Well, it is finally that time. And, I know I have come to the right place for expert advice First of all, I'm needing to know if a certain brand is considered to be better than others (Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Toshiba, Panasonic). I have the opportunity to get this RPTV through a reputable dealer (Tweeter) for around 5-10% above dealer cost, so I'm wanting to get the best tv that I can for the money I spend, which should (at most) be around 1,750.00 to 2,000 (after the discount). Any suggestions or insight would be much appreciated. Also, any specific features that I need to look for? Or, are any new models coming out soon that I should just wait for? Thanks in advance!
