What do you want the TV for?

Gaming, movies, word processing. A combination of all?

I recommend since one of them is available at Wally World, bring a Laptop with HDMI connection and a cable to the local world and test it first.

I always test with word pad using courier font in size 8 to check for sharpness. In terms of shadowing and refresh if its a true 120Hz HDTV you wont really notice this unless playing a game such as Deus EX or Half Life2. Games that has a focus on darkness. The shadowing isn't really all that bad imo.

What you'll be losing with a screen that large is sharpness. i personally found that beyond 32" on a TV the icons start becoming large and uncomfortable.

But the best case is to test the tv out with a laptop at the store.

my recommendation is Samsung or Sony. Samsung has provided me the best combination of sharpness and contrast. Sony give me crisp picture and very good refresh rates.

I recommend avoiding LG and Toshiba. Nothing wrong if you want a TV for movies and gaming on console, however for a pc monitor those are terrible for word processing and refresh rates.
