Opinion needed LG or Sony or Samsung LCD

I am looking at the following 3 LCD televisions, and wanted to know if anyone has any opinions on the issue.

Samsung 46" LN46D630
Sony 46" KDLEX500
LG 47" 47LK520

all three are 1080p with 120hz, and all around same price

thanks in advance

I have always had good reliabilty with Sony TVs. I currently own 2 Sony TV's, one is a 15 year old school CRT with out any problems. The other is a 4 year old LCD with out any problems.

I just purchased the LG 47" 47LK520 about a month ago, great quality picture, the sound quality is very good. Big thumbs up for the LG from me.

I bought the LG 47LK520 four days ago and so far so good. I read reviews on the internet before purchasing the tv and the reviews were very positive. I’m not disappointed at all with the tv. Great picture quality and easy to setup and use. Plugged in the PS3 using HDMI cable and watched Avatar in Bluray….WOW!

The sound is not great but can be fixed with a home theater system.
One thing I noticed when I turned the tv on for the first time, was that the whites were kinda grey. This is due to the Energy Saving feature. I turned it off and now the image is perfect.

I also own an older Sony (7-8 years old) and it’s still working like a champ. The sound on this thing is amazing and the picture quality is also great.

Good luck!
