Re: Some advice...
I bought Samsung 4042HX HD LCD.
My primary concern (for now) was the standard def performance of "whatever" I bought because I don't have many HD choices right now.
The verdict is in.
This LCD is absolutely stunning using an SD source (my satellite box) and component video.
I admit that the smaller 40" screen size helps, but I was NOT expecting the picture quality using standard cable or satellite.the HD channels I do get are terrific of course.
I have a few buddies who have 42" plasma's and the PQ is no where near what this LCD puts out using SD.
I'm pretty darn happy with it!
