Yeah I agree with "HowEver". Do as much research on your own before going in. Know what makes a good HDTV good and decide what your needs are. Maybe something midrange at a good price is more than acceptable for you at this point. Ask yourself questions like do you need a built in Tuner, How many HDMI connections will you need as well as other types of connections. Look at Contrast ratio and all those other tech details. Also it doesn't hurt to stop off at a Best Buy or another electronics place just to browse. One trick I like to use is just hang around the area where they sell the TV's and listen to what other people are asking and the sales persons response. And of course when you start narrowing down your selection look for online consumer reports, find a few sites so you get a range of viewpoints.
