I know it's been asked but I really don't know where to look at what's current. Between all the top brands (sony, toshiba, samsung, panasonic, etc) what is the best hdtv for computer desktop (office, browsing etc) and gaming? I've heard that previous generations of hdtv's just weren't sharp enough for daily use on the desktop. has that changed?

samsung LED's a good fit for desktop use? Sony?

help, no idea where to start or to investigate

HDTV 1080P will be 1920 x 1080. Regardless of the screen size. Sharpness should not be an issue, unless you sit too close to a very large screen.

For gaming, look at plasma in the larger(>50") sizes. in smaller sizes look for units with the best motion blur cancelling features.
