The JVC, Toshiba, and Sony 60" are out of my price range though. I have yet to see that Sharpe model.
It all depends on what you like picture wise. I prefer DLP picture quality. Be aware that almost all new TVs are not calibrated (black and white levels, color and hue) and the pictures you see in the stores are contrasted for brightness to catch your eye. The difference after calibration is amazing! The best place to read what readers think of their TVs is here...
