Some people have more money than time (or willingness to invest time) to figure out what to get.\nMost of us are geeks or audio obsessive such hat we enjoy figuring out what to get!\nI can relate! I enjoy evaluating speakers, but when it comes to deciding what TV or computer to buy, I will go to Rtings or Laptop Magazine to see what they say to get. Vacuum cleaner - consumer reports, etc!\nPart of that is I am very concerned about the significant differences between SQ of speakers, but pretty happy with most of the screens I see in WalMart...and I know most any 5 year old model of computer will do all I need (web-surfing, word processing, and spreadsheets). I no longer do CAD\/CAM, but there too, I think the hardware is generally as capable as the software asks it to be. That has changed dramatically over the past 25 years! I used to obsess over my computer hardware because it made a huge difference!\n\n\nSo true that 1st sentence....the people with money come into GA Home Theater normally buy B&W...the sales guy that I got to know a little bit says some customers come in wanting to buy 800 series B&W before they've even heard them.\n\nVideo...yeah side by side, I can see and appreciate the difference with OLED and LED sets, but I don't need the absolute best picture my money can buy. When I get it home it won't be next to an OLED to compare it to. That said, the refresh rates and dark room PQ varies a great deal from the entry level sets I've seen. The mid level is typically what I buy...or closeout next model up. Also the processing speed makes a difference in how quickly the TV responds to remote commands, etc.
