    I should be able to pull the trigger on an RPTV purchase sometime in the next few weeks.

    I definitely want either the Mitsubishi 55819 or the 55809.

    I know the 55819 has the Net Command (whose function I don't know), but what other advantages does the 819 have over the 809?

    Thanks in advance!

    It was pointed out to me on another forum that the 519 does not have Net Command. I was also told the main differences were better focusing on the 819, larger speakers, and a little bit nicer cabinet.

    I dug around some more on the Mits website and compared the spec sheets and features. The only differences called out in the Mits features lists were better focusing on the 819 ("Quadfield Focus") and larger speakers (5" on the 809, 6" on the 819). The spec sheet for the 819 does not even mention the "Quadfield Focus", so on that sheet the only difference you can find is the larger speaker size).

    Now I only have to decide if the improved focusing is worth the extra $$.

    Any suggestions?
