Went with a Samsung 42 in pdp with 3d. Dropped the idea of the projector for sometime later as I was getting too confused, and went to check TVs only.
One toshiba guy was offering a sweet deal on a 40 in smart 3d, but only had the display piece, for 55k. Fished some more and picked up the Samsung for 42k, 2 years warranty, 2 active 3d glasses included.

This TV is turning out to be quite fun.
It does render good 2d to 3d conversion. I painted a 10x8 ft section on the wall behind the tv black, and with a dark room, it was quite good fun to watch a non-3d Gatsby rendered by the TV.

Just wanted one clarity, though. This rendering, its more of a depth effect, than a pop-out you typically associate with #d movies?
Will getting a proper 3d content file playing on it give the pop-out effect?

I would suggest try the sample 3D videos from LG and Samsung. They are pretty good and you can test them out personally and see the results.

Videos should be easily available for download through some sites.

I have a Samsung smart TV (Series-6, 40F6515). When I use the YouTube App on the TV, is there a way to control the resolution? Is there a way to make sure that the 1080p clips available are actually streaming at that resolution?

I think, it is dependent on bandwidth that you have. If your network is capable of delivering more speed, your video quality changes. Also youtube provides option to change the same manually. My experience after using 2 mbps and 15 mbps connections back to back on same PC.

Bandwidth is not a limiting factor for me. However, I have noticed that when I play YouTube videos on my PC, they do not start playing at 1080p by default. I have to manually change it to 1080p (as you also mentioned) and then it streams in HD without any issues. I suspect that when I play HD YouTube videos directly on the TV, it doesn't start at 1080p either. However, I do not see any option to manually change the quality setting when I play YouTube videos directly on the TV.

Guys, any information/recommendations about 20 odd inch touchscreen monitors? I am assuming all of them would come with atleast one HDMI in.

The plan is to connect the Android stick and mount it either in the Kitchen or a kitchen trolley which the wifey or I could wheel around as required. Since I have a pretty reliable wifi connection in the house, having an arrangement like this would work awesomely to watch a cooking show in the kitchen or a movie in the terrace.

Any thoughts? I've seen a couple online but I'm not sure if a price of around 20K is a good buy.

Anyone figured out a way to connect your Apple devices to the TV wireless apart from Apple tv? I use youtube.com/pair for video. Works well. But cannot find any other screen mirroring options.

Hello everyone, I wanted to buy a 65" or higher LED TV (full HD) with additional features of 3D, Internet TV etc within the budget of 2 lacs. But it seems I have to increase my budget for at least a lac to get one. The only one I am getting within the budget is the Plasma TV SamSung 64F8500 series 64". I was wondering if any one of you have this particular model and how good and reliable it is? (picture quality, brightness and for gaming).

For this size you should look at Panasonic for Plasma and Sharp, Sony & Hitachi for LED panels. Having said that, in terms of the latest connectivity/smart features Samsung is unbeatable.

Guys which is the most reliable and long lasting LED at budget of 40K and 40 inch size ? For me only size and reliability matter.

Thanks

Got a 42" Samsung for 43.5k two months back, grey market. Check this thread for reliability, If you are particular about it go with an extended warranty option with sellers like Croma, but then price is different.

You can check Toshiba P2305 or L3300 series. Comes with 3 year warranty.

How are you concealing the wires when you install the TV on the wall. Also are these types of low profile wiring ducts available in the India? These can be painted to match the wall color.
