Looks like I have some reading to do...I'll have to decide if I want to purchase locally or online. Consumer reports likes Samsung as well..

I have been very happy with my Samsung 40" LCD(LN4069F(?)), only complaint is when watching football, the ball becomes a blur when it is thrown, this is in SD, HD seems to fix the issue.

Honestly Randy when I was looking to get a LCD the Sharp was highly rated no matter where I read. When I went to look at them the Aquos had the best picture of all the ones I had saw. I think this mishap with the tv was more of a fluke then anything else, I'm just glad we had the extended warranty.

You need a Monster Cable®, then all of your video problems would be solved, no more blur ;\) \:D \:o

Hi Sir Quack,

Stay away from Philips. Generally poor reliability over the years and it's too bad about Toshiba, which used to have excellent reliability in the days of VCRs and CRTs.

The best-looking images are from Sony and Samsung LCDs and Panasonic plasma. LG are really quite good, a hair behind the others. Sharp always looks great in demos at the CES show but terrible in stores, perhaps because their default picture is lousy or they're difficult to set up--I've never figured that one out. Pioneer tends to be wildly overpriced and, for me, underwhelming in demos despite all the critical raves about black levels. There's more to image quality than black levels!

Regards,

Alan

I actually just picked up a Sharp LC-46D64U within the last week.

I know it's not the latest model but I got it for $1199 CDN at the local Futureshop which seemed like a pretty good deal. Went on AVS to the calibration thread and found some suggested settings and the picture looks great. Very sharp and vibrant picture.

On a totally unrelated note, I was at my local a/v store returning a movie when I stopped to check out one of the more recent Sony LCDs. I really didn't like the picture at all.

Now, a year ago I loved the image on the high end Sony's. I guess I have adjusted to the softer image of my Sony RP.
