Come this winter, I'm finally going to take the plunge and upgrade from a 27" Sony trinitron to a larger set. I've been teetering between the 36" Wega Direct View sets and the 40-50 inch 16X9 sets (similar prices of course...roughly 2k range). While I haven't made up my mind yet, I would like to get some input from some of you guys who currently have the RPTV sets like the PT-47WX49, Toshiba 40H80, etc who not only play DVDs on their sets, but also play video games such as Playstation 2, etc. How has the picture been? Are you afraid that excessive video game use on your nice RPTV will hurt the set over a year or so? What have you guys done with the same decision...gone direct view or rp? I will probably split the use of my new set 3 ways - 33 percent Cable input, 33 percent dvd movies, 33 percent video games. Thanks!
