Best Bang for buck LCD tv.

Hey guys I know we have like a bajillion threads on tVs about OMG WHICH SHOULD I BUY WHICH IS better, but this thread is a little different because its all about Best mileages on your dollar.

I got a considerable amount of tax dollars back from the governemnt, and now I need to be a consumer and spend said money to jump start the economy.

I want a nice big screen flat pannel for my room so that i can watch porn in HD. I really want a 1080i/p tv, I want native resolution of 1920 by 1080. I know this is asking alot for something cheap, but I know they exist the question is which store, and which brand comes out on top?

So here is what Im looking for:
Something between 32 inch and 42 inch. But I would rather stay on the 37+inch (this might be hard to do with the price point im looking for).
HD resolution so i can watch all my X264 movies with a hardon. I really want to go with 1080, but ill go with 720 if nothing can be found that is a little bit more or a little bit smaller..
Something SUB 1000$. Infact something between 600 and 800 would be ideal. (before taxes).
Brand I dont care about so long as the quality is half decent.

If you got any brands that come to mind that be great.

if you can wait for a sale you will be able to find a 37" Sharp Aquos or Samsung LCD with 1080p around the price you are looking for.

Nowadays most flat screens are reasonably priced, just go and look around, you'll see for yourself.
I have a Samsung, it's great, but Sharp Aquos are indeed known for being some of the best, if not the best. My friend's boyfriend bought one recently and I was truly blown away by the quality. Very, very nice to say the least.

LG Scarlet series. You can pick up a 1080p brand new at a liquidation store for 900 for 42 inches, and often you don't pay tax
