This is the one I think I'm going for as it meets my check list.
A brand name: It's Samsung
LED: (not edge lit which I know makes it deeper but seems like back lighting is better than edge lighting)
1080P: wouldn't want anythign less
120 Hz: is 120 without the CMR which seems to be garbage
Bonuses: under budget, 3D, Ethernet port.
Overall: would like to go 50 or 51" inch but cant find one that's 120 Hz and 1080P LED that doesn't maximize my budget.
