I did a bunch of shopping today, and think that I have decided to drop the whole LCD/DVD combo idea. For around $100, I can run some long ass component cables through the wall from the TV to my nightstand, where I'll "hide" the DVD player. Sticking with the combo TV just limited my options too much.
I went to Best Buy, Circuit City, Starpower, Sams and Wal-Mart looking at LCD's, and at the end of the day, I think I'm going to end up with a 42" Vizio at Wal-Mart for $899. It's only 720p, but that'll be just fine for my bedroom.
Now, for the next question......
Do I need to drop $80 on a mount??? They look SO basic in construction, and I'm just having a hard time paying that much money for a bracket. I don't need a full articulating one, just one that tilts forward. I checked Ebay, and they have some less expensive ones, but they all seem to want to try and scam on the shipping ($30-$50 I've seen), which brings the cost back fairly close.
Anyone have any insight on mounts for 42" LCD?
