Default This go here?

I found 2 tvs at bestbuy and someone linked me to one also. which one would you recommend.

1)The first one is this. http://www.outlet.philips.com/b2c_re...p=OUTLET#specs
I read some reviews and people said that it is not 1080i. http://www.pricegrabber.com/rating_g..._type=masterid
Some guy said that its resolution is 852x480, he got it from calling the company.

2)here the second
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1130981881933
Also, i have read reviews that it takes 20 seconds to boot up, no universal codes, and lose digital channel randomly.

Both of them would not recomment buying it. Also, one more con is that it sticks out 30 inches from the wall.

3) last one
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1142301899352
For this one, i cannot find anywhere where it actually states that it is 1080i. Can someone please tell me? Other than that, it is basically the same as the last one i think but flat screen lcd. Only reviews that i can find are here.

This one does not exactly say that it is 1080i either.


Or if you think that any are better, please say so for about a 500$ price range. Also, i want to make sure that all i have to do to play xbox 360 on 1080i is to just plug it in? no aftermarket cords?

Thanks for your help

I recommend the second TV.

For playing a 360 with 1080i resolution, just plug in the component cables that come with the XBOX, and then fiddle with the settings on the TV and the XBOX.
