Thanks for your support. I have removed the poll because I don't think I'll be able to fit a CCF backlit or plasma panel with a viewing area more than 42 inches on my bottom shelf. However, if I go with an LED backlit LCD panel, I can fit a viewing area of up to 47 inches, and possibly 50 inches. I finally have it narrowed down to two models by Sony. Here's the way I see it. Insignia, JVC, LG, Panasonic, Philips, Sharp, Samsung, Toshiba, and Visio are more home appliance oriented. Denon, Marantz, Onkyo, Pioneer, Sony, and Yamaha are aimed more at sound and picture quality. Sound and picture quality are more important to me than ease of use, consumer friendliness, and functionality.
