Ok. I guess its time to retire my old 27" flat Sony and go towards something that I really want. My budge as of right now is around $2k or so. I've really been looking at RPTV's since alot of them are so affordable at the moment. The first thing that crossed my mind was the Panasonic 53wx53 or the 47" version. However I've read about people having quality issues, returning sets, ect. ect. However I've also read they are a HUGE bang for the buck and when calibrated properly are very very nice. I watch tons of movies, play alot of games (XBOX, PS2, Gamecube, SNES, NES) and watch alot of cable programming as well, so a nice stretch mode would be much appreciated. I'm not just limited to RPTV's either, if I could afford something maybe a little bit more in a different format, then I might go up in budget. The thing with the panny is I read something about it not having HDVI or something like that? I think the new model does however: http://ww1.onecall.com/PID_22656.htm I'm not just limited to the panny either, I'm looking at all models in my price range. Toshiba is another consideration as well as sony. Any comments? I'm worried about burn in quite a bit, however I imagine once I get it properly set up with the contrast and levels and such that won't be a problem.
