Super sharp resolution and great contrast make the Sharp Aquos LC-37D90U a picture-perfect example of a good choice in the very popular 37” widescreen category.

Though costlier than cheaper brands, the image quality — and full hi-def 1080p support – make it worth the price.

What’s more, the ability to attach HDMI devices means it’ll work with the new hi-def DVD players and the Playstation 3. Those looking for larger, equally future-ready HDTV should check out Pioneer’s PDP-5070HD.

At 50-diagonal inches, it’s big enough to please a packed crowd of armchair quarterbacks on Super Bowl Sunday, yet not so large to drive the price through the roof.
