    First determine what size of tv you'll need/want. Most people, when asked, wish they'd bought a bigger tv.

    Secondly, you have a plasma competing with an lcd. They're both good, but each is geared a little bit towards a certain type of viewer.

    That being said, I have a similar Samsung (the 40 inch, 1080p 550 version, ln40a550) and I'm very happy with it. The 450 is 720p, but otherwise similar. It does a very good job with SD and has excellent black levels.
