Some real cheapies on that list. What did you like best about the panny plasma? Will the tv be watched at night?
Samsung makes a good tv but the eh models have lighter blacks (less contrast in darker viewing areas).
If you can get a 2011 samsung lcd model like the ln-d630 (120 hz) or the ln-d550 (60 hz) it would be a great deal. Edge lit led/lcds often have poor screen brightness uniformity in comparison to lcds and while this years Samsung led models have improved in that aspect they also have lighter blacks. There are some nice Sony sets out there as well like the bx520 and bx420.
Panasonic hasn't made great lcds in the past as their focus is on plasmas and brands like dynex, westinghouse and insignia might have decent picture quality (hit or miss) but your taking a risk with the quality of the product.
EDIT: Looks like Sony doesn't make any 37 inchers.
