Having an 8-yr.old 27" Sony Trinitron already, I thought I would like to move to a 36" Wega KV36FS13 (or -17). Until tonight. While at BB, my wife asked me to show her what I had in mind. Right beside the Sony was the Panasonic CT36SX31 (Tau) and the Toshiba 36AF561. She said that 'those lines' in the Sony bothered her and she liked the Panasonic better. I noticed that the Panny doesn't have the 16:9 Conversion; is that something that I'll really want? I'd like to hear from those of you that may have any of these sets. Pros? Cons? Decisions, decisions .. Thanks!
