    The new Sharp D90U series and the new Bravia XBR2 series would both be good choices. Both lines have native 1920x1080 displays. How big are you looking at? Keep in mind that LCDs can get pretty steep in price as you go up in size.

    Yeah, the D90U in 65" will cost some serious coin, like $20,000.

    I'm in the same boat as Glen. I'm looking for a 32" LCD to use as a secondary TV in my bedroom for use with DVD/HD-DVD, HD Cable, and a Mac Mini.

    How is the Dell line?

    I was at Circuit City today and came across my next big ticket buy...Bravia XBR2 has got to be the sweetest thing i saw in a long time...So i decided that i'm going to get that badboy next month to replace my Hitachi.

    Whats the deal with Bravias that they seem to cost twice what comparable size sets from other manufacturers cost? What makes them so special?

    I need a 56" TV for an affordable price, so an LCD is out of the question, but I have always wondered why the Bravias are so darn expensive.

    I have to admit, the best LCD I've ever seen is the new Sony Bravia XBR2.

    Samsung has a new 40 inch LCD that is 1080p that looks super in the display at local Best Buy hooked up to Blu-ray. See the Best Buy web site for current pricing) The XBR2 (46 inch) on display hooked to HD DVD looks really super. I am considering the XBR2 and find that early reviews rave about how it handles HIGH DEFINITION but that it falls short on non HD signals.
     
  9. Samsung also has a 46" 1080p model that should be identical to the 40".

    At my CC the 46" is going for $3,400, which is much cheaper than the XBR2.

    If the Samsung hits 3K, I'll probably get it assuming the new Sharps aren't stunning and cheap.

    I've locked in on 46" LCD as my target, it's just a question of which one now.

    If you want to get truly insane, Toshiba has a ~4kx2k 56" LCD that looks fantastic - at least with stills (they weren't running motion on it, 'cause they had something of a cumbersome setup driving it - a PC with four DVI video cards in it..)

    I am not an expert on TVs, but I was in a store recently and the picture on the 37" ViewSonic I was looking at was very crisp. The price was very good also.

    Other members please chime in.....
