After extensively searching through the LCD and DLP offerings out there (my thread), my latest choice added up to $4800 after tax, the stand, and the warentee. I'm starting to think I may fall for one of the "sales" at one of my local B&M's (like a $1500 Hitachi RPTV?) while I wait for the LCD situation to settle down a little more. I want to know how to spot a good deal so that I'm not just wooed by anyone's fancy sales pitch. Priorities in finding the right RPTV: 1. Picture Quality - good black levels, great color, minimal risk of burnin 2. Big Screen Size - At least 45". 3. Price - Preferable under $2000. 4. Width - must be thin enough to get into my basement. Most likely most of them will, but it will be close. So what brands should I look out for, or how can I spot a good deal? I've seen some Philips out there some Hitachi's, some Sony's. Will I pretty much be fine if I go for one of those brands?
