I have owned a Panasonic 50" for 1 1/2 years. It is the commercial unit meaning it does not have a tuner or speakers. Simply put it is a 50" monitor. Mine is connected to DirecTV with a HD receiver. I chose this unit because of its overall rating. It is spectacular! I didn't need a tuner because I live too far away from broadcast tv towers and I didn't need tv speakers because I have a surround system. Even with cable you will need their HD box to receive HD. Wanting HD means you will probably be using cable or satellite as a signal source. Bottom line, this is the unit to buy. Two of my friends have DLP units. They agree the picture on mine is better, much better. The only problems I have had are watching television not in HD and getting off the couch to do something other than watch tv. I plan on building a new house in the near future and will be buying one or two more TVs. They will be panasonic commercial units. One other suggestion is to get a digital HD recorder to record shows in HD. This whole HD thing is really unbelieveable. Once you make the move you will see and I do mean see.

I notice from reading what I can find that the panasonic is the best picture in the business. I personally liked the Pioneer but the LG seems to be a nice set with a much lower price. Is the LG worth it or do I go for one of the big boys? Also, for those who have seen the Panasonic set, how is the green reproduction? I've read the pioneer has issues in that regard. Thanks in advance!
