OK, here's the deal. Right now I have a nice 36" Sony FD WEGA (KV-36FS12), but want to upgrade to widescreen and HDTV. I saw the new 50" Widescreen Rear-projection Sony KF-50WE610 LCD for $3200. I really think its great, but now I am hearing bad things like black contrast issues and dead pixels. I would use this 50" TV only for regular cable (no HDTV channels), XBox (widescreen progressive 480p) and DVD (Sony Progressive scan w/component cables.) I never plan to upgrade my cable service to HDTV. So, for my uses, is it worth getting? Or should I stick to Plasma? I was thinking about the Sony KE-42XBR900 flat-panel plasma, but its just too dang expensive. By the way, I do want my TV purchase to put me through the next 6-10 years without upgrading.
