I've decided to wait on a HDTV monitor at this point in time due to all the various unresolved issues, but in the meantime I've decided to go with a 36" flatscreen and have pretty much narrowed it down between the Toshiba Cinema Series and the Sony Wega's. After doing some research and actually seeing both of the televisions side by side I'm leaning toward the Toshiba 36AFX61. The only issue that I'm a little unsure of is the ablity of the Sony to do v-compression. If anyone could shed some light on there experience with the Cinema series and also if I would really notice a great difference without the compression feature well viewing a DVD. Thanks alot in advance.
