I'm in a debate to get either the Toshiba 51HX83 or the Hitachi S500. I believe that the Toshiba costs less then the Hitachi. I've heard of problems with the Toshiba about a vertical line and a brush aluminum look on the left hand side. Can someone elaborate on this as too where the verticle line is located and what it looks like. Also what does the brushed aluminum look like? I've seen the Toshiba many times but have never noticed it. I believe that the Hitachi is about $300-$400 CND more then the Toshiba. Is it worth the extra CHA-CHING?
