Next week I'm going to purchase a 16x9 HDTV ready television. My home has a built in media niche so I am limited as to the size of TV is can put in it. The two sets that I am trying to decide between are the Hitachi 43UWX10b (43") and the Mitsubishi WT46809 (46"), both the same price. At first I was sold on the Mitsubishi by name, quality and the extra size, but then i SAW the Hitachi. I've taken a number of people to view these and we all agree the Hitachi looks better. It also has a smoothe wide feature where it only stretches the last two inches of a 4x3 feed. This feature looks much better than the fill and stretch views of the Mitsubshi. I will not be running a HD signal for a year or two and tried to simulate this on the sales floors. The sales people have been pretty terrible and only a few sales people have been able to get signals on the sets. I am now pretty sold on the Hitachi, but I need some feedback from all of you. Have I missed anything or, has anybody else experienced these sets.
