Default Help picking an LCD tv (I got it down to 3 choises)

I would like some help in picking an LCD tv, I got it down to 3 choices but I don't know much about display units so I was wondering if some of you can help me decide between them. Thay are: LG 32LG70 LG LCD Flat Panel - Model 32LG70: TV|Audio|Video > LCD Flat Panel > 32LG70; Samgsung LN32A550P3F LCD TV - televisions SAMSUNG; or the Sharp Aquos LC32D64U Sharp.ca Sharp at Home

They are all around the same price at futureshop. So which one do you think I should get?

I've been using the LC32D64U for ~ 5-6 months as my display and absolutely love it. I have absolutely no complaints with it.

None really. VGA only will do 1600x1200. But who still uses VGA these days. The TV came in demo mode (they aren't suppose to) but it was rather easy to fix. Besides that colours were set rather well. Firmware is also really easy to update.

Well I use my TV for xbox, wii, macbook pro, pc, and satellite. But I use a receiver to switch between them all. And am only using HDMI between the receiver and the TV. I have used components, DVI, HDMI on the TV though. All of which looked great.

For a good entry level lcd tv I simply cannot stress enough the Sharp Aquos series.. for the price and picture they are unbeatable.

Future shop has the LC37D64U (37") on for $899. $100 more than the 32" with a wall mount for an extra $30. I traded the 32" in yesterday (had it for less than 30 days) Loved the 32" So far so good with this model. Having it farther away is really good on my old assed eyes.
