Looking for new TV to replace monitor

by Omega_Nemesis28 / August 7, 2008 9:55 PM PDT

I REALLY want a new 1080p TV to replace my monitor. Right now I have a Samsung 226BW and now that Ive got my cable box in my room, it just doesn't feel right watching TV on it. Not to mention, I would love to get my PS3 into my room so I dont have to run up and down stairs (yes, Im that lazy) to play and stuff.

So I'm looking for a new 1080p TV that isn't too big, has enough inputs for me, is cheap, and can be bought from a reputable site or store.

Size
Anywhere from 30" - 40"ish.

Inputs
At LEAST 2 HDMIs, and a VGA or DVI input (if no VGA or DVI input, then at least 3 HDMI inputs)

Cheap
As in anywhere from $800-$1200

Preferably LCD cause Im sitting close.

For some time now I've been eyeballing...

Any thoughts or other suggestions?

They're all nice TVs, I'd go for the Panny if you plan on watching sports since the other LCDs have 60hz refresh rate.
