Probably WAY to early to ask this but...

Can anyone recommend a good TV to pick up to use with the Wii U?

My old TV works fine but it's REALLY starting to show it's age. Not really looking for anything specific but would prefer some form of connection in the front/side that can be reached easily and no 3D since I'll probably never use it.

P.S. My budget is $1500.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Dude. $1500? Reach for the stars. You could cover a whole wall with a non-3D 1080p TV at that price. Seriously, you could spend $800-1000 and get a 55-60" beautiful 1080p LED TV..

Check out black friday deals. I'm sure people will talk bad about them here, but I have a 55" 1080p LED Insignia that I bought a year ago and it is perfect for gaming. Beautiful picture with the settings set right. Cost me $899 a year ago.

I live in Canada so there really isn't much in the way of Black Friday deals. Also, and I probably should have mentioned this, I don't plan on buying anything till next year.

What size are you looking at?

Haven't got a measurement with me at the time but if I had to estimate I'd say somewhere between 30"-40" is my maximum so anywhere inbetween would be alright though I think 36" might be optimal for me.

I got a 55 in LG 3D LED tv for that price. Best Buy has them...even cheaper than that if you want the older model. I highly recommend spending a little extra for the 3D. On LG tv's the glasses are super cheap (the ones from the theater work on it) and the movies look awesome. Trust me on that. People hate on 3D a lot these days, but I think you'll love it.

Go for a 42" if you can fit it. A LOT of HDTVs are default 42". That was also my first HDTV size. Do you have a brand preference? I have owned a Sharp Aquos and now I have an Insignia and there are better "top of the line" models out there.

I would suggest setting your sites on a 500-700 dollar LED, 1080p/120hz TV that looks the best to you. $1500 is WAY too much for the size you are looking at. Get the biggest 1080p TV that looks the best to you that you can fit. Panasonic, Samsung, Insignia, Sharp all have models that I have considered at one point and I have bought a few.

Hope this helps.

Lemmy- I agree that a lot of people hate on 3D, many for no reason at all, but I'm not one of them I just don't see myself ever using it(I don't even use it on my 3DS). No point in paying extra for something that you're never going to use right?

Overkill- 42" might be pushing it but like I said I haven't got an exact measurement at the time so I can't say for sure. I don't have a brand preference but I will look into the brands you have suggested thanks.

walmart has a 40 inch for like 300 dollars just buy that

Will you use it only for gaming? If so get a plasma TV. Panasonic makes the best plasma TVs.

If you intend to use it for other stuff, get a Samsung LED.
