    That's a little on the high side for the specs but it is a good television.

    The newer tv's support 1080p @ 60hz so you might want to give them a look :)

    The latest ones, yes. But they also cost more typically. 60 should be fine I would think.

    I have a sony rear projection TV. Does 1080i at 60hz (30hz interlaced). Nothing like watching movies on a big screen :)

    i was in bestbuy today and saw some 65" tv's and they are not a waste i can tell you.

    but i made up my mind not to get a dlp tv at least, because of the viewing angle.

    they had the new xbr5's, but no xbr4's.

    i have to say though that that sony's did look the best.

    I have an LG 50" Plasma hanging on my Living Room wall. Damn down sized from an old RCA 52" Rear Projection TV. :s But hey, wide screen and HD. Plus I got 3 feet of Living Room real estate back too. :laugh:

    I play my PS2 on it a bunch and hopefully if/when me gets PS3 that will be primary weapon of choice. :D

    My TV? It's only a 780p. I don't think you would be interested in this one. Since there isn't any true 1080p programing out, or will be out any time soon I went with cheaper.

    Both my HDTVs are 720P, but if I were buying one now I would definitely go 1080P -- primarily due to the recent developments with Blu-ray "winning the war." I still wouldn't be buying a Blu-ray player in the near future on account of prices, but once I was ready I would want to play those discs at their highest resolution.
