Ok, I am starting to build my home theater and am completely confused with what TV to buy. I am interested in buying a WS HDTV monitor in the 53"-57" size. We have a 17' X 12' room so if any of you think the 57" is going to be too big let me know (I guess our viewing distance will be about 14' once the Tv is set and the couch comes in). Until about 3 weeks ago, I seemed pretty set on the Toshiba 57HX81 but I have heard repeatedly of their "ghosting" problem (not sure what exactly this means). Also, I heard that the power sometimes just turns off and back on automatically (is this ghosting?). In addition, just yesterday I also found out that the Mits TVs have some kind of "red push button" problem. I would definitely prefer to have such an expensive piece of equipment ready-to-go right out of the box (with minimal adjustments). So I guess that I am back to square one. I had initially not even looked at the Mits and the Pioneers because I had thought that they would be over my budget (budget~$2700 w/shipping or $3000 w/ship and extended warranty). But I seemed to have been wrong as they are available in this price range. The following are the TVs that I am looking at: Toshiba 57H81 Toshiba 57HX81 Pioneer 533-HD5 Hitachi 53UWX10 (Ultravision) Mitsubishi 55809 Mitsubishi 55859 I have a PS DVD (Toshiba SD-3750), Yamaha HTR-5460 receiver and Polk R40 speakers. Since I will be mostly using my receiver, I am not too particular about the sound. I am more interested in the video quality, reliability and fliexibility (# of ins/outs) on the TV. We will not be buying an STB at least for the next year so we would prefer a TV which can broadcast regular cable and/or dish reasonably well (I understand that we will have to compromise somewhat due to the resolution difference between the broadcast and the TV). Also, like this post isn't long enough, if anyone has pricing info on these (including shipping), I would really appreciate it. I haven't checked the others but I think I can get the Pioneer for about $3590 shipped, the TOhiba HX for about $2540 shipped and the Hitachi (at CC) for $2629 shipped. Once again, sorry for this long post, but I have way too many questions and I definetely need some expert advice. I would greatly appreciate any help that you guys can give me. Thanks.
