As I mentioned in another thread, I'm very disappointed in my Sony RPTV due to the severe "ghosting." As I find this intolerable, I'm going to try to swap it for a different brand. So, I need some clarification on some of the stuff I've read, but that hasn't really been explained. Hitachi: The common criticism seems to be "bad stretch modes." Can someone elaborate on this? Are we talking only about those stretch modes for viewing 4:3 stuff stretched out to fill the screen to avoid "burn-in?" If so, I don't care really. I am only interested in whether it can properly play DVD in OAR. (ie. Widescreen stuff can properly displayed and 4:3 stuff can be properly displayed in a 4:3 ratio...) Toshiba: Ok, this one I completely don't get. I'm hearing that there is a slight loss of resolution with Toshiba as compared to other RPTVs. Why? Talk to me like I'm a newbie, because when it comes to this stuff I am. At the same time, if this is true, why does Toshiba seem to be the TV most HTFers prefer? Thanks a bunch!
