    Did you try playing with the settings to see for sure which one has a better pq? As much as I tried to wean away from Sony with a 32 in Sammy but IMO it didn't have the pq I wanted. It lacked the sharpness that Sony had, so.........back to Sony for me. That's just me, now!

    If there is a restriction on the budget check out the Vizio also.

    Between the two sets I would go with the Samsung tho.
    If you're looking to buy a 40 plus incher the model 850 should be a good buy. That's the set that impresses me the most. I haven't seen the 950 yet.

    IMHO Samsung, Sony, Sharp in no particular order.

    I own a Sony XBR and I am very happy with it. For Bluray movies an d gaming (Wii)

    Samsung is generally considered the best LCD manufacturer (atleast since 2008 when it dominated the market with its A550 and A650 lines).

    I would say in the following order: Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Sharp

    Samsung LCDs are excellent except most of their sets have that pesky "Touch of Color" trim.

    Sony has good quality LCDs but like everything else Sony they're overpriced.

    Toshiba is actually my favorite, the higher end Toshiba's use Samsung LCD panels so they're on par with the equivalent Samsung models.

    Sharp is good, but they got a bad rep due to serious banding issues on their LCDs in 2007-2008.

    After a lot of research, I decided the best hdtv is the Toshiba 52XV545U (it uses a Samsung LCD Panel) and it looks brilliant, I couldn't be happier.
