Ok... I should have $2,500 to play with for a TV. I went to Circuit City and looked around for 2 hours, and talked to 3 different sales guys. 1) I can't convince myself to get 1080p. The BlueRay DVDs look GOOD, but I can tell the film itself isn't 1080p, as it looks nothing like the demo DVDs for BlueRay. And that's about it for 1080p sources, BlueRay or HD DVD, neither one actually takes full use of 1080p. 2) Even looking at 720p sets, that are NON CRT, I can't seem to find one that can take a non 720p signal (whether it be 480i, 480p, etc) and make it look good. They all look pixelated. My dad's 3 year old Sony CRT HDTV does a much better job at playing a regular DVD from a progressive scan player...which is what I will be doing...because as far as I can tell the "upconverting" players look like crap on any set, but a CRT. So...the non CRT HDTVs are good, if you are at their max resolution. Anything less, to me, looks bad. If someone can point out a DLP (or non CRT in general) TV that plays less-than-perfect sources well, I'd like to know.
