Hello,
thought I'd dip my toe into the vast ocean of knowledge about things technical here abouts.
We are shopping for a HDTV, don't know much about them.
Here is what my own bobbing about in that ocean has learned.
We want a about a 60" screen, 120hz, 1080, non-3d.
I have narrowed it to either LG or Samsung.
hh gregg looks like the the best deal right now to buy from.
(We watch a lot of sports and movies, no gaming.)

Any thoughts or suggestions out there?

and what the heck is a "smart tv"

thanks,
Bruce and Lisa

Samsungs are great but Lg is now one of the top dogs. Led is the BEST picture, some of the better tvs are 3D capable and Smart, but you do not have to use it.  Be aware of model numbers and the difference between them, 
example -$450. tv  compared to $550. tv, similar numbers and letters, but big difference in picture and sound quality.

When you purchase your tv and take it home, hook it up, turn it on.........looked better in the store....Factory settings.
All new tvs are in factory default settings, soooo.... poor picture and sound. The tv has to be adjusted for best picture and sound, no matter the cost or manufacturer.

We have both LG and Samsung LED TVs and love both.  The LG is 3D and internet  the Samsung is not but has a Samsung Blue Ray w/ internet.  3D was a waste of money.  If I had to do it over I would get a basic LG LED TV and then add the Blue ray w/ internet/smart capability.  I love that the Samsung is preloaded w/ Pandora on the remote.  My LG was not preloaded w/ Pandora.  As I write this, I think the Samsung has been easier to use.  Both look great.

We got a 60" Plamsa LG from Sam's Club for around $900 (I think).  Seemed like a very hard to beat price (LED or LCDs are at least 1300 or the same size).  It doesn't have internet or any crazy frills...but it's an awesome picture.  We're very happy with it.  It has lot of input options too...HDMI, RCA, Component, USB, etc.  Hope that helps...good luck!

Hi Bear,

I sent a reply back to the Chatlist today.

A smart TV gets internet from your wifi or cable and you can download Netflix movies or watch games when they are on ESPN3 which is the computer channel. It acts like a huge monitor.

We have a LG LED/LCD/Plasma combo smart tv we ordered from QVC. They delivered it fast through Fed Ex and have split payment plans with a credit card use. The LG (52") was 800.00. It was a great deal because it adjusts pixilization (LED/LEC etc) by what light the room has. The sound is also great.

Good luck!!!!
