    I'm in the market for one of those new fangled LCD tvs. I'm not looking for a big one. Probably 37". I've heard that there is a particular size and lower that getting a 1080 vs a 720 really won't make a difference. As of right now I don't own a bluray player and probably won't for a while. I don't mind investing in the future, but if the difference between the two is only going to be negligable, I'll get a 720.

    I understand what 720 vs 1080 means, just not if it is worth it with such a small screen.

    Edumacate away...

    with a 37", if you're watching blurays, you will notice a difference.


    Samsung 1080p LCD. Do it or forever be disappointed.

    I wouldn't get anything less than a 40". It'll still be under a grand. Sony or Samsung are the two that have impressed me the most with picture quality. And theres no question I'd get 1080P it's only maybe $150-200 bucks more.

    32" seems to be the size cut off for 1080p - worth it or not.

    for a 37 I would go with 1080p. Samsung or Sharp Aquos.

    No it will be a samsung, just 37" is the right size for the room. I missed the boxing day sale at bestbuy for a samsung 37" 1080p for $699.

    My living room doesn't have enough room for anything more than a 37", unless I wall mount which I don't want to.
