I have a 32 inch direct view (about 10 years old) that looks good, but is not HD, and I'd like something bigger. I'm entertaining the idea of a Sammy DLP at around 4k. The thing is, that would be the most expensive anything I've ever bought other than a house or car. I'm not certain my wife will go for it, but if we pull the trigger, it better be our tv for a LONG time. I dread that I'll drop big bucks on a display device and end up being unhappy with it in less than 5 years(because something better and cheaper comes out). Should I consider something else like a cheaper RPTV? A direct view HDTV? My wife bought our first DVD player for $300+ bucks as a Christmas present for me in '98 and she occasionally mentions how much cheaper they are now. WHAT TO DO?
