I've been looking into the 36" Flat Screen HDTV capable TV's right now to upgrade from my 27". I'm not interested in widescreen but would like a picture big enought to handle the black bars with 16:9 compression. I've looked at the Panasonics, Hitachi's, and Sonys. I hear good and bad things about all of these sets. I have digital cable and spend about 85% of my time watching cable, 15% DVD. It doesn't sound like the flat screen HDTV Tube market right now is the best route to go? Is this the case?
