    Please advice me on the purchase of one of these. I'm replacing my 19" bedroom TV with a flat-screen 27"TV. BUT my budget is strictly $400 and ONLY these 2 fits my budget.

    I did visit my local BBuy today and tested both these TV's and so far, it looks the Sharps flat-screen outdoes the Samsung by a mile. The 550 lines of res for the Samsung doesn't cut the picture that much and a lack of S-Video and
    bottom positioned speakers doesn't compare favourably to the Sharps TV.

    On the other hand, the Sharps TV had much cleaner cable picture and I tested the 16:9 mode too from the remote and the view was awesome. The simulated surround sound also was quite good (I had the sales rep put on a "Black Hawk Down" DVD on the set).

    Though, a lot of people on this board, seem to have good experiance with the Samsung while Sharps have been associated with unreliabilty which pulls me in favor of the SSung.

    But as it is, I'm very much tempted to buy the Sharps flat-screen, and of course, the 4yr BB warrantee BUT I wanna get views from u pros too.

    Obviously, this Sharps set is a newcomer so there isn't a lot of reviews on the net but if u've had experiance with this set, please let me know ASAP as I'll be buying this TV in the weekend.

    Any info appreciated.
