1600 with 2 sets of 3d glasses. Not really worried about 3d but I like the reviews, and it's close enough to being a 60. Little over 1500 that I had originally planned, but I have gift cards to offset the difference.
You will be happy with that set.

OR I can upgrade the Panasonic I have in the family room which has PS3 and the HD box hooked in. I'm leaning that way since my Panasonic was a TV I won at work. It's a Panasonic Viera tc-p42c2. Only 720p, so maybe I get a nice 1080 for the HD stuff. Not willing to go too expensive since I'm not terribly picky. I just want the movies/sports/ps3 to look good.
Is there a noticeable difference for the average person between 60 and 120 Hz?
Are Vizios solid? A guy at work who is a big home theater guy said they are a good TV. Obviously not your superstar, but it looks good and built well. Thoughts?
I think there is a larger difference between 60hz and 120hz than there is between 720 and 1080. Especially for bluray movies.
Vizios are nice looking tvs, but they do not carry an inventory of parts for them at all. They are not a manufacturer and have said before that they consider their tv's to be disposable. I'm not suggesting that they are time bombs. They were the first to offer their smart tv features at a really affordable price. Their XVT series is their top, the M series are the middle market ones. If youre interested in 3D them and LG use cheap passive glasses, and I really think thats a more consumer friendly way of doing it.
Hard to recommend something without knowing a size or price range. The Samsung D6000 series LED were huge sellers this year. The 46" was just $899 this past week.
That is one of the three best reviewed tv's this year, along with the Panasonic VT30 and Sharp Elite LED.
