I have a Westinghouse LVM37-W3 in my living room. Since I live in a small apartment it is a good size in that room.

In my bedroom I have a Westinghouse LTV27-W7 and I am using a Dell 2407 on my PC.

It's a great TV.

The one gripe I do have is that the JVC only does 640x480 and 1024x768 over the VGA connection, and only does 1080i over component. Because of that I can't set the XBOX 360 to 1080P. I believe the Sony will do 1080P over the VGA connection so that's a definite plus for the Sony. Fortunately the JVC has a great internal scaler, so I'm not really missing much in that department. Additionally, the Sony has a wider range of user controls to adjust the picture. You can manage the same type of fine-grained control by going into the service menu of the JVC, but it would have been nice if they'd have put some of those, like geometry control, in the user menu instead.

If you can get the Sony for the same price as the JVC, go for the Sony. But I don't think you can go wrong with either set. Both are fine pieces of equipment.

Here's my updated system configuration with my new 46" Sony Bravia LCD Television - 1080p Model: KDL46V25L1 I returned the Vizio 46" HD LCD Model: GV46L because of poor quality issues and because it wasn't a true HD television due to the fact that it can only produce 1366 X 768
I wanted a true 1080p television. The Sony Bravia LCD does 1920 x 1080p vs 1366 X 768 720p, 1080i

I'm old school. I've got a 65" Mitsubishi RPTV. Bought it on sale right after the 1st DLP sets were released. Mine only has component ins, no DVI or HDMI.

That's ok though. It was an awesome price at the time ($2000 in late 2003 I think) and is still running great.

I think it is not the best HDTV (1080i) out there but makes me happy watching DVDs and playing games!
That's a nice setup, especially considering how much more expensive electronics are in Brasil. When I was in Campinas for work back in June/July, I was amazed at how expensive the electronics were, especially when you consider that they were at least a revision or 2 behind.

For example, a 1GB SD Card was ~$225 (about 500 reais at the time, I think). That's just crazy talk!

I can't wait to run my new 16' FT Belkin Silver Series HDMI to Dual Link DVI from the Sony to my EVGA 7950 GX2 which is Quad SLI never the less.

CRT's are great HDTV's bro.

As far as absolute PQ, my 36" Sony 1080i is better than my 70" Sony 1080p.

I said that because all the time I see peoples using their huge HDTV Flat Panels to browse the web, but I'm unable to use like this.
I can play games and watch movies but when I try the desktop, the text becomes so small that is impossible to be read.
Only OSD text with the oXine media player can be read.

Can some one browse the web at 720p or 1080i?

Just a FYI to dispel any myths, 720p *is* a true HD television.

720p = true hd
1080i = true hd
1080p = true hd

Don't listen to Sony bull****.

Yes. It isn't the resolution that's making your text too small to read, it's the screen size.
