I have been a member here for quite a while. For the most part I sit on the sidelines because I don't have anything useful to say. I've also been looking for a new TV for about 2 years! My price point (2K) and my qualifications (near perfect picture [DLP, Plasma, LCD, I like them all] in the 50"-60" range) are obviously constantly at odds. I was pretty happy to see prices drop gradually over the last year into my range, I was hoping to finally upgrade my 15 year old 27" Trinitron (it's looking pretty bad). Of course several months ago 1080p sets started surfacing and threw me off again. It's got me to wondering though if 1080p is for me? Considering my viewing habits: - I don't plan on going HD DVD/Blu Ray until the units are in the $200 range. - I watch 70% SD TV (not a fan of cable boxes) via Tivo and 70% DVDs'. - I was already gearing up to be pretty disappointed watching SD TV through a 1080i set, the prospects can only get worse with 1080p. Am I way off here? Should I still consider 1080p or will SD be just too horrible on it? If so, is my real decision then to start looking back at 1080i?
