Hi, I'm in similar situation.
26" seems to be the lowest...
What is the Samsung model?
I'm guessing the Sony is the KDL-V26XBR1.
This was discussed before by some other folks futher down the threads.
However, here is the quote:
"Here's what I narrowed it down to:
Sharp LC-26D4U - Last year's model but supposedly last small model made by Sharp. This year small models appear to have some quality control issues
Sony KDL-V26XBR1 - Received excellent reviews but rather pricy. It's a last year model that had been replaced by XBR2. So, my guess it soon won't be available anymore (just like the above Sharp)
Toshiba 27HL95 - Was not able to find much on it. So, getting it is a gamble"
I'm personally researching this topic as well and want to learn more about the Toshiba. Actually, it's 27HLV95 that I'm interested. Because HLV has built-in DVD as well, and I don't want cable box nor seperate DVD player.
