The Good Guys has these on sale for ... $999. I think I have done my research: 1) 16:9 squeeze mode for anamorphic DVDs 2) component video inputs (my '99 Panny didn't) 3) upconverts std 480i to 480p 4) has velocity scan modulation that is easily turned off 5) DVI input I think that I know this is a good price, and that Toshiba's are looked on well by HTF-ers. Any known "gotchas" with the Sony? Any places with good prices on the Toshiba equivalent? Thanks!
