    I have done the research and narrowed it down to these two. Please help me decide which one of these televisions is the better set. I can get either for about 1950.00 usd. I have went back and forth and cannot decide. I know the sony comes with the tuner but my location will not allow me to use it. I also know they both have anti reflective screens yet the sony510(perfect for me) which is about 300 less does not. It will be in a room with a reasonable amount of light so I will feel more comfortable with the anti glare screen. If I choose the hitachi over the sony I would just like a good justification for the choice because of the tuner difference as well as price. However, I think the hitachi may be a better set. Thnks to all who help in this decision making process.

    Adam, I love my Hitachi 51s500. From the
    research I did before buying, I learned
    that Sony makes the best picture tube tvs
    and Hitachi, closely followed by Mitsubishi,
    make the best projection tvs. The anti glare
    screen really made a difference in my room
    full of windows. I saw the s500 at HHGregg
    for $1850 2 weeks ago.
