46" Sony KDL46S3000
Yes, it's only a 720p TV, but as long as you sit 8.5 feet or more from the TV
, your eyes won't notice any more perceived sharpness on a 1080p TV, even with 1080p sources.
The Sony has a 10-bit panel, unlike most of the competition that has 8-bit panels. These extra two bits quadruple the number of shades of gray providing a smoother picture. In addition, black levels are generally better than all but the most expensive Sony and Samsung LCDs, and Pioneer and Panasonic commercial plasmas. However, the white levels will beat the plasmas and virtually all other LCDs. In addition, the S3000 has a matte screen, which resists glare better than glossy screens of plasma and many LCDs (including the more expensive Samsung 71 series).
The S3000 has two component inputs, recommended for an HD cable or satellite box and other general HD connections. It has two HDMI inputs, which is proper for HD-DVD, BluRay, and upconverting DVD players. In addition, there's an optical audio output to output 5.1 (or, depending on the station, stereo) digital audio from antenna or unencrypted QAM stations using the TV's built-in tuner, all to an AV receiver. That output won't work with any other tuners, though.
By the way, just to let you know, monoprice.com sells great cables, for much less cash than those Monster(ously Hyperexpensive) cables. Here's a 6-ft. HDMI cable for under $5.
