I have been using a Sony Wega 27" since my sophmore year in college. I love the thing to death because it took me forever to save for it. And I felt like I had finally earned the damn thing. Well know 27' just is not cutting it. My sound system rocks but my TV just can't keep up! So I am interested in making a purchase this summer. I have been trying to research as many options as possible. For me I will not be able to have any RPTV as I have a preexisting TV bench. I am also not satisfied with any of the plasma screenes I have seen. I was thinking of going with a 34" Tube TV from Toshiba or Sony(a 16x9 one) but they seem like alot for the screen size. So I have been really interested in DLP. For one I find the slim size and weight to be very appealing. I also enjoy their picture quality. I have just heard some bad things about them when going through the forums. I have heard they need lots of repairs and have other issues. If I do make the purchase it will probably be through Crutchfield(the financing program being a draw). And I am quite interested in the 46" Samsung and Toshibas they offer. Which brand would you go with here? Also what should I know about DLP? Is it reliable? Also are prices expected to decrease on these units? My limit is strictly $2500(wo warranty) so would there be any other suggestions some of you would make? What should I look for when researchign this purchase? Once again I don't plan on making the purchase until the Summer. So I am trying to do as much research as possible. Any input or directions to some great resources would be greatly appreciated. I am in no hurry to run out and get something now. So I want to make sure that I am going to be buying something that lasts for awhile. I don't make a ton of cash(teacher) so I need to make sure that I am purchasing a quality and reliable product. And when it comes to displays....I have no idea what I'm doing as I have spent the past few years focusing on the audio aspects of my Home Theater. Thank you again for any input you might have.
