It's been a long time since I started hunting for a new TV, like 2 years long. I've been through so many models, features, and options that I could honestly say I know too much about TV's. Last week I broke down and placed my order.
I finally choose a Sharp Aquas 42" 1080P. I have always heard great things about the Sharp Aquas line, and after connecting the TV, I can say that there's good reason. The quality out of the box is great, requiring only a minor adjustment. The built-in speakers were nice, but I have the surround sound setup, so I didn't need them. I am in the process of ordering some HDMI cables from http://www.monoprice.com/, which is by FARRRR the cheapest place to order cables for anything!
I always buy online, because the deals are truly unbeatable. Newegg.com had the best price, as usual, and offered free shipping and no tax! Got the new setup hooked up today, and it looks amazing. Here's a link to the specs and reviews if you're interested. Sharp Aquas TV at Newegg.com
