Default Which LCD TV (LG, Samsung, or Sharp) to get?

I'm in the market to buy a new LCD tv as my old CRT is dying a slow death. So which one to get???

Requirements:
-32"
-1080P

@ Best Buy they are going to have this promotion where you bring in ur old TV and they'll give you $350 to spend on a new one :)


LG 32" 1080p LCD HDTV** (32LH30)

Samsung 32" 1080p LCD HDTV** (LN32B530)

Sharp Aquos 32" 1080p LCD HDTV** (LC32D64U)

Also, can the owners of these tv's share some thoughts.

THX

I haven't owned any of those, but I heard good things from Sharp.

Also, can you provide a link to this offer?

I have the Samsung 32" A550 (which is obviously an older model by now) and i absolutely love it. I use it to watch tv, as my computer monitor, as well for my 360, no complaints at all other then i bought it last summer before the price drops. That Sharp model is a Gone-When-Gone model (or Clearance, can't remember the numbering system), while the other 2 are at least current models that are at least this week not going to be gone when they are out of stock.

You have to have Bestbuy's Retail points card and be a member inorder to receive the offer. Apparently the deal starts July 3. Strange eh.

I'm leaning toward Samsung b/c my current CRT tV is a Samsung and its 16 years old... Wowo
Also, after comparing the specs i think that the sammy is better spec wise, but how bout picture quality? I watch both SD and HD channels. I also have the Philips upconverting DVD player.

jcmaz, if its the replacement model to what I have, the picture quality is great, its pretty good for SD content, because well its SD content. HD content looks great on it (even though HD channels typically are 1080i and not actually 1080p). The 1080p stuff of having it set as a desktop monitor setting and with he 360 look amazing as well. Just hope this is the replacement model to what i have so what i'm telling you isn't a waste of time, lol.

With regards to the Reward Zone Card offer, it looks like to me it starts on today and goes until the July 9th (this is what it tells me when i go log into my reward zone, it says check in store for more details though)

There is no doubt in my mind that my first LCD purchase will be a sharp aquos. Probably a 42". (has to have DVI for some gaming goodness)
