I've been looking into getting a 16:9 TV for the same reason why a lot of people like pan & scan, so that the movie will fill up my screen. After reading some other threads though, I get the feeling that this too is J6P logic. So why would you get a 16:9 TV if not to fill up the screen with pretty DVD pictures? Is it a better idea to go with a slightly larger 4:3 TV that will give you the same widescreen real estate and much more 4:3 real estate for the same price as the 16:9 sets (i.e. a 50" standard set gives you the same amount of widescreen area and 43% more 4:3 area than a 46" widescreen set for the same price)?
