i need a new tv. there aren't many games that support full hd.
so should i buy a hd ready or a full hd tv?

i don't play 360 all the time. so i don't need a perfect tv.
i don't wanna spend more than 600.

which tv do you recommend me?

I think you've got your terms screwed up

FullHD = 1080p

HDReady = Does not support OTA HD transmissions

completely unrelated.

I'm assuming you're talking about resolutions, if so I'd recommend getting something 1280x720 or higher. Watch out for plasmas with odd-ball resolutions.

If you want more indepth advice you can read my article on the subject.

Definitely read twisted's writeup above!

As mentioned, HD-ready indicates no HD tuner. If you plan on watching "TV" over digital cable or satellite, (or any separate box, basically) then you don't need the tuner, and can save a couple hundred bucks.

Definitely go 720p or higher. Newer 720p LCD and plasma panels are 1366x720 instead of 1280x720... Best bang for the buck" right now looks like one of the Westinghouse 1080p LCDs...
