    Well i'm finally going to get this TV tonight and just wanted to make sure:

    Is there any reason not to get the TV? Anything like cable signals look horrible, or anyone have bad experience with one?

    Thanks!

    Looks like a good set to me. I haven't heard one negative comment about it from anyone, other than the fact that you can get more bang for your buck with a rear-projection TV if you want to maximize your screen size.

    The bang for the buck would be my biggest concern. Especially when the 42H81 can be had for about $500Can(or less) more than the 34" Directview model. If you do decide to get the 34", let us know what you think of it.

    I bought one because I have very specific space issues. I had to take time to adjust it, but it is beautiful. I am anxiously awaiting the completion of a tower in my area so that I can tune to OTA broadcasts.

    DVD's are gorgeous using S-Video cables. When I get my new player I expect that the component inputs will be even better.

    Cable is excellent sometimes and mediocre, which is normal.

    I haven't seen a RTP in the same price range that looks as good. It looks much better than the RCA 38" and about the same as the other 34" direct view TV's. I just saw a Loewe (sp?) 38" that is better but cost around $5k.
