    New Crutchfield catalog has 50 ($K4) and 60 inch Grand Vega SXRD 1080P for $5K.

    The Qualia 70 inch is $13,000. What did they leave out of the new models?

    Funny, I do a search for Vega but all I see are Wegas. [​IMG]

    If Sony's tech turns out to be everything they said it would, than this set may have me selling my pj and going back to a puny 60" ;> That's the best price for 1080p I've seen, not to mention this set is loaded with everything you can think of.

    BEWARE THE SXRDs CAN _DISPLAY_ 1080P BUT THEY CANNOT TAKE 1080P over HDMI! So even if you have a device capable of TRUE 1080P output (say, Playstation 3!) this TV will only be capable of receiving 1080i or 720p and SCALING them to 1080p. EVERYTHING gets scaled. So there is no 100% pixel perfect 1080P.

    The new Mitsubishi's display 1080P (yeah, yeah, I know about the 'pixel sharing') and are $4700 for a 62" I like them.

    I think they can accept true 1080P...but only thru Firewire (may be able to do it thru HDMI, not sure)

    From my understand the new HP RPTV will accept a 1080p signal over HDMI and they look good too.
