    46" Samsung LCD in bedroom is wall mounted. 52" Samsung LCD in the livingroom is on top of a low entertainment center for all the AV gear and game consoles.

    If you want a nice wall mount that is cheap go to monoprice.com. They also have great HDMI cables.

    I can't figure out whether to get LCD, LED, or Plasma.

    It's all very confusing.

    Depends on a few factors. Plasma still has the best picture, the best blacks, best for motion but they're heavier, produce more heat and use more electricity.

    I would only get an LED if it's direct lit (local dimming)...edge lit models can't produce deep blacks and sometimes aren't as accurate in colors.

    The regular CFL LCDs are still nice also.

    Oh yeah, LCD = crappy viewing angle. If you watch it any more than 15 degrees off center then all the colors get washed out.

    I'm about to buy another set and Plasma is my choice still.

    The "TV/Film" forum is for discussion of movies and television programs, not about tv sets (forum subtitle, "Talk about tv shows and movies").

    Thread moved to the Lounge for you. ;)

    I have 2 that are mounted and two that are not. The 2 that are mounted its a space/aesthetics reason that they are mounted.

    I hate when wall mounted units have wires dangling down.... rca chords dropped down to Blueray/dvd. Cable wire dropping down....

    If you don't have a good way to conceal wires or account for them.... why do it.

    well, you did it right.... Can't stand the "I don't know what I'm doing" form of wiring
