Their criteria are 1) fit the entertainment center (means 32 or 36 direct view) 2) must be 4:3 but no real budget (around $2k is OK) My criteria are 1) HDTV ready 2) anamorphic mode (preferrably automatically) 3) 3:2 pulldown I've read and searched and poked and probed the net and these forums and am looking for input on the following sets: Panasonic 32/36HX Sony 32/36XBR450 Toshiba 32/36HF / HFX Hitachi 36UDX Samsung 3295HF Any I'm forgetting? They want something that will last and be able to be used for a good 10 or more years (i.e. relatively future ready). I know for some of these width may be an issue but we'll deal with that when we get there. Thanks!
