    I am looking for a LCD or plasma that fits in our entertainment center that is 38.5" wide. What I figure is any 37" LCD/Plasma with speakers on the bottom or detactable will fit. I need some advice on what I am looking for an what brands are going to give me the best for the money. I have looked around a bit but going store to store is hard to tell what sets have the advantage. I really want crisp lines. I have seen some sets that have the "fuzzy edge" that I don't like I am willing to spend a little bit more.

    I have been impressed with the samsung 40" LCD but it doesn't fit and I don't think they make a 37" version. I was also looking into the Protron 37" that sears sells - The specs look really good when comparing the brightness, speed, contrast ratio, and native resolution.

    I am really at a loss here and would like to make a decision on brand and model then I'll look around for the best price. Thank you for any help you can provide.

    Kevin

    Sorry, I forgot to mention - It will be used with some HD signals from a satellite provider and local signals.

    37" isn't a real common size -- I know 'cause that's what I needed too. This one:

    http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs...00000000005702

    has had consistently good reviews.

    There's been one of those sitting in my family room for two weeks now and I'm very happy with it for SD, DVD and HD over-the-air viewing. Oh, and it sound's like you and I own the same #@$! furniture [​IMG] That's exactly the measurement I had to work with and the Panasonic just fits for height and width.

    The only nit I could complain about on the Panny 37" is that there are no front panel inputs.

    LG has a 37" that I've been considering. All of the user reviews I've read have been excellent.

    Circuit City has a Hitachi 37" LCD set that seems to meet your specs. Have never seen it, so I can't give you personal reaction to it.

    Regards,
