Best Value LCD - Perhaps Olevia - especially the HQV model.
Best LCD as a HT panel - that so far has no major flaws and terrific blacks? Samsung "T" Series.
Numerous reports of Banding and/or Clouds on the Sharp/Sony LCD's and in fact dedicated Loooong threads to those issues on both Sharp D62/92 and Sony XBR's (Clouds).
Best panel unreported? Sony 70" I would guess but who has $33K? No owners thread but top of the heap for Lotto winners or Goldman Sachs Mgrs.
JVC future are spec's driven at this point and the history of specs alone have not been good at all - let's remember whose providing the glass which I believe is LG Philips as I don't think JVC does it's own mother glass and so can we expect dramatic improvements with others have done with that glass and remember the history of JVC is to be months late on debuting from their scheduled panels - in 2.5 years I cannot recall anytime they've met their planned dates. One can hope they match the spec's though.
Westinghouse? Value Yes but I don't know anyone that put it at the top of the list but those that had the limited budget to have anything better - I've never seen one on display that said "Buy Me" but again I'm comparing it to a 57" and 45" Sharp's with no flaws and size with PQ blows away the Westinghouse at a price premium of course. Not intended to be arrogant just a fact that budget limits drive Westinghouse sales and I don't have a Westinghouse budget and if I did I'd be matching it up with the Olevia.
