First, let me say thank you to everyone for making this forum so informative. I've been reading posts for the last few weeks and I learned so much in a very short time. Very well done!!! I'm pretty much a newbie. I'm making my first attempt to build my home theater. I need some advice on the TV. I want the biggest one I can get without sacrificing the picture quality. In other words, I'd rather have a 48 inch that looks excellent than a 55 inch that only looks average. It has to be High Def - I do not need the tuner built in. My budget is $2000. So far I looked at the Panasonic PT47WX53, the Sony KP46WT510, and the Hitachi 46W500. Yesterday I got serious and went to a 'real' store (instead of Circuit City and Best Buy) and found two Mitsubishis that I really like: The WS-48413 for $1800 and the WS-55413 for $2000. Do you think it is worth it to buy the Mitsubishi over a similar size Sony or Hitachi that cost $500 less? Thank you.
