Oh god no, please. We have the Westinghouse at work and it's image quality is sub par. The black levels are just severely lacking. On top of that, we've had a lot of reliability issues with Westinghouse across their line of LCD's.

If you shop around, you should find the Sharp LC-42D62U available for under 2 g's.

It's a 720p television, not 1080i. It will accept 1080i, but only display 720p.

A) That was a fast response

B) God damnit I hate tv shopping.

well I wanna be a little future proof

Future proof for what though? The only real 1080p content for the next few years is going to be HD-DVD and Blu-ray. Broadcast stuff is limited by bandwidth and I don't think we'll be seeing any 1080p broadcasts, never mind full time 1080p. for quite a while (think 8 years down the road). The market is simply moving too quickly to sit back and wait to future proof yourself.

Yes, but you are barely going to notice a difference (if at all) at this size range. 1080p only really shines at sizes above 50", IMO.
