Good question. Samsung tends to be a more popular brand due to image quality, however Sharp still delivers an excellent picture. Because overall quality is close I would look at other aspects. Before I go into specifics my nutshell recommendation is to go with the Sharp because it is smaller and probably cheaper. If you can, look at the units in person to see which live picture suits your personal taste. If you are buying online I would consider some other angles such as: 1. Price: If one is at least $100-200 less expensive then it may be smart to save that money and put it in savings or in a mutual fund - great deals right now in the stock market! 2. Size: Believe it or not, a smaller screen size is often better than a larger one. Consider that even though Xbox 360, Blu-ray, and HDTV broadcasts are in a super high resolution, many of these HD signals, particularly those broadcast on satellite (DISH and DirecTV), cable (Comcast, Time Waner, etc.), and free over-the-air television, are highly compressed. This means that "artifacts" - the visible blocks and smudges around edges of objects or during fast movement - are still visible. When your screen size goes up, so does the visibility of these artifacts. High-Def can actually look poorer than expected. To see this in person just run over to your local electronics store and watch a 50" or higher TV. 3. Size (continued): Only go big if you are buying for an extremely large room or a restaurant like a sports bar. This is where most viewing will take place 15 feet or more away from the screen. However if you have a modest living room with a couch somewhere around 7-10 feet away I would try to stay between 37" and 46" for optimal quality (or in your case the 52" is preferable). 4. Ports: Make sure there are at least 3 HDMI inputs on the TV you choose. If there is an HDMI port in front or on the side even better - this is where you will plug in newer camcorders. However, it would also be nice to have 1 or 2 component video ports (round red/green/blue plugs) in back as some high definition game consoles (Wii, older Xbox 360s) and older DVD players only have component and no HDMI. 5. CNET Review: Go to CNET.com or a similar review place and plug in your model number to see if there is an in-depth review on the unit. You may even see a simple score like "7 out of 10 stars". Either way you go you will love your new TV. I am jealous - I am still on a 37" Toshiba and a 32" Samsung. I honestly believe either the 52" Sharp or the 55" Samsung is a winner. Good luck to you.

If you are getting a TV smaller than 50" 720p should be fine, although my over the air HD channels and DishHD are in 1080i. If you go above 50" 1080 is really needed to get a crisp picture. I had a 50" 720p and now a Sony 60" 1080p and I love my sony. But I also have blu ray movies and regular dvd's and there isn't a HUGE difference. But HD channels versus SD are a HUGE difference on a HD set. Things to consider How many different devices you are or will be hooking up to the TV. Make sure the model you get will handle these devices (HDMI), (Component), (Composite) Etc as needed. Warranty, these new models can and will fail regardless of brand. I would check on cost of extended warranty from experience. Stores like Wal-mart offer it at a fraction of price over Stores like Best Buy etc... Also, do not expect these new TV 's to last as long as the old CRT models and if they fail, the repair cost can be as much as a new TV. 1080p is the top of the line and should be for many years since it is the same as 35mm film that movies are filmed with. HOWEVER, the higher quality will not be as noticeable on screens smaller than 50" versus 60+" In short, these new TV's have a very short shelf life (9-12 months) and in alot of cases the parts are not reused in the new model versions, so the parts can be hard to find and very expensive unlike the old CRT models. I will say SOny has great Customer support unlike other brands, but all have their lemons. Just buy the one you feel most needed, but if you do not have any HD source, then there really isn't a reason to buy one if you get the converter for your old one.

Actually, your nvidia 6600 does matter because it should provide a DVI port for video output. To obtain the best picture quality, you should use the DVI output by using either a standard DVI cable if your TV has a DVI port. Otherwise, you can get a DVI-to-HDMI cable that will connect the DVI port of your computer to an HDMI port of your TV. Using a VGA or s-video cable will degrade the picture quality. BUY YOUR CABLE FROM EBAY, AMAZON, etc! Otherwise, you'll get ripped off buying it at a retail store.
