I am sortof in a bind and need to know what direct view set you guys recommend for around $5,000. The situation is that my mom went behind my back and purchased a Loewe Aconda 38'' and we are somewhat unsatisfied with it. It also has problems with the Sony 9000ES using progressive mode. Instead of coming to me to do the research she trusted a salesman :-( Bottom line is that If we are going to try and exchange it for another set, we need to do it VERY soon. If anyone has a recommendation for a direct view set in this price range, that is preferibly 16:9, supports 720p and has a VGA (RGB) input, please let me know. I'm open to all options however.. Sorry for the double posts. Thanks.
