I just bought my first LCD HD set, starting out with a small set for the upstairs bedroom will get a bigger set for downstairs soon.
I got a 26" toshiba LCD HD and have to say i am completely blown away from by the picture. I seen many reviews stating what a great picture this set has and i believe it.
I upgraded my basic cable box to a HD DVR and my old DVD player to a $60 upconvert DVD player and couldnt be more happy.
The first thing I ever watched in HD was the Bears vs Colts game early this year and the picture so stunnig it almost made me cry.
Its a 720P set with every connector on the back you could imagine, i also have my computer hooked up to it and use it as a display, running windows xp and it looks great.
Next I am going to install Flatout Ultimate Carnage and see how that looks, lol.
model is toshiba 26AV500U and goes for around $500.
hope something helps
