Not for me. I've been tasked with replacing my grandparents unit as their current one is making loud clacking sounds. They have a very early 32 inch Panasonic LCD probably about a decade old. The place they have their tv located can't accept any larger than 32 inches unfortunately (a 37 may fit, but they don't seem to make 37 inch sets anymore). Things I'm looking for - Fast, easy to use menus. I know a lot of modern smart tvs are laggy, they won't use any of the smart tv functionality, but the EPG and menus need to be good. - Best picture quality possible. So a 1080P set. - Loud clear speakers. - PVR system built in. Realistically a hundred or two isn't the end of the world, the tv just has to function well and have good 'core' features. It seems LG and Samsung make nice high end sets with the best image quality, but both of them seem to have fairly poor ratings? Also does anyone have any experience with just plugging in a thumb drive or an external drive to give it PVR functionality? I know they don't have duel tuners (so you can watch and record different channels) but thats something. I've often wondered if the drives get too hot and damaged with constant read/writes. Any input would be appreciated, I have little clue about televisions.
