    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.

    The 36" Panasonic Tau. The set I wish I bought over my Wega.
