    I've been to BB to play with the 40H80 several times and really like it, but they are out of stock.
    1)How's the 42H81?
    2)Besides the addition of reverse 3:2 pulldown, what other features does it have over the 40H80?
    3)Are there any printed reveiws of the 42?
    I've never been a big fan of RPTVs, but the new smaller one's look great to me.

    Well, the difference is: the 42H81 is 16:9. It's a bad ass widescreen beauty that I've been pondering for the past week.
    I'm debating over either this, or the Panasonic PT-47WX49

    I'm sorry for my idiocy!
    I could have sworn I was seeing 71 at the end.

    The 40H80 is last years model. The 42H81 is this years model. Both are 16x9 and the initial reports seem to indicate the new set gives a better picture and is still tweakable.
