I bought a 37" through Radio Shack almost exactly a year ago for the baseball playoffs after doing a ton of research. The TV is amazing at any price, but the prices are astounding, too - at least $500 less than so called Name Brands. It has more inputs than you can ever imagine using, especially if you have a Audio/Video reciever. In fact, the sound processing on the TV is so darn good, you wouldn't be forced to buy a separate AV receiver - you could just use the TV to handle it all. You would not have to use the attached speakers either. The picture is consistent and with some easy adjustment it can achieve true blacks so there's nothing lost compared to plasma. All of the user reviews are through the roof, too. It's a little scary taking a chance on an unknown brand with a thousand dollars, but the other reviewers really helped me take the leap last year. I believe Syntax/Olevia now has some sort or arrangment with Hitachi. I think the LCD screens have always beeen made by Hitachi, too. The only drawbacks to these TVs is the lame remote, no HDMI input and no ability to change the onscreen name of the inputs. Almost everyone uses some other multi-function remote, anyway, so that's no biggie. It does have DVI,SVGA,Component,Composite, RF and S-Video inputs (several).
