I have a choice of purchasing either a 'NEW' Sony 36XBR800(stand included) for $2000 or a new,'Demo' Panasonic CT-36HX41 for $995. Either way, I'm moving up to a 36" HD set (Cox provides the HD set-top box for an additional $7 per mo.) Right now, I watch 95% PPV TV movie channels as well as the occasional DVD(which I'm sure will increase with the purchase of the new HD set) My thinking is that things will change in a big way in 3-4 yrs. down the road when most of the material available will be wide-screen and I'll lay out the $$ then for a "good, large" wide-screen plasma set(or whatever the best happens to be at that time) For now, I can get the 'better' Sony or I can get the 'good Panasonic for $1000 less(to be saved now and spent down the road on a really good wide-screen set ) Is the Sony really worth the extra $1000 over the Panasonic? OR, should I save the $$ now, go with the Panasonic and be happy I got a good 36" HD set for $1000? Any thoughts or help on the subject would be greatly appreciated!!
