Not looking for anything too big, as I'm in an apartment. Probably in the 47-53" range. I'm going to be watching DVD and digital cable. There's no HDTV in Calgary right now so that's not an option. I do have an XBOX now as well. I don't have the greatest budget either. This makes the Panasonics attractive to me, but many posts I read seem to say Panasonic is good bang for buck but not included in the top few brands. What are the forum's thoughts on the Panasonics? Is it worth it to jump up to a Sony or a Toshiba? I can get the Panasonic 47 for $2800 Canadian, and the Panasonic 53" for $3500 Canadian. What would the Sonys and Toshibas and Hitachis give me that the Panny wont? Many thanks.
