LG. My 32" HD still looks better than a lot available now and is almost 2 years old.
I bought a 42" Toshiba 42X3030DB not long ago meself (30th June)
It cost me 'just' £896.00 at the time - which was already a bargain for a 42" 1080p! But it's now down to £859.99 - which is a steal for such a quality screen
Personally, I have a Sony Bavia 32 (KDL2350) I believe they now have the 3000 series out. When I was looking the best LCD on the market was the Samsung or Sony. Both of the panels (to a certain extent See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-LCD for more info) have some similar components, due to the joint venture in a manafactuing plant by both companies back in 2004. The main difference are things like the some components and the software.
Sony is more expensive than Samsung, but is the extra expense worth it? Personally I don't think so, even though I have the Sony (The shiney plastic of the Samsung didn't pass the Wife Acceptance Test ).
If you are looking at Plasma and money is not an issue, then Pioneer are regarded to have the best plasma screens by far.
LCD? How much is the nearest 1080p plasma in comparison?
Brand loyalty with the old generation like my parents is fierce. My mum wears the trousers and so always wants Sony. I think this is due to back in the day when our first telly was a Sony and one of the longest models was 20 odd years old before it kicked the bucket. this was all before the whole PS3/Root Kit/Exploding batterys/Ego boosting/ mess that they made for themselfs.
Personally quality, performance and price dictate where i shall be buying the next telly. And most likely it will be a 1080p Sammy/Tosh or LG unit.
Currently I would agree that 1080p30 (30 frames/sec) is the best deal - but keep an eye for the future use of higher bandwith broadcasting, because 1080p50 and even 1080p60 will inevitably be the ones to chose if you are not in a hurry!
Samsung Cheesecake. I have a 50" DLP Works great and Half-life 2 looks great on it!
get the 100hz samsung tulip range. (M87). available in 32" and 37" i believe.
My 42" Toshiba 42X3030DB 1080p LCD (linked to above... coincidentally post # 42 ) has 24, 50 and 60 input support
Who's that advice meant for And "Tulip"? Never heard of 'em?
