This will be my first HDTV or flat panel purchase and I've narrowed down my choices to one of these two models: the Sharp Aquos LC-37D40U and the Sony Bravia KDL40S2000. For one thing, they are both available (albeit with slightly different model numbers) at Costco, and I have a $1500 store credit to spend there. Here are the pros vs. cons of each, as I see them.

Sharp Aquos LC-37D40U

PROS
about $400 cheaper than the Sony
2 HDMI inputs

CONS
obviously, it's 3" smaller
i'm not crazy about the black on silver front bezel
tv doesn't swivel

Sony Bravia KDL40S2000

PROS
screen is 3" bigger
the stand swivels
i like the silver finish

CONS
$400 more expensive
only 1 HDMI input

I honestly can't tell the difference in picture quality. Is there one? I realize it's subjective, but does there seem to be any consensus of opinion? Are there any pros/cons I might be missing?

Thanks in advance for any help or insight you can provide.

I doubt if you will see much difference in PQ.
