Please rank these LED TVs (1080p, at least 120 Hz, internet compatible): Sony, LG, Samsung, Toshiba? Any clearly superior or inferior? Price range ~$1100. Thanks in advance.

Why internet capable? If you want something specific online, try a PC, if you want something specific from your TV, then be specific. TVs are cruddy web products, except perhaps the new Sony Google TVs which may have some bugs.

Buy a TV for the quality of the TV, not for the glitter. You can ALWAYS add web appliances later if you want.

I would get a Samsung LED flat panel (8000 series) above all others.

Sony next. They have good build quality and a solid image.

VIZIO is probably my brand after that. They offer a lot of bang for the buck and an image which is solid.

LG, Toshiba, Sharp, and a long list of others follow those. I would not buy others though, I would stick with one of those three. On a budget, I would get Vizio. With money, I would get Samsung... So, I pretty much would just stick with those two.

Of course, more likely I would get the best display on the market which is actually available, and that would be a Panasonic VT25 series plasma.

Thanks. I'm thinking this now:

TC-46PGT24

Here seems a good 46in Panny Plasma 3D at a good value with intenet, 1080p, 600Hz: TC-46PGT24. Thoughts?

I'm not in depth will all of the Panny plasmas, but in my experience they are just a top shelf product for the money.

Look for reviews via Google.

Based on personal experience I would grade them as follows.

1. LG
2. Samsung
3. Sony
4. Toshiba

Plus if you want more info you may go to users reviews for specific items on Testfreaks.

Hope this helps. Regards.
