    I'm considering the Panasonic 51HX41 51" rear projection TV. It's ~$1800 which is a hefty investment for me. At the store they were multiplexing a really poor source signal so I couldn't get a good idea of it's quality. I had them hook up a 480p DVD and I thought it looked great, but it was the first time that I'd seen progressive at all.

    The standard line is "buy whatever looks good to you" but I want to know what you guys think about this model. It seems pretty common, I'll bet most of you've walked past one.

    Out of the box, Pannies can look terrific, with intense contrast and a lot of snap. However, they tend to run way off the grayscale on the high side--Pannies are often a bit blue-ish, in other words. You'll need a professional to help you bring the grayscale close to the 6,500K standard. Once you do that, though, you'll be happy with its picture.
