Well, I'm beginning to lean heavily towards the smaller RPTVs in my pre-purchase research. Its clearly the way to go for a great 16:9 DVD experience, and I'll find a way to keep the videogaming on it to relatively safe frequency and duration. Of course I realized I can't just stick with the one 42" set that caught my eye, I should compare similar models. So here's what its down to. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Toshiba 42h83 - 42", has DVI. Keep hearing about lines appearing from the 540p upconversion and that this model may not let you switch to 1080i to eliminate this problem? Would it be safer to get a set that does 480p natively? Without this potential problem, I'd probably have no trouble picking this set. Great stretch mode and has looked as good as it could despite various in-store problems. Panasonic PT-47WX53 - 47", has DVI. Keep hearing this one mentioned, seems to be pretty popular. Haven't see it in person yet. Matches up in features to the 42h83, though I've heard the Tosh has a better (the best maybe) stretch mode. The size doesn't make a huge difference to me as long as I can get the right price. Mitsubishi WT-A42 - 42", no DVI (though I've heard a new model may be on the way with DVI?). I ruled this out because of lack of DVI but if a similar model w/DVI came out I'd consider it. Saw it side by side with the Toshiba, and the Mitsu definitely looked better, but the toshiba had some serious convergence issues at that store. I would have to buy the stand for this one, though at Flanners they were offering it w/the stand for $1499. However, I may need to try to get a good deal at Best Buy because with my current income, I'm probably going to need some kind of no interest financing like BB has been offering. So the main thing I'm looking for is known issues like the 540p upconversion problem. Things I can't necessarily tell by looking at them at a store. The Toshiba and Panny are easily in my price range, and I imagine the Mitsu could be if I either stretch my price range or wait for a good deal. Ideally I'd like to spend $1300 or less (after everything is factored in, tax/delivery), but with financing and if one model was clearly the best, I might stretch it to $1500. Looking forward to your insights.
