Based on your viewing material (sports, movies, & video games), I would suggest that you get something that has native 720p resolution or better (1280x720 widescreen) so that your TV doesn't have to do any scaling when it receives a 720p signal. FYI, I believe 720p is better than 1080i for watching fast moving material. For specifics... I don't know much about the TV stuff, I'm a forward projection / home theater kind of guy.
Ok, I can' decide. I have $3-$4,000 allocated for my TV. I watch a lot of sports, some movies, limited reg. tv and the kids play some PS2. I really like the Sony KDF-60XS955. But there is no DVI. I like the Samsung HL-P5085W. But I have heard other say you can't play PS2 on it. And now others have sai they like the Mitsubishi WD-52525 and the Hitachi 50VX915. Paralysis by analysis. I currently have digital cable, but would swap to satellite if need be. Any help would greatly appreciated. I want to make an informed decision that is best! Thanks for the help.
