    I'm planning to buy a RPTV around 53-61". If price is not a factor, which one do you recommend? If price/value is important, which one is better?...thanks

    If you could provide a bit more detail of what you are expecting from the set. How much room do you have to work with? Can you fit a 61" set into your space? Do you watch a lot of cable tv? Satelite? How much DVD watching?
    Here are two sets that I would consider:
    Toshiba 53HX71 C$3,549
    Sony 53HS30 C$4,000

    Paul:
    I too have that same question, except that I was looking for something around 65" and 16:9. I do watch a lot of Directv (and Directivo) satellite, while I only watch on the average of 1-2 DVD's a week.
    Any suggestions?

    I've been trying to find a Philips 60PP9601 to check out here in Montreal, but it seems there are none in Canada. Anyone seen any up here?

    If you can fit it, bigger is better (tv wise [​IMG] ). Keep in mind that a 61" RPTV will probably lose some picture quality compared to the 53" from the same brand if its using 7" guns. Some people don't mind, others do, others don't even notice so its a matter of preferences.
