I'm looking for a large projection HDTV. It seems that this year the prices have dropped radically and they have better features, such as PIP and DVI inputs.

I'm considering the Philips 60PP9352 ($2,199 US at J&R Music World, NY) or the Sony 65WV600 ($2,699 at J&R) or the Sony 57WV700 ($2,799). I set a mental limit of $3,000 on this purchase.

These are the issues/questions:
-Which is better, the Philips or the Sony?
-If the answer is Sony, is the 700 so much better that it is worth sacrificing the 65" size and getting the 57"? (The age-old 'does size matter?' question.)

All of these sets require a separate HDTV tuner to get HDTV. Does a HDTV Satellite receiver count as a HDTV tuner or is additional equipment between the receiver and the TV needed?

From what I have read it seems Philips has a better picture than the Sony. What I would do is go look at the tvs at a local store so you can see which is better.
