I say LG. LG tends to make the high quality S-IPS panels that most monitor manufacturers use in their expensive monitors. I trust their quality.

i never really liked toshiba as a brand itself,but their laptops are nice but in terms of monitor and TV i would vote for LG just because i love their designs and their image quality is amazing.

I have an LG 40" 1080P looks just like that pic. Basically the same features also. Purchased mine March of 09' and the picture is excellent. I found it much better than the Toshiba's. The only downfall to this TV is the sound. The speakers are on the bottom of the set. They face down. Sorta odd setup, but it's to make the front look sleek/shiny (which it does). I love mine. I just use surround through a Sony receiver. ;)

Toshiba were still making VHS and cathodic TV while LG were starting to produce LCD ans dvd players. More experience and knowledge from LG. I have an LG and really satisfied. A dead pixel 2 months after the beginning but lasomt naked to the eye.

I purchased that same LG for the bedroom. It was a Christmas present for the wife, as she complained she could not read the print on the smaller Phillips.

She loves it. It has a great picture for an entry level screen, as it gives 42" plasma downstairs a run for the money.

IMO, I would have to say, LG. Great price, good picture. Newegg got it to me in 2 days with the free shipping.:)

Google "LG.Philips LCD Co. Ltd" or "LG Philips lcd" if you've seen a Philips lcd then you've seen an LG.
LG and Philips have a joint venture in lcds so they have one manufacturer for both LG and Philips lcd screens.

I've got one of these LG LCD's. It's sweet and was a great deal. The picture is excellent! Hooked up through my Sony Receiver for surround and adding a PS3 for Blu-Ray it's a nice setup. ;)

I own that Toshiba HDTV for about 6 months and it's been great. And their tech support has been one of the best to me and no that don't mean i have had problems with it just a lot of questions.

With that Toshiba model the sound sucks from it but most TV sound does anyways and another thought is your best to keep the unit 6-8 inches away from the wall so it can breath fully.

If you test LCDs in walmart you need to mess with them and set them up to your requirements too.

Just buy a few though walmart as long as you keep the receipt and return it within 3 months you'll get ya money back :).

Anyway been totally happy with my Toshiba. Although there DVD players are what suck ass.

Mine is hooked up to 2 PC's and PS3.

Actually, LG means Lucky Goldstar, which is the product of the old south korean Goldstar electronics congolmerate, they currently share panel manufacturing with royal dutch philips,

also some of the current LG models can me modded to playback Xvid, Divx and H264 (in MKV) from the usb port using an external hard drive, its a plus,

The USB 2.0 support as stated above is a BIG PLUS. But your best bet is to just look at the TV's and don't let the salesmen try and get you to pick this or that. I own an LG and a Vizio. I have the Vizio in my bedroom (32") and it is excellent also. Both play DVD's, PS3, HDTV, Blu-Ray great. It's really on the user. If you're into sports, fast action, etc. look for TV's that fit that need. Same with Movies etc. The technology will continue to keep changing so you will never be up to date with the TV. Now they have full LED 1 1/2" width TV's with 240 Refresh Rate, Contrast Ratio of 3000000:1, 4ms response time. So a TV that was new 6 months ago isn't comparable to a TV that came out on the market recently.

Go HERE and read up. ;)

please stop incessantly bumping your threads every 30 mins. It is customary to wait 24 hours to allow people to help you, versus almost demanding it the way you bump your threads.

Actually, LG means Lucky Goldstar, which is the product of the old south korean Goldstar electronics congolmerate, they currently share panel manufacturing with royal dutch philips,

also some of the current LG models can me modded to playback Xvid, Divx and H264 (in MKV) from the usb port using an external hard drive, its a plus,
That's the one i was looking for, i just couldn't remember the name.

When Lucky Goldstar was sold here in AUS (it was called by that name back then) it was the mega Cheap ass brand. Now its just named as LG = Life's Good (slogan) and has done well in sales since, but was the cheap brand of the 90's. Go Toshiba.
