I also got an LG for the bedroom when I had origially planned to get a different model and actually very impressed with it.

My main tv is 63" Samsung - love it.

I bought a Samsung 55" led 3d smart tv from richer sounds last week for 1200. Glad I did as its amazing.

Takes a bit of setting up, but blu ray and hi def sky looks amazing on it.

It's got built in wifi etc.

I got given a Samsun 40" D5520 which replaces my 32" LCD Panasonic and I'm a bit disappointed. Even after some basic calibration (no full colour adjustment or 10-point WB available) the picture is sometimes a little foggy, and some images seem to have purple fringing at times but I read this is very common with LED type TVs. Obviously having a bigger telly shows all this up so much more. I need to do some more checking but I was watching a film on BBC HD and it had some ghosting in some scenes, I pulled out my DVD copy and the same ghosting appears so I'm not sure if it is my TV or an issue with the actual film (will need to check on another tv I guess).

I do find that you get the best picture with all the software options turned off - but to appease the wife I have turned on noise reduction on sky HDMI as she was complaining about the SD picture.

I don't have a blu-ray player so can't comment on that quality.

2 of the best TV's I have are the following:

Back in 2005 I bought still working till today no issues = PIONEER PLASMA ELITE PRO 1120 50" (main living room) Still looks better than any other recent models. Check this out, price back then on website $12,000 I did not pay that much of course...

2012= Samsung UN46D8000 (bedroom) along with soundbar D551, best combo. Stunning image, sound and looks.
