Try the Toshiba 32WL66 $2000, Panasonic TX32LX60 $1900 or the Sony KLVV32A10 $2600

There is a good review of the Samsung, Toshiba 32WL66 and Sony S32 model on the homecinemachoice website.
The Sony wins out with Samsung close second (same panels,same factory) and the Toshiba comes highly recommended. I just bought the glossy black Samsung from Harvey Norman for $2500. Really pleased with it but don't have an XBOX 360 to really take full advantage of HD capabilities...Be careful buying the Sonys, apparently only the new 2006 Bravia LCDs are the ones to get - last years models still being sold around the place

The new KLV32/40/46V200 V Series from Sony are horrible compared to the original KLVV26/32/40A10

However the new S200 S Series are very nice and better than the older model and really for the money are better than the V Series now

But seriously why would you buy an LCD above 37" over a decent plasma?
