Thanks, guys. I was looking at a Samsung on Amazon and found a review that 
really panned Samsung because the panel failed and they had a hard time 
getting it replaced under warranty. The LG I was looking at *claimed* to be 
120 Hz, but several reviewers said the manual said it was really 60Hz. :(

I've done a little bit of research and what I *think* I want is 120 Hz, LED 
continuous back-lighting (not edge backlight.) Other than that, I really don't 
know what more I want. I agree that LG has a good name, generally, but after 
reading that review, I'm suspicious that they may be pulling a bait & switch 
by doing some sort of gimmicky emulated 120 Hz instead of true 120 Hz.
