I'm rapidly coming to the end of my deployment in Iraq (thank God) and I've managed to pay off all the credit cards, bills, etc and save a pretty nice nest egg. Already talked it over with the wife and I'm clear to splurge on a TV for me, we currently have a large set but it's not an HDTV and I'm looking to upgrade.

SO....what I'm in need of is some advice on brands, models, etc. I'm in the market for something preferably 40" or larger, LCD with a great picture. Money isn't a big limiting factor, although I'm thinking if I spend more then 1500 bucks wifey might be just a little upset. :o

Since this is the tech arena, anyone got some suggestions?
