Not saying it's a bad TV, but I have yet to see, what I would consider, a good HD-TV being sold at WM. If you read the specs on any of the TVs they sell (in store,) you will see that even the largest TVs they sell only have a resolution 1366x768, which will display a max resolution of 768P. That's not a resolution that is part of the HD "standard", so most things will display at 720P, unless the TV up-converts them to the non-standard ratio.
If you are looking for a decent TV, get something with FULL resolution of 1920x1080 (1080i or 1080P). They are readily available in stores (other than WM), and are generally comparable in price.
Also be sure to watch the "contrast ratio." A decent TV would have a ratio of 1000:1 (1000 to 1) or higher. The higher the first number, the better. Personally, I wouldn't settle for less than 1500:1, but that's just me.
You will thank yourself for doing this when you finally get into watching TRUE HD content...
