Suggestions for a 36 inch TV?

Looking to buy a 34 or 36 inch TV during the holidays.... I've been looking at Sony Wegas but have heard some good feedback about Toshiba TVs as well. I also saw a good looking JVC in Circuit City but forgot to take down the model. Anyway, what I'm looking for should be a flat screen and have V-compression (is that the same as 3:2 pulldown?). Are there any other requirements I must have? (I have never bought a TV this large below). Also, my budget is about $1000 to $1500. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

If you plan on using it for a while, get one that is HD ready.

I have a 36'' RCA DTV. I believe RCA only has 1 36" DTV. This dtv is awsome, crisp picture, lost of features and have not had a single problem with it also you cant go wrong with the RCA name. You can probably pick this set up at Best Buy, and dont forget to haggle with the price!! THEY WILL COME DOWN SOME ON THEIR TV's. Just be persistant! I have a friend who worked at BB and most people dont know on some of theses expensive purchases they will come down considerably if u ask a few times.
