My family is considering purchasing this TV as a Christmas gift, and I was wondering if anybody has had any experience with this set, and if they would recommend it? I watched some DVDs on it at my local HT store and it looked quite beautiful, but I would like a few outside opinions. Would the 53" set be big enough for my room? I sit about 10-11 ft. back from the television. I was also told that I would not need a progressive scan dvd player once I got it, because the TV would do the same job on its own. Is this correct? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.
