I'm sure they're everywhere by now, but I'm wondering what everyone thinks of them? I'm specifically looking at the WS-55311, which is the Gold series 55" HDTV. The picture was really impressive, and it seemed more mellow compared to the Tosh 57hx81 (seemed a little bright to me, but they might have had the brightness up a little). The (progressive scan) picture on Jurassic Park was really impressive, and it's a miracle that I was able to walk out without it......but I had to get some unbiased opinions from someone that won't make any commission I was told that Mitsubishi has one of the longest life expectancies on the market. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Also, the prices on last year's model have gone down due to the new ones already out, so I could essentially get a better model from last year for at or below the same price.......anyone know how well the gold series (2003's) compare to the Platinum series (2002's), or should I even consider anything but the newest (due to features/specs)? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance, Derek.
