You're right.

The differences are diminishing fast. Today it's usually all about connections, tuners, features, contrast ratios, NITs and more.

But basically you should see the differences diminishing each month.

have one and love it!

hi
I had the same question and was researching the web. Could not find answers so took my laptop to a TV store
and started plugging it into random tv's.
Results:
On any 720p tv (so called HD ready) the windows and 3D games look silly because resolution is too low.
On 1080p tv (full HD) it is a different story, windows and 3D games look fantastic.

Model I choose is Samsung LE32C530 because it gives balanced colours and crisp detail no matter from which
angle you look at it. Max resolution on it is 1920 x 1080 pixels.

I suggest take a laptop and go to the shop to see with your own eyes Happy cheers!
