So, I'm about to buy a 360. I figure I should get a HDTV to get the most out of it. Trying to figure out what's good to buy, what isn't, and what a good price is. Let me know, you geeky bastards.

We're doing a bit of TV shopping as well.. Consumer Reports ranks Samsung and Panosonic as the top brands for 47-52" plasma (what we are looking at) with prices from about $1500 on up.

I have a Samsung 50" DLP which is quite good. I would look at the DLP TVs that have LED lamps.

Reading up on the suggestions, thanks.

On a related note, is going for a 360 Elite worth it?

If you like black, yes. There is also the larger hard drive: 120gb vs 60gb.

I'm planning to get an elite when the next hardware revision comes out. The hd will be important because the next system update will let you copy games to the hd. This will alow you to bypass the dvd drive which sounds like a hair drier. Also I like black and as we all know, black computers are faster.

Plasma TVs give you a faster refresh rate than most LCD. If the room is bright from sunlight then an LCD would be better for glare, other than that I prefer plasmas.

Yes. Although it does sound like an airplane taking off when it's on.

Unfortunately all the versions have that same problem...

Picked up a regular XBox. Won't be paying for a lot of downloadable content, though the plus side is that my 5000 "points" will last a long time.

Also picked up a 24" 720p LCD. It's all very nice. Smile
