    i know there have been some topics on tv purchase before, but i hope you guys can help cater to my situation here.

    my family suddenly decided they wanted to buy a HDTV without consulting me at all (and with probably not adequate research on their part).
    apparantly they've narrowed it down to two choices

    panasonic TC 37LZ800
    panasonic TX 37LZD85

    now before they make any rash decisions i grabbed the model numbers so i can ask my comrades here.
    i don't know what prices they can apparantly get them for, but i believe they are probably going to buy offline not online. I think our budget is probably under $1500 AUD.

    i should note we don't have an HD-DVD or Bluray player or any current gen consoles to use with it. however i am probably going to purchase a wii in the coming months (all i know is that it's best output is 480p).

    1. are these tvs any good or terrible?
    2. if not, anyone got any recommendations on a better 37inch 1920 x 1080 TV? (i guess it's worth getting 1920 x 1080)
    3. any other related comments?

    thanks to everyone who inputs!

    Without HD input, the picture will look worse compared to a regular TV.

    Those Panasonic's seem good to me, they have MANY (3 1.3 HDMI!) inputs and good contrast ratios...
