I think the panels are produced by only a handful of manufacturers -  
I think I read that there are only two manufacturers of 40" 1920 x  
1080 panels, so the panel in a 900 Goodmans LCD is likely to be the  
same as that in a 2500 Sony / Sharp / delete-as-applicable name- 
brand TV.

Of course there are many other factors which will affect image  
quality, but if you are feeding a 1:1 image over DVI then I would  
expect these can be (mostly?) ignored.
