Upgrade-itis has now possessed me and I would now like to replace my 36" direct-view Toshiba with a 16:9 HD RPTV of some sort. I've been over to the other "Spot" to read comments in the Manufacturer's sections, but it's hard to get a good opinion on the different brands I'm considering as everyone usually has a complaint of some sort that may/may not be unique to their situation. I'm hoping that some of the more technical members of this forum, especially the ISF trained guys, could provide me their insights on the following sets (all are 53-58" models BTW): Mitsubishi WS-55909/55909 WS-55819 WS-55859 Pioneer Elite Pro-HD520 Pro-HD620 Toshiba 57HX71 Hitachi 53SWX12B Those are all the models I'm considering. My room is 11 x 24, which factored into the size TV I was considering. For signal sources, I plan on using a progressive DVD player of some type (only have a Panasonic RV-31K right now), a Dish HD receiver, and analog cable. My main concerns *aside* from picture quality basically relate to the stretch modes for watching 4:3 material. Pros and Cons for each of the sets? I really would like to go with one of the Elites, but my budget won't allow at this time. Depending on the feedback I get from you all, I can wait to get the Elite if you think it's worth it. Thanks for letting me draw on your experiences!!!
