I have the opportunity to get either one of the above new model RPTVs for the same price (approx. $2400 - July 4 promos). I can return my Hitachi 51swx20b which I don't like because the Direct TV picture is blurry and I really don't like the 4:3 expansion mode and there is too much overscan of the Zoom1 mode. I have adjusted the set with Avia DVD. I like it in all other respects. Does anyone have any opinions about the new models from Mitsubishi and Hitachi?
