We just wanted a seldom watched low end panel for a bedroom. We bought a Vizio 32". It replaced a 3 y.o. Panny LCD that died after under 1000 hours.
It is mounted on the wall about 10' from the head of the bed. Picture viewing from anywhere on the bed is perfect. If you stand just a foot to the side of the bed, the picture starts to disappear. That wasn't the case with the old LCD.
Of course our main viewing is on a plasma which can be viewed from almost any angle.

I had the same issue with the Sony HX850. Returned it and stuck with my Sony XBR4 LCD.

Depends on the panel technology used by the manufacturer.
Most are PVA with a limited viewing angle but goof black levels, some use IPS (like LG) which is a lot more stable concerning the viewing angle but has a somewhat lesser black level and is somewhat slower in response time.
Look for the panel technology used by the manufacturer with the data sheets provided and then google for the specs.
