Hey everyone, Lately, I've been doing quite a bit of reasearch as I was thinking about upgrading to an RPTV. The TV in question is a Hitachi 46 or 51F510, which from what I've heard and seen is a great set. Now, here is the scenario: The TV is going into a 'bonus room where' my HT is and other things are located, as well as my computer and a work area. Because of this set up, i spend most of the time in here and the TV does take on some abuse, here is what I mean: - The current tv IS on 7-8 hours a day on weekdays, and 8-10 on weekends, 7 days a week. - I WILL watch 4:3 material on the new TV since a most channgels are still not HDTV. Whether I stretch the picture or not will depend on the quality of the image. - I WILL play games on the TV, but mostly on weekends, and mostly for not too long, so this shouldn't be a problem. There will also, of course, be some major DVD viewing as that's the whole reason Im thinking of this upgrade. Should be great with the new Studio 60's Now the question is, what can I expect in terms of durability and sustainability with the use this TV will get? The current TV is 32" Sony set, which has been doing a fantastic job for about the last 7 years, and although I really do want a new set, I dont wan't something that won't last. Plasma is pretty much out of the question, and LCD is also way too expensive to be considered. The only other option is to wait a little longer and put in a littl extra for an LCD RPTV, considering the burn in and such on those isnt quite as bad. (If I've been correctly informed) I was hoping to get this new set by Christmas, but if you guys don't thnk the current CRT RPTVs can handle this, I shall wait. Thoughts Anyone? And Thanks a lot for the input!
