I am about ready to make the jump and buy a RPTV. Many months ago, I though I would go 4:3 analog and get the Toshiba 50a62 (probably the best 50" analog TV on the market). But now I think I need to plan for the future and get HDTV ready. I still want 4:3. It's 90% of our viewing and I don't want burn in. I WILL NOT pay more than $1,500 for this TV. I want a 50" +/-. I will not buy a 43". After buying a TV stand for a 43", it is just as much as a 50". I like Toshiba, and would like the 50H72, but it is currently priced too high. I also like this Panasonic, the 51HX42. Currently, the 51hx42 can be bought via SamsClub.com for $1,299. That is several hundred dollars cheaper than anywhere else, and fits my price range. I have one question, and would seek advice on this TV from any owners or anybody that is familar with it. The question: this TV will do the 16:9 squeeze, but only for 1080i material. Does a squeeze actually help prevent burn-in versus just watching widescreen on this TV without doing the sqeeze. I know the picture would be better doing the squeeze. I am more concerned with preventing burn-in. Greg, Jack, Neil, anybody else: what are your thoughts? Is this a good buy? For now, I will still be using basic cable, but as more channels become available in HD, I will switch to a better format. Local channels are still not available through Dish or DirecTV. I will wait to see what will be better for me. Thanks in advance for any input.
