Hi, My dad just sold his LG 52" HDTV 52LG60 (old model) and would like to bring one from his trip to NYC including a new speaker system..
He specifically wants a 60"-60" inch HDTV and a easy to set up home theater all for <$2000US
He wont take advantage of a high end Smart TV or extra features (like 3D, 4k, Curved, etc..) because he's 54 and mainly watches discovery channel lol Unless I use it while hes not around wink.gif

So I'm thinking to have my sister from NYC help him buy it online instead of a local store (most def get ripped off). and I've eyeing these models on Amazon which are top rated by customers:

Sony KDL60W630B 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED TV

LG Electronics 60LB5900 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz LED TV

LG Electronics 60LB6300 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED TV or 65 inch for $1300?

which of these would be a better buy and why? or can you recommend others?

Now as far as tv seaker system I know little about but I saw the best seller on amazon which received Best Product of CES 2013 award that looks simple and doesn't break the bank:

VIZIO S4251w-B4 5.1 Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer and Satellite Speakers

what do you guys think? do you know other setup that is a better value? please help

The tv's you have are all fine, as long as it's 1080p and LED back lit and a reputable brand. Although certain makes like the sharp aquos have particularly clear displays.

It's the sound system I would put a little more into. Pioneer has some very well reviewed surround systems for a reasonable price.

Also, you may want to consider that right now might not be the best time for an upgrade unless you plan to upgrade again after 3-5 years. This is because of UHD/4k hitting consumers and by then you will probably see a lot more 4k source media

Oh and discovery channel is often one of the first to offer the latest resolution :)
