I want to buy a HD WS RPTV. I have a choice of the Sony's, Hitachi's, The new Panny 53" and the new JVC. I can get them all at cost. I'm leaning towards the Panny because of reviews here. I know it will not look the best out of the box but I can work on that. The panny would cost ~1200. The smaller 51 Sony is a few hundred more, same with Hitachi's. Just wondering if it's worth it to spend a few hundred more to get a 2" smaller screen but it be a Sony or Hitachi. Is the picture quality on the Sony and Hitachi any better? In the "showroom" the Sony looks a little better than the Hitachi, and both look better than the Panny. But from everything I've read the Panny can look just as good. Opinions please!
