I have that one, for me its been the perfect set so far. Its only 3ms slower than the samsung models you listed, but i havent noticed any blurring.

 

Read up on the AVS forums for more info, heres the owners thread for the model i listed:

Oh and the only possible issue with that set is that it doesnt support 1080p through component, only 1080i. You need HDMI for 1080p. Apparently its like this for many TVs, although this is my first 1080p set so i dunno.

 

EDIT: With your choices though, they're all good to me. Just depends on how much money you have really.

do i need to have signed up for HD TV channels @ Direct TV in order to play GTA IV in HD or is it enough to just have an HD TV?

Lol, To play GTA IV in HD, you will need the HDMI Cables for your console.

If you're going to get anything less than 40 inches or so, there's absolutely no need to spend the extra money for 1080p/i. The human eye can't see the difference between 720 and 1080 at that resolution. I have a 720p Sony Bravia in my bedroom and considering the distance from my general spot for watching it, it's absolutely perfect. If you're getting something for the living room, go bigger, and go 1080i.

They are about 20$-40$. But it doesn't matter about the Price, they are all the same.

Yea you only need the component cables for HD. You wont notice much of a difference with HDMI, unless the TV youre getting only takes 1080i over component.

 

Component is the red, green, and blue cables with the two red/white audio cables.

Get one as big as possible. For some reason HDTVs look small.

 

Even though your old tv was probably alot smaller, and you got by fine.
