    Check out the following Toshiba USA links:
    Product Info (applies to all HDX82 models except for dimensions/weight)
    Owner's Manual
    I am also thinking of getting either 50 or 57HDX82.

    Does anybody happen to know what the suggested retail prices will be on the HDX82 line in Canada? I am thinking about getting either a 57" or 65" HDX82, but I am a bit on the clueless side as to how much they will run [​IMG] The end of the month can't come quick enough, now if I could just find a Panasonic RP82 up here.....

    Andrew,

    JohnnyG (Next Big Thing Electronics) has RP82 in Silver.

    He will also carry HDX82 line and I believe the prices are expected soon. Future Shop has prices for all HDX models on their system. Can only remember 57" for $4299 - I'm not sure about accuracy of their pricing, though.

    Anyone know where I can find the 57HDX82 the cheapest?

    I found a site that has it for $2199 USD, but I haven't had any experience with the site. Anyone know other places I could purchase it online?

    I was considering purchasing a Toshiba 50HX81 rear projection tv for my bedroom. Now it appears that it has been superceded by the 50HDX82. Does anybody have any comments about this new model? Any general comments about Toshiba rear projection tv's?

    They've made the following changes this year:

    - Improved CRTs (now called PowerFocus HD Wide)
    - New fine-pitch lenticular screen
    - CableClear noise reduction (it really works!)
    - Adjustable Scan Velocity Modulation (Low/High/Off)
    - New 30MHz super wideband video amplifier (HDTV requires 24MHz bandwidth)
    - New TheaterLink IR repeater system
    - Improved Touch Focus auto-convergence system
    - New DVI/HDCP digital input

    I'm going from memory here, but I think that list is pretty complete.

    Toshiba Canada = Toshiba USA

    Pegasus III = PowerFocus HD Wide
    Niltava = PowerFocus HCF

    Exact same parts, just different names for some reason.

    I just bought my 50HDX82 from Lee's Video in Seattle for 1899 plus 250 shipping to Los Angeles. No tax. He is an authorized retailer, you can go to Toshiba's web site and put in his zip code (he's a B&M). Check it out.
