    In July 2008, my sister and I each purchased the 32 inch Sceptre sold by Costco.

    If you go to the Costco web site, and read the reviewer comments, you will see that there are some real problems with that set.

    In my case, the problems have largely been with the crappy remote, and, just yesterday, the scanned channels list was clobbered and I had to rescan (there were no power outages, and the TV is plugged into a good surge protector).

    I also loooked at the comments for some Vizios, they also seem to have issues.

    So, which are the best brands of 1080P TVs?

    I'm keeping my analog sets as long as I can get away with it. I hate the idea of spending so much for a digital TV and they don't even seem to be so great, as you've noted. If you are looking for the best, you're going to have to spend a lot of money.

    But the reason I'm responding is to say that it is possible that there was a momentary power outage when you were out of the house and it might have been short enough that no other devices were affected but it might just have been enough to lose the preset channels. I have one tuner that cannot tolerate the slightest power interruption.

    I've had a Mitsubishi DLP 1080p TV for just under a year and couldn't be happier. HDTV, Blu-Rays, and PS3/XBox 360 videogames are all stunning.

    Panasonic 37" Plasma

    Can't for the life of me remember the name 'cause Sony and Panasonic can't name products without at least half a dozen randomly assorted letters and numbers.

    Still, their TVs are great and seem to last.

    I'd say Samsung is the best for TVs.
