2 of the best TV's I have are the following:
Back in 2005 I bought still working till today no issues = PIONEER PLASMA ELITE PRO 1120 50" (main living room) Still looks better than any other recent models. Check this out, price back then on website $12,000 I did not pay that much of course...
2012= Samsung UN46D8000 (bedroom) along with soundbar D551, best combo. Stunning image, sound and looks.
