Most of the LCD TVs except for the new HDTV-compatible ones are quite crappy. They have very hard, pixelated images. The new high resolution ones are quite a bit better, but comes at a price of coz. Beware tho, most places demo the high resolution ones with a HDTV source which is of a much higher resolution than DVD and your normal TV programs. That makes the screen looks very good. But when you use normal material on them, they *might* not look that good anymore.
