I'm starting to look for a new TV. I started out looking for a HD RPTV but for the money I'm going to spend (~$1400) I am worried I am going to get an inferior set that won't last as long and will require constant tweaking. I then started looking at direct view HD tvs and was wondering if I should get one of those for the same money (32 inch). The whole burn-in issue bothers me with the RP because I don't like to watch stretched images, like football, I know some of these guys are fat but when you stretch it they take up half the screen!! Anyway, I'm just looking for some insight from anybody who has had this dilemna and decided either way. BTW, the RPTV was a Panasonic PT47WX49S and the direct view was a Toshiba 32HF72. I will be most likely be watching DVDs and TV equally with some PS2 thown in everyonce in a while. Thanks in advance.
