A New TV?
Jan 1, 2011

OK, I totally understand this is a photography web site, but I really don't have anywhere else to turn. You guys are my "family", so to speak, and I'm in a little over my head about the purchase of a new TV. Maybe I'll look at my photo's on the new TV, who knows.

Is there any particular reason to either buy or avoid a LG 46" TV, model number LG 46LD550? Costco has it for a pretty good price and the spec's look good.

Forty six inches seems to be about the right size for my living room, and I don't foresee myself getting all crazy with internet access, 3D, or any other esoteric features. Picture In Picture seems like it would be a good thing, but I don't know if this TV supports that or not. My living room is well lit, and all the seating would be pretty much in front of the TV.

Separate question: This TV has a USB input. Does this mean I could stick a "Thumb Drive" (or whatever they may be called) into that port and see my pictures on screen? Is it likely there would would be some sort of Slide Show feature built into the TV, or would I have to manually change the pictures?

I'm looking for an education here. Any comments you care to make would be appreciated.
