It’s amazing how much more you learn about HT technology when you are in the market to make an upgrade or a large purchase. I’ve been holding out on the purchase of a new television to ensure I would have a 1080p input. To be honest, I’m relatively torn at this point between one of the new Sony SXRD XBR models due out this year (most likely 60”) or the Samsung 5679. I would really like to see the Samsung for myself before I decide. I suppose I should give HP’s MD5880 a shot too, but I’ve never been an HP fan to be honest. Anyway, I am certain that which ever set I go with, it’s going to take a huge chunk out of my wallet. For a while I was worried that if I bought a new television, then a newer model would come out that would put my set to shame and will feel like I had wasted my money. However, it’s become clear through the words of so many members, that eventually one just has to bite the bullet because that’s the progressive nature of technology. Now, as proud as I am to have narrowed down my selection to two units (fine…three for Mr. Fowkes), the discussion of SED is still getting the best of me and making me hesitant. I’m in the market for a television that will keep me satisfied for at least 5 years and knowing that these will be out in 07’ and be heavily marketed in 08’ concerns me. Does anyone have any idea what the starting price range will be for a SED when they finally become available? I’d like to think that by the time they become readily available at a reasonable cost, it will be 2011…just in time for me to upgrade. =) How have others justified their purchasing the "latest and greatest" knowing that it would be such a short time before it becomes yesterday's news? Should I just wait it out even longer for a price drop? Should I wait for SED? Perhaps I should got with a cheaper unit for now to hold me over? I suppose these are questions that only i can decide, but I know i can't be the only person faced with this type of dillema around here.
