    Well, if we're talking about what's out now it's got to be Sharp's 45" lcd with 1920 by 1080. If only I could afford/justify spending £5,000, (rrp £6,500), on a tv when I only bought my current one last summer. Though it isn't particularly good with SD sources, it is the best on the market for hi-def 1080i, (so the reviews say), and is currently the only tv in the Uk where no scaling is required for 1080i material. Not sure if it can display 1080p at 50/60hz though. If it could then it should be perfect for PS3 where all games will output 1080p. Then obviously in 2006 you'll have Sky's 1080i service and I would assume 1080p from both HD-DVD and Blu-Ray discs. Though perhaps 1080p will only be used for movies encoded at 24fps!? with tv shows being 1080i 50/60hz. Who knows!?

    There are a number of 1080p sets out this year/2006. LG has a 71" Plasma, JVC a 46" lcd. Sony has it's 46" LED and 50-70" SXRD rear pro. Samsung have a 70" or so 1080p Plasma etc. There's should also be screens based on SED tecnhology that are 1080p out this year/next. Can't remember who's behind that. Toshiba and Cannon I think. I'm sure there are others. Personally I'm interested to see what all the fuss regarding the Sony Qualia 006 70" Rear pro using SXRD, (a LCOS variant).
