So, after finally saving some money from work, I've decided to invest into a HDTV. Sad part is, I haven't researched very much. All I mostly know is that either a 32 or 37 will work in my room, and front cable ports are something I'd perfer. Besides that, I don't really know any good brands (besides the obvious Bravias and Samsungs all around). So, I come for help. Do any of you guys have any tips of what I should look for in a HDTV, primarily for gaming? Any good brands I should look into, stuff I should avoid, and any other good tidbits would be great.
P.S: I'm also looking for a easy way to record gameplay also. I've found something called the Dazzle, but I'm looking around a bit more before I pay 50 or 70+ dollars for one. From what I've seen though, it works.
