    Folks,

    I'm down to these two. Shading towards the Sharp due to its native resolution. Main use will be DVD's just now, and then the PS3 in Spring. Probably some Sky HD also at some point.

    37 is my optimal size for our TV room... i'm sorely tempted to go for the 42, but i don't want to get greedy - size isn't everything - or so I'm told :D

    Any reasons for or against, or to confuse me more by adding another option ?

    I find it strange that out of all the sets available you have narrowed your choice to a 720 and a 1080 product.

    I have not seen a 1080 set than displays an SD feed as well as the best 720 sets.

    High resolution does not ensure a better picture and currently the opposite is true for some products.

    If you are mainly viewing a 1080 source and intend to sit close enough to see the additional detail then a 1080 set may be a better option for you, otherwise it may be a mistake.

    Wholeheartedly agree with Rogerft on this.

    Well set the set to 720, its bit late in day to buy a 1366x678 panel IMO, we have now got 1080p not only 1080i panels, esp when cost is as low as this.
    99% of n00bs buy a HD Ready TV not knowing it can never show a 1080 pic in true res, they dont get told by shop its only the inputs that gets it the HD Ready cert, look at the total joke of Sammy Slimfit 408 CRT, its a normal SD screen.

    Going by what I have read here the Sharp IMO is the better TV even ignoring the 1080p/1080i 1920x1080 panel, the Tosh had my attention but its being out a while and some peeps here are not happy with it, If you get a Sharp with no banding your set for a good TV, and the 37" are said to not have this issue or rarely.
    The current price on the Sharps makes it a no brainer.

    I've got the Toshiba and it's a superb TV. Excellent with SD and HD and also has 3 HDMI ports!
