*I don't need to buy right away, seeing as I intend to move out at earliest next summer.*
EDIT: in writing this, I kinda see that C is more of the right option.
C unless you really want the best in PQ and don't care so much about how thin the set is.
I believe Sony has discontinued their local dimming set the XBR8. It's a great set and if you really want the best LCD for PQ you may still be able to find a few around in stores (this is why you shouldn't wait if this is what you want). They discontinued them because they were a bit costly to produce for them. There is no official news of a model coming out to replace it, so it may be the last of a dying breed.
I have a 55" XBR8 and I am really happy with it.
