After all the long searching and whatnot, debate between direct view and rear projectors, price concerns, and everything else that can possibly fall in between said categories, I think I have finally decided on which TV set to get: Panasonic CT-30WX52 Right now the price is pretty steep at $1799. I'm hoping that by the time I purchase a new tv (around april 2003) it will be dropped in price. Do you think that this will happen? Because I don't see sense in spending 800 more dollars on this 30" over the Samsung 30" for only $999. And one last question. Does this TV upconvert 720p signals to 1080i? I'm not talking about for watching television because I know tuners and receivers usually do that, but if lets say a video game can be displayed in 720p, would I be able to upgrade it to 1080i internally or would I have to just play the game in 480p? THANKS!
