Sharp AQUOS LC-42PD7X

 

The Sharp LC42PD7X is the best 42inch LCD panel on the market. It isn't perfect, but its incredible image quality and reasonable price point outweigh any minor shortcomings.

Great picture, great design, very good sound, and most of all, very easy to set up (the thing is actually intuitive!).

Great screen and perfect for HTPC because it does proper 1:1 pixel mapping . Is a bit picky with source but looks stunning with well recorded material .

Lots of inputs . Easy to set up with optical out for passed through digital sound to the amplifier

Black levels don't compare to a plasma but above average for an LCD

Sharp states that the DVI input is DVI-I, which would support analog PC input (what comes out of an RGB D-SUB). All you would need is a DVI-I cable (one with ALL the pins connected, not just the digital). But if the DVI input is treated as PC input...
