I'm also going to post this is the FPTV section to get that viewpoint also. I'm going to be purchasing either an RPTV or FPTV this year sometime. I had been looking pretty much at RPTV's (Pioneer Elite and Hitachi are the two front-runners so far) in the 61" range. However, while I've been looking into this stuff, I keep hearing some say how FPTV is the only way to go. I don't mind spending the money so long as I know that I'm going to be happy with it for a while. I don't want to get upgrade fever two months after I buy whatever I end up with. So I guess the long and short of it is, I would like some pro's and con's on owning RPTV's vs. FPTV's. Thanks in advance for the help!
