I've ordered a 43HX71 but it's not being delivered until Thursday, so I might still have a chance at switching. I was pretty set on getting a 42H81, but then I saw the 43HX71 and thought it could solve some other problems in my particular setup. Pros for 43HX71: * it's a CinemaSeries display with the supposedly better lenses, etc. etc. * can do the 16:9 squeeze * actually fits on a standard 36" TV stand (which means I could keep my current stand which houses my components and keeps them away from toddler fingers) * our viewing is probably half-and-half broadcast TV and DVDs, so 4:3 would be nice for the broadcast half. Cons: * although it fits on my current stand, it would end up being pretty high above our normal viewing height... * which means I might end up getting the stand that Toshiba makes... * which will only fit 1-2 components, which means I'd probably still have to move some stuff out of the stand and try to secure it from said toddlers... * which, if I'm doing that anyway, maybe I should go ahead and get the 42H81 * Plus, I think it would end up looking more imposing than the 42H81 Things you can hopefully help with: * Is the CinemaSeries from Toshiba that much better? The cost of the two sets is effectively the same... are the additions for the HX series worth it? * How much should I be worrying about burn-in? Is it true that if the contrast is properly set I shouldn't have to worry about it (at least right away)? Any help at this point would be really appreciated. Thanks.
