    Okay, I am looking to get a 16:9 HDTV and have pretty much narrowed it down to a few options from what I have seen around here. It will mostly be used for DVDs for the time being (until I get HDTV better available in my area) and I am thinking about getting a Panny RP-91 to use in combination with the TV. I believe I'll try to stick with $1500 or less for the TV and here's what I have found that interests me:

    Philips 30PW8520 from Sam's Club (obviously the cheapest in the group)

    Panasonic PT47WX49, also from Sam's Club

    Samsung HCM4216W

    Samsung HCM422W

    What exactly are the pros/cons of these, I have looked around on here, but haven't been able to come up with a "which of these is better" opinion. Purchase will most likely be made in 2-3 months, after I get some more money from summer work. If there are any other suggestions, please let me know. I'm very open to all opinions.

    I'm also looking at that Philips ($888 at my Sam's) or the Sansung 30" at Costco, for $872, I think the Philips was higher original list, but I don't see a huge difference in them

    anyone have an opinion as to which is better?
