    KP53HS20 is the a 53" Toshiba HDTV that I have had my eye on to purchase. It is over $2200.00 delivered so I hope that I have done my research right and this is a great set. Would anyone else have an idea or set that might be a better buy. Thanks for any help. I will be purchasing in late Sept of this year.

    I meant 55H70 not KP53HS20. Sorry for the confusion.

    Hey,
    I dont know if that set is widescreen, and if your interested in that. But i just purchased the Toshiba 50" HDTV Widescreen (50H81 - http://www.bestbuy.com/detail.asp?e=...=24&scat=1470) for 2373.00 from Best Buy. Of course this set is so popular that they cant keep any instock and I have to wait almost a month before I can pick it up (it will be paid off before its in my house!!)
    I would suggest, depending what you are using it for, to get this set!! It may cost a bit more (after tax and service plan 2800, after wiring etc 3000) but I think well worth it!
    Lemme know what you do and how the set is if you get it!!
    Good Luck!
    -Jason K.

    The 55H70 is last year's 4x3 model. You should consider one of the new ones coming out now/shortly like the 53H71 instead. The old models don't do anamorphic squeeze for 480i/p images, ie. DVDs, which is very important if you want good DVD performance.

    I second the recommendation for the Toshiba 50H81 if you can handle 16:9. I have this set, and it is wonderful!
    Just DO NOT purchase it from Best Buy... Why?
    Read the following thread:

    Buy instead from Sears if you can... They will price match the best internet price you can find.
