    Does anyone have any feedback? Positive or negative would be greatly appreciated. The whole shopping process is wearing me out. Thanks again.

    Hey Brian:
    I have had the 57HDX82 for nearly a year now and could not be happier.
    The picture quality is unbelievable, and we have had NO problems what so ever.
    In fact, a friend invited us over to see his new 51" Sony Wega - cannot remember which model- it is one of the super slim jobs, and I brought my trusty S&V setup disc for him. After running through the setup, we played Finding Nemo, and I must say I FAR preferred my Toshiba over his Sony. He even has a progressive scan DVD player and I am only using a basic Sony player.
    The stretch modes on my Tosh are great also. Another pal has a 50" Hitachi and the stretch mode he prefers to use- I think it is called panorama or something- is dreadful!
    The outer 6" of the image visibly accelerates towards the sides as the image stretches. It is just weird.
    I would go nuts in ten min. watching a movie, but that is just me, and I am used to my Tosh.
    I don't think you can go wrong with Toshiba.

    Just my $.02
    Regards

    Roy

    I took 2 months to decide, it drove the people around me crazy, as all I had on the brain was HDTV's.


    Best of luck with your purchase.
