Default Need a big tv

Well, I need a big 52" or larger 1080p tv. I don't know if you guys know much about tvs, but I would like a recommendation on one in this range. I may hook up a computer to it, or I may not. It has not yet been decided. If I did, it would have a bluray drive in it of course.

Edit: Any recommendations on a surround sound system?

Dude the 6 series has some problems, I'd go with the 7, or 8 series instead, but if he's on a budget, I'd go with the 5 series, the one I have. It's pretty awesome, if you ask me. Only $1.5 k too.

I'd go with the 9 series It is the newest. If you're gonna spend that much, might as well get the latest.

around $2000 is the budget

Also, if the tv you recommend is available at bestbuy or something, let me know. This tv is for my parents, and they probably want to do that, but if the deal is good enough on newegg, I think I can convince them. They also said something about white glove delivery on amazon. I guess you get free delivery and they set it up for you. I guess that is what they want to do the most. I don't think setting up a tv is that hard personally.

Also, any recommendations on a surround sound system?

What about this one: Amazon.com: Samsung LN52A750 52-Inch 1080p DLNA LCD HDTV with RED Touch of Color: Electronics

They seem to want this one because of the Amazon thing. Is it as good as that other one and what is this red crap they're talking about?
