    I'm currently looking at a panasonic CT-34WX52 for my new television. I'm looking for something that has hdtv and also has the 16:9. What are your opinions on this or is there a better TV in the same price range?

    There is no DVI on this set if thats important to you. The sony 34xbr800 seems to be the leader in the 34" 16x9 area. Toshiba also has 2 34" HD sets 34HD82 and 34HDX82, both have DVI and look to be very promising sets.

    I have the Sony, but the picture quality of the Panasonic is comparable. You would not be disappointed with either display. If DVI is important to you, that would tip the scales away from the Panasonic.

    Outstanding! Thanks for the reply and the linkage to the manual. Gotta love Adobe Acrobat Reader! [​IMG]
    I chuckled when I saw the "[c]onsult your consumer electronics dealer for availability" note in connection with the reference to "a DVD player equipped with a DVI-D single-link output connection."
    Is that what we call vaporware? [​IMG]
