Who Makes the Best New TV is a tough question. From our stand point, we find it difficult to recommend any specific manufacturer. The industry and the technology is constantly going through changes. We are at a place whereby the manufacturing process of the new generation of televisions (the last three years or so) has drastically changed. New TV's are more compact, internal components that used to be separately accessible are now combined on internal boards. New TV's are much lighter. Generally, we have found that the heavier a TV is, the better it is built. This of course can be said about a lot of things.
If your TV is a Projection/Rear Projection or a DLP TV, you know what were talking about when we refer to the "heavier" televisions. As previously mentioned, the process to which newer TV's are currently being manufactured has changed. From a TV repair standpoint, we don't necessarily feel it's been for the better. So if the question about "Who Makes The Best TV" entails "How easily and cost effectively it can be repaired" (they do break); Then we believe they are all about the same. Nobody wins. We also feel that the previous generation of televisions (from a repair standpoint) are better TV's.
Since most people don't factor in the "maintenance & repair" aspect of a new TV... or when considering a TV purchase... we recommend the following: Buy something that meets your budget, physical and features requirements, buy all the warranty you can afford, and Save The Box! Your gonna' need it. There is also a number of things you can do to cover yourself with regards to unnecessary future repair issues- Issues that could be for the most part easily avoided.
