Ratings: Samsung LTP468W LCD HDTV

Build Quality: 93
Extra points for the tidy rear panel, which makes the set ideal for open tabletop mounting

Value: 92
A lot of screen for the money, clearly besting the largest plasmas in picture area per $

Features: 89
Lots of inputs, with both digital video types and a pair of component inputs; pop-out auxiliary inputs for game boxes, camcorders, etc.

Performance: 88
While not up to plasma's picture quality level, it's closer than other LCD sets and looks better after ISF calibration

Ergonomics: 90
Backlit remote has color-coded keys, picture modes for various viewing conditions
The menu system is easy to navigate

Overall Rating: 90
With 1080p display capability, which others in the flat-panel HD category will eventually offer, the LTP468W gives you a big, bright HD picture today that can only improve once 1080p broadcasts become available.
