    A local dealer is selling the Panasonic 47wx42 for 1300 and the Toshiba 42h82 for 1500. I was wondering what folks would choose in this situation. Size over price? Vice versa? Features on one not found on the other that tips the scale?

    I was looking at the same models and ended up with the Panny. Its 5" bigger than the Tosh and the size match my living space. Once you get it calibrated with Avia, the picture looks beautiful. I plan to get it ISF later. I don't notice the stretch mode being so awful on what other have said about the Panny. I think it looks great. I view my cable in "Just Mode" and from my eyes, it looks just as good as the Tosh.

    The HD box is coming. Can't wait to see that.

    Its all up to you. If you think one looks better than the other, get whatever you prefer.

    I choosed the Panny because it looked good and I've been researching this model for a long time.

    Tim,

    HD content will knock your socks off! [​IMG] It's certainly making me re-evaluate the amount of "regular TV" viewing I want to do from the major networks. CBS shows like Alias and The Agency look awesome. [​IMG] Also, even the non-HD stuff on the HD channels look much better than otherwise--quite close to good DVD quality.

    Enjoy!

    How do you know which shows are in HD? Is there a listing somewhere on the net?

    Tim,

    go to Titan Tv and sign-up and it will give you a listing of HDTV in your area.
