Yes 1080p is the highest resolution for comercial TVs at the moment.

if you are getting only a 37" screen, you may have a hard time perceiving the difference between 720p and 1080p, especially if you sit at the correct viewing distance.

Ignore the contrast ratio's listed in spec lists, as a manufacturer can measure contrast which ever way it wants, so they are not comparable across brands. The best way is to read a review, and then compare potential purchases in a store to see which you like the look of.

Off the top of my head, good manufacturers are (in a rough order) :

Pioneer
Sony
Panasonic
Samsung

1080p is worth it as nearly all proper HD stuff comes in 1080p really. I would also consider 40" if at all possible as the screens I have seen get far better contrast (the way you can tell how black the screen can go). I have a Samsung 40" A6 series and did plenty of shopping around about 3 months ago.

good luck,
Nick.

Is that good to bad? since Samsung are pretty much the best for LCD and Pioneer and Panasonic for Plasma and Sony used to(if not still) use a lot of Samsung panels

Don't worry too much about contrast ratios as every manufacturer uses different standards to measure them.

There's a lot of personal preference involved but I would argue that Panasonic plasma technology offers the most natural picture quality for standard definition broadcasts and DVD films. I don't really think anyone could argue how good the 360 looks on it either. I'd particularly apply the overly sharp and false representation of images to Samsung and LG panels.

I chose mine after 3 months of looking at different screens and initially hating the idea of the plasma route. My work colleague is buying one shortly and is equally convinced after comparing mine to friends.
