not being impressed with my first generation sony dvd player's (w/svideo connect) image on this set i decided to give progressive scan a whirl before i made my decision to keep/return the TV. i picked up the JVC S65 from best buy for $249. after firing it up, i have to say the difference between 480i and 480p is HUGE! its almost as noticeable as vhs and dvd was on my 32" direct view set. i'm not sure if i will keep the JVC or get one of the Panny progressive players (maybe the RP56 for the same price when it is in stock) but progressive scan seems to be the only way to go on this set. i hope i will be as impressed with HDTV once i get a STB.
