ok guys, need some help. I have finally narrowed down my two 16:9 choices to two very different sets, the Toshiba 42H81 and the RCA F38310. Both can be had for roughly the same price (considering i'd have to get an HDTV receiver for the Tosh and not the RCA). Here are my pros and cons, which have them deadlocked in my decision making : Toshiba 42H81 pros : -better word of mouth, especially compared to older toshibas -larger screen than the 38" RCA -RPTV should make dvd's look more film-like -SVM disabling probably easier on this set -i know what i'm getting model-wise (the rca has older versions floating around, even at high volume chain stores) cons: -bad luck with previous 40" Toshiba Theatrewides -i've always prefered tube picture quality -don't like the viewing angle of RPTV and the the strict room lighting conditions necessary for viewing -the 42H81's "upconversion" of progressive scan 480 signals to full HD line resolution, which supposedly degrades detail on to the RCA F38310...pros: -picture looks beautiful in the showroom, and i'm picky! -built in OTA HDTV decoder (althoguh i'm not going to use the built in DirecTV) -It's a 16:9 large tube, and if i can go tube i'd prefer it -doesn't waste a lot of space with speakers i'm not going to use -will show native 480 cons: -rca has even worse customer support than Tosh (supposedly) -this is a set that in the past has been plagued by problems -slightly smaller set than the Toshiba -i might not be able to disable SVM ok guys, if any of these statements/assumptions are fale, or you have any additional info, i'd REALLY appreciate it, I CANNOT MAKE UP MY MIND!! thans!
