60% JVC (should be #1 on interpolation and a good 10bit panel)
20% Mitz 144/244 (know for integrating good chips with a good panel)
10% Tosh 177(good panel & processor, but needs a fix)
Now, with NuVision's new models:
30% NuVision NVU52DCM(Sharp panel, Realta, maybe strobing BLU & 120Hz)
5% Sammy(new non glare model (but no 52" announced.))
Now for the disclaimer - Sharp will introduce a new model with "Advanced" motion interpolation. Syntax is doing a 65" with the Sharp panel and Realta.
Others will be doing LED BLUs, and maybe someone will license Brightsides Local Dimming. Obviously, we need to see if Sharp gets the banding out of the new panels for each size.
Bottom line, the dominate consideration is the "jerk factor." Defined in an article I read about selecting high tech stuff. It's this simple: "Ask yourself one simple question - six months from now will I look back and feel like a jerk."
On black Friday, all the new models will be out, we will know which ones have problems, performance will have be evaluated and the price will be right.
