The other day, I wasted a couple of hours at "The Good Guys" looking for a widescreen with satisfactory 4:3 stretch. As experinced before at the dealers, they immediately were pushing me into the top of the line Mitsubishi (with the IMHO cheezy looking polished black finish). Do all the dealers push Mitsubishi because they have the highest markup? At any rate, after 2 hours of their sales pitch (including the statement that their service plan included ISF calibrations, yeah right!) I finally got them to put a video tape I had brought with me of the last Winston Cup race (one of my passions). Well, in the full stretch mode the cars looked like cartoon go-karts going around the track. In the other stretch modes, the cars look a little better, but the race position banner across the top of the screen was hidden. Thus, I concluded the Mitsubishi stretch modes were unacceptable and wanted to check out some other brands. At this point the salesman got a little huffy and said they would all look the same! I can't accept this, particularly in light of the fact that I have seen many posts claiming Mitsubishi has some of the worst stretch modes out there. So I have two questions. One, which brands of widescreen RPTVs have a decent stretch mode that I might be able to live with? Two, does any one have a good suggestion for a dealer in the San Diego area that would be willing to work with me and let me preview a varity of TVs using my video tape?
