I think I'm going to take the plunge into HD. But to be honest, I'm not looking to make a "permanent" investment. I'll wait till I'm married and settled down with a career. In the meantime, here's what I'm looking at. I'm watching standard television, and I'm happy with it, but I see that I'm missing out. 1080p will always be in my future, but at the moment I don't need that capability. Right now, I'm looking at playing games at 720p and experiencing the most out of current gen DVD's. I'm looking at the following right now: Sony KLV-S26A10 Sharp LC-26D7U Sony Bravia XBR KDL-V26XBR1 In short, I want something that can handle 720p, has widescreen, and has decent/good scaling. I calibrated my dad's KLV with THX Calibration found on the Star Wars DVD's, but I would imagine Digital Video Essentials would be better. My immediate future investments involve the XBox 360 and the Playstation 3, and subscribing to my cable company's HDTV. Anything else I need to research before I take the plunge?
