I am moving into a new house in a couple of weeks and now it is time for my first RPTV. I am looking at 55"-57", $2000 or less, and has a top of a least 8" deep to fit my Paradigm CC. The electronics stores I talk to seem to think Hitachi or Mitsubishi would be the best fit for me, but I am open to others. A built in tuner would be nice, but I would rather have a better looking picture (if the direct choice came up between the two). I will use the TV about equally between TV, movies, and gaming. 1) A store I went to today said the new line of Hitachi will not have a deep, smooth top to fit my CC on. I think he said it would be rounded now. Can anyone confirm/deny this? 2) Is there much difference in quality between the model lines in any given size of the same manufacturer (particularly in Hitachi or Mits.)? 3) Do you have a brand/model preference that would work for me (and why )? 4) Will anything in my specs support 720p? Any other thoughts would be helpful too!
