonic Viera 50" plasma and a 42" Samsung LCD. I like them both very much. Sony makes good stuff, can't go wrong with any of these brands, really.

Right now we are only looking at 60" TVs so those are the deals I looking for right now.

I am really curious about superbowl week though. Do they have big sales that week or only average.

It reviews out well, as best I can tell.

On a more personal note, a 60" is 43% larger than my measly 50".

Just to throw another option in there, here's a 73in Mitsubishi DLP for $1300.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...?EdpNo=6277547

As for Sony, they are supposed to make quality products. But I just wonder if they're really that much better. When I first looked at HDTVs 3.5 years ago, I remember seeing the Bravias in the stores and wondering why they were usually 1.5 to 2 times the price of some lower priced brands like Vizio. They didn't look any better to me.

Amazon marketplace seller has that Sony for $1306.

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-BRAVIA-KD...7&sr=8-2-fkmr0

The seller, 6th Ave Electronics is one I used when I bought my surround sound. Got a great price. So, if you're worried that its not directly from Amazon don't sweat it.

Yeah, I have been seeing some dirt cheap DLPs but with it being kind of a dying technology I wonder if they are worth the investment. Also, you still have to replace the $200-300 bulbs every few years

I'd avoid a DLP, especially since plasma and LCD prices have come down dramatically.

LCD or Plasma? Either one better than the other? Does it matter?

Unless it's a 73" beast that is.

Same here. My parents have a 47" Bravia and I like the picture on my 50" Samsung plasma better. I also have a 42" Panasonic plasma that I really like.
