So I've been researching through the various brands of HDTV's over the past couple of months and got a general feel for what I was liking. While I was originally leaning towards the Toshiba HDX series, I ended up straying away due to the upconversion issue. My choice thus far is the pioneer SD533HD5. This is probably going to get a wide array of answers, but I just wanted to see if there were any TV's out there that I was missing that fulfilled the qualifications I was looking for: - No upconversion of a 480 signal - Great Stretch modes - Great Line Doubler/Image quality on standard feed - Great HD image quality. - Reliable - Available in 50-53" - Under $3K Bonus Requirements I had that weren't required but nonetheless nice - Great image out of the box *or* after tweaking with AVIA (can't afford an ISF for a while) - DVI input (the pioneer I realize doesn't have this) - Able to take 720 signal, even if it upconverts (I realize pioneer doesn't take this either) I ruled out Hitachi's cause of their stretch mode. I didn't like it much. Plus I'm not too keen on the upconversion even if it is better than Toshiba's (this is debatable). I never really researched panasonics, sony's, samsung's, or mitsubishi's. The reason I leaned away from those sets is because I never really heard an abundance of people boasting these sets in regards to the requirements I was looking for. However, I did hear a lot of good things about the SD533HD5 in those categories. So now I'm just curious if there are any sets I'm "missing out" on or overlooking that fulfill a lot of the stuff I'm looking for. Add your 2 cents Thanks!
