    I am looking for the best TV under $4500 (60" or bigger). I want true 1080p.

    I am looking at the Mits WD62627 $4,200, and the Toshiba 62HM195 $2,874. It the Mits worth the extra dough? Should I check out something else?

    I would like to buy from onecall if possible.

    I don't believe the Toshiba is 1080P.

    That is a good price on that Tosh... I'd go for it.

    Like $3700 is the cheapest I have seen it for.

    The Tosh is 1080p, and I am leaning that way. However, the JVC HDILA 1080p sets are just coming out. Is HDILA noticeably better than DLP?

    Hard to say with so many different DLP chips / wheel speeds about.

    These are all pretty new, so no many real world comparisons around to base real opinions on.


    I have not made it out yet to view any in person, I need to do that, more and more people are asking me about these new 1080p displays.

    Sony KDS-R60XBR1!
    This SXRD 1080P display is just a notch down from the $13,000, 70 inch Sony Qualia. It is hard for me to explain, but SXRD produces a more dense image. There is less space between picture elements.

    OneCall has the XBR1 on special for $4,700 delivered through tonight.

    If you miss that sale, Crutchfield has it for $4,999 with 3 year extended warranty and free ship.
