Both are quite useful IMHO. You need to have some background info then see how the tv works for you.

Surprised no one has mentioned dlp. From what I've read, there's more bang for the buck. Samsung's 42 inch is rated quite high and you can find it online for around 700-800.

well, just purchased a 40" Samsung LCD HDTV (720p) as a b-day gift for a friend. the local Fry's has a great deal going on Samsungs. i don't know how Best Buy can compete.

if money was not an issue, i probably would have gone with a Sony Bravia. best picture hands down. a Sharp Aquos could have been a contender if they made a 40". but the Samsungs i felt were the best bang for the buck. and i'll admit that i took the lesser known names out of consideration immediately.

1. See what you want for sale new in a store, note its price.
2. Buy something for 1/4 of that price, used.
3. Wait two years.
4. Repeat.

I'm saving for an Apple 30 inch HD display.

we got the Aquos in 52"... it's the fancy one with the 120hz whatever and all the latest shit. We're just waiting for the people to come wall mount it.

I have the Samsung 1080p and am very happy with it.

Didn't like the picture on the Aquos and the Sony just didn't seem to be worth an extra 30%.

Hopping in this thread because I'm looking at Samsungs also. So, I don't want a 720p because the horrific picture quality will fry my retinas?

Just purchased a Samsung 40" flat panel LCD 1080p. Crazy to have leapt to this from a 27" tube TV. Satisfied so far.

The best part about flat panels, are the ability to easily fit them in with your decor. Once you get use to watching them, you notice tube tv's look large and somewhat out of place.

Exactly. On our new Amish hutch base the tube tv looked ridiculous, but a flat panel is like a picture or something. Seamless fit next to a 1930s clock on the fireplace mantle.

Did you get the 4061 or the 4065? I saw the 65 series over the weekend. The picture is outstanding -- almost plasma-like -- but the screen also has plasma-like glare in lighted rooms.
