AFter weeks of research, and looking at many units, side by side, with different inputs (DSS, NTSC, DVD progressive), etc, I have come to the following three:

Mitsubishi WS55411
Pioneer PRO-530HD
Toshiba 57HDX82

So far, the Mits looks like the top contender, but before I cough up the $$$, I wanna see what you guys think.

ANy comment, advice, etc, is welcome! I appreciate it!:emoji_thumbsup:

There is no "best" TV. The three you listed are all very good and made by well know companies. Everyone has different reasons for picking a TV and it looks like you have compared the three and are close to making a decision. I purchased the 55411 back in Sept. and I think it's great. I've tweaked it with Video Essentials and the picure is the best I have ever seen (I haven't seen any other HDTVs outside of the showrooms though). The only problem I have is the red push on the component inputs. It's not bad but it is noticable. I can either buy an attenuator to lower the red on the input, build an IC2 cable and flash the EPROM to adjust the color or have it professionally calibrated.

I have is the red push
That seems to be the issue with the Mits. But from reading at all forums they all have issues.
I asked some professional people and this the order they listed them.
Pioneer
Toshiba
Mits

This again is there opinion. I have seen the Mits/Pioneer next to each other set up in a Hi Fi store and I noticed the red push on the Mits myself.
When I am ready to buy it will probably be Pioneer or Toshiba....
