After months of thought and careful shopping, I am _this close_ to buying a WS 73713 Mits. I currently have a Sony XBR200 61" and I am looking to go to a new, HD display; the local cable company now has a couple of HD channels and more to come and I can get Dish HD - for now. I watch a lot of 4:3 from Dish and cable via TiVo including a fair amount of sports, so the various stretch modes offered by Mits appeal to me. I finally saw an acutal 713 on display yesterday and I am very impressed; they were, predictably, using 'Finding Nemo' as a demp and it looked great but I had them show me the worst cable channel, our local CBS affliate and it was still pretty good. I've looked at the competitors, considered the Sony 70" but the picture just didn't knock me out and although the picture is very good on some of the 65s, especially the Toshiba and the Sony, I don't want to go down to what would be a smaller picture when compared to my 4:3 61" Sony. Finally, the room is 17 X 20 so space is not a problem but light is. There are two windows we can control with blinds but the other two walls have large, 8 foot archways and light comes splashing in and there is not much I can do about that if I want to stay married. They are quoting $6,000 which is no huge bargain but it includes delivery and setup which means a lot with a set like this. I can find them on the net for around $5,000 but I am sure that freight would eat the $1,000 up in no time since I live in Alaska, let alone local delivery. Then, I'm trying to calibrate my set myself. Maybe not. Any comments or cautions before I do this deal?
