    I have read many threads over the last few weeks trying to figure out what set to buy.

    I was at Tweeters over the weekend and spent some time checking out many sets. I am really starting to lean towards the Samsung 50 inch DLP (HL-R5067W).

    I will be using DirecTV service with it. I will be purchasing a HD receiver from DirecTV as well. I will be playing xbox and gamecube games on it, and watching many DVDs.

    I'm sure many of you own this set, so I would greatly appreciate any help that you can send my way.

    I felt the TV looked great, especially with the HD feed at Tweeters. How is this set when playing games? Is there a delay that would make game playing difficult?

    I can get this set for 1800, tax included through my connection.

    I noticed the 1080p 50 inch Samsung as well, and was wondering if it is worth the extra money? I have heard that the 1080p set doesn't actually accept 1080p signals, is this true?

    thanks again for any info you may have

    The 1080p set is the HL-R5078W

    Question...will 720p feeds look better on a 720p set, or a 1080p set? I assume a 720p feed gets upconverted to 1080p on one of these newer sets. Is this the case? And what will look better?
