Well after several days of confusion, I finally bought the 51S500 Hitachi with the zero percent interest at Sears. I almost bought the Samsung DLP but I had a hard time justifying the cost. Does anyone know what size the CRT's are on this beast? I heard they were bigger than most. I had a hard time getting an official number. The TV is delivered Wednesday so I still have time for final suggestions. If you see it advertised anywhere at a major B&M let me know as well so I can get it price matched! I hope that I did not waste money on something that is about to be outdated. Now I have to decide what to do about my DirectTV receiver and if I need an HDTV tuner. I will decide that next week. I've heard DirectTV may decide to lease the HD Recievers soon.
