    Hello. I'm looking to buy an 46/47 inch LCD TV. I'm trying to decide between these two:

    LG 47" 1080p + 120Hz (47LG70) - $1599CAD
    http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...4984&catid=

    Samsung 46" 1080p (LN46A550) - $1499CAD
    http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...9947&catid=

    I wouldn't even be considering the LG but it is on sale and seems to be better in every way than the Samsung, specs-wise. However, I don't know a lot about LG, or how reliable their products are, while I know Samsung is a top-notch company and that I wouldn't be disappointed with their televisions.

    Are either of these good choices? If anyone has any suggestions for a TV with similar specs/size/price that may be better than these, please suggest! Thanks in advanced!

    :coold: Thanks for the suggestions guys, guess I'll go with the Samsung... I've heard the same about LG's being crappy but I just wanted a second opinion!

    I have a 37" LG LCD and am happy with it. Its been great for PS3 and movies. I don't have HDTV, so I can't say anything about that.
