I might wait til next year and get the 37" 1080p Sharp.
It's suppose to have a 6 response time...
I would still recommend an LCD for xbox 360. I had the 26XBR1 and returned it. The blurring was very similar to blurring on the 23" Samsung LCD. The Sony was a great TV, but cost twice as much. So, I decided to get the 23" Samsung.
Before I bought the 23" Samsung LCD, I bought a 26" Samsung HDTV CRT. It didn't have any blurring problems, but it didn't have enough resolution either. Someone told me that it had a resolution of 800x1080. I know that isn't 16x9, but I guess CRT TVs have odd resolutions sometimes. I think the highest resolution CRT TV is one of the Sonys. It has a resolution of 1400x1080.
720p games on the CRT didn't look that sharp.
If you don't mind waiting, that's the best thing to do. LCDs will only get better in time. But, I wouldn't recommend a 1080p display for xbox 360. Upscaled 720p to 1080p won't look as good as 1280x720 on a 720p TV.
