    I have a 61" Samsung DLP and love it. :) Rear-projection (DLP or LCoS) is still the best way to get a bigger screen and not get reamed on cost. Plasma isn't so good in a room that isn't dark, and LCD is cheaper anyway. For a small-to-midsize screen I'd go with LCD and I do like Samsung's lineup.

    Be aware of concerns with VIZIO and others regarding after warranty repairs. See

    I check back to see how the reports keep coming in on the "good, bad, and ugly" of the TIVO board members. I just want to go in the store and buy one right now, but timing is everything and I must wait. Plus all the posters are giving feedback about TIVO HD and Series 3 and the software upgrade problems. It's a great community.

    Every HD LCD TV in my house is Samsung, total of 4. Have never had an issue and they seem to be the best right out of the box, and pricing has always been competitive with the market. Your best bet would be to head to one of the big box stores and compare the pictures on all the different TV's and buy what you think looks best. Each person has their own opinions so you will likely have all the brand loyalists recommending their own. At the end of the day it's a personal decision and only you have to like it.

    I have a Sony and a Vizio and I love 'em both for different reasons.

    Personally I prefer a Panasonic Plasma. You can get a size up for the same price as those LCDs.

    LCDs provide the least glare. I have a Westinghouse 42". I had an early model Westinghouse 32" and it had some firmware bugs, so 1 year later, Westinghouse issued a 'call number' to Best Buy. I returned the TV to Best Buy, got a 100% store credit and bought a 42" at the same price. The firmware bugs are gone. The panels on the Westinghouse are the same panels used in higher priced TVs. I'm not going to claim which models match which panels from other manufacturers because I haven't really paid close attention in a year, but, on avsforum there are some serious videophiles. You can find some really cheap deals on the Westinghouse from time to time - solidsignal was running specials this month. Highly recommended...
