    I've finally decided to save up and get an HDTV, but since I haven't been paying all that much attention to them lately, I'm not sure what brand might be better to go with. I'm looking for 1080p in a 46-47" panel, though I'll take slight variation in size. Sam's of course has the usual selection of Vizios for around 1200. They also have one that's a Samsung for aroung 1600 that looks really nice. I think it's this one but I'm not 100% sure, I'd have to go back and check the store to tell you. Anyway, I was just wondering if there are any good beat-all panels in that range or if that would be a good choice Thanks!

    I can't say anything bad about my Samsungs..... I got 3 guys in my department to buy them as well.

    Mine's not a 46" (it's 42") but I picked up a Magnanox with 1080p about ten months ago for $1000 and it has yet to cause me problems. Picture quality is superb.

    hmmm, cool. Sam's has some mitsubishis as well I think, I might take a look while I'm there this afternoon. Anyone else?

    Well I confirmed that Samsung is the one that sam's has, and they have it for $1598, which is pretty good considering the MSRP weighs in at $2k. I've pretty much decided that's the one I'm going to get unless someone has another big success. Part of why I like it so much is the blacks. They are actually black, which is saying something for an LCD panel.
