    Just bought one this weekend at Ultimate Electronics for $1,899 with 1 1/2 year free financing. Being delivered tomorrow. Was a bit concerned about the lack of DVI inputs, but two scenario's I see are Mits comes out with hardware to convert or I just live with component connections. The red push thing is a little worrisome also.

    I just have a some questions:

    Can anyone tell me if calibration will mitigate the red push to an acceptable level? Also, when is the best time to have calibration done?

    Does anyone know if the WS55411 has an interface/menu to basically tone down the red push?

    Finally, can anyone link a Mits user group/forum where they discuss the HDTV's?

    TIA

    Good Price, probably because new models are coming out In July and August w/dvi inputs and more. Go to the forums section of the Home Theater Spot for manufacturer specific info. There is plenty info in the Mits forum regarding Red Push fix..

    Well, just got the set delivered and I am blown away by the picture. It is very crisp and clear. This being my first HD set, I am surprised with how well it is looking only at my DirecTV non-HD signal.

    Also, I see no apparent red push, so maybe I just can't tell or maybe it is not as bad as people have made it out to be.

    I don't think the '04 models have DVI either, but I could be mistaken. I think the main thing Mits has done for '04 is integrate the HD tuner for all their Gold - Diamond lines. Something I didn't need.

    Watching my new Mits DVD progressive scan player is an absolute treat.

    Thanks for the comments/replies.
