Samsung LN-S4696D

This is the first new TV I've bought in over 10 years. It is an LCD which means it's very, very bright and doesn't have burn in problems like a plasma. It has a great viewing angle so you can see it perfectly from anywhere--as opposed to the rear projection sets. It is 1080p--the best HD you can get. Of course, no one is putting out 1080p signals yet (i.e. cable, video games, etc), so you don't really get to see the power of this set for another year or two. Netflix is now sending out HD DVD and Blueray DVDs so in another couple of months (after the holiday) I'm gonna buy an HD DVD player--by then there should be one that plays both BlueRay and HDDVD format.
