Without going into a ton of details, I have decided to go with either a DLP RPTV or POSSIBLY (if it becomes affordable) one of those new Sony Grand WEGA KDSR50XBR1 50" SXRD for my next home theater. My only requirements are that the screen be at LEAST 50" with a preference of 60+, and I want but am not completely sold on the whole 1080p thing. Looking to the future, I guess 1080p is important, but if anyone has any thoughts or convincing points for or against, please enlighten me on them. I will be viewing mostly HD content and DVD (HDDVD when available). I have a budget of $2500 but can go to 3k if it makes a big enough difference. I will need it by January 1st, so take into account either new availabilities or price drops by that time if possible. Thanks ahead of time for all the info, and I will reserve my thoughts until I hear some of your opinions. Also, I was planning on buying it from a reputable ONLINE dealer and possibly purchasing an extended warranty. Please do not factor the extended warranty cost into the final price 2500-3000 and offer your opinions on warranty as well. After I get some feedback here I'll delve into my media PC idea etc etc. Thanks!!!
