With the advent of HD DVD, I was thinking about upgrading my 55" Mits to a bigger set. It seems all the sets these days are either 50" or 60", but I can't see only increasing my screen size by only 5" to a 60".

I did see Mits has one '07 DLP model that is 65" and also has 1080p. Don't know much about the PQ.

Anybody know what other models are out there?

Sorry, Greg. I should have been more clear. What I would like would be a 65" model. A 10" increase in size, and looking at HD movies would really make a big difference in the overall movie watching experience. I am not so sure about going from 55" to 61" or 62", and not sure I can justify the money for that.

I know there are larger sets, around 72-73", but those are a little too big for my situation, and too $$$ for me.

Again, any 65" other than the Mits that are out there now, or coming soon?

I've seen a preproduction unit of the new Mits and thought it looked very good for a DLP. They have a new color wheel that improves color accuracy considerably and rainbows are somewhat less as well.

Last night at BB, they had one of the new Mits there, I think a 50" set. They were demoing the Blu Ray player on it. Looked pretty good at a brief viewing.
