I'm just about ready to pick up my first semi large screen rptv. I've seen this Hitachi in action and love the picture, have compared it to some other models, read mostly stellar reviews and am almost sold on this model. Before I make the purchase though I was hoping to get some opinions from anyone who may have this model, or a comparable model like a Toshiba which I haven't been able to check out first hand. Size is about as large as we can go given the room dimensions, it will be used for about 60% regular tv viewing (mostly sports and few prime time shows) and 40% DVD. Any thoughts?
