My reasons to wait...
no HDTV has a 1080p input....(except HP DLPs, but they run 1080p @24fps, instead of full 60fps)
Reasons for 1080p input:
PS3, HD-DVD, Blu-Ray DVD, and the future of full HDTV 1080p broadcasts...
1080p is 1920*1080 running at 60 frames per second...
where as 1080i (currently available) runs at 30 frames per second..that's why 1080p has a smoother & better picture.
All 1080p TVs out right now has no actual 1080p input, they just upconvert 1080i/720p/480i/p signals...
I suggest you wait until 2006, when real 1080p tvs will have actual 1080p inputs.
I am looking to upgrade my TV, and am thinking about the Mitsu or Samsung DLP TVs. Probably with a 50" or 56" model, somewhere around there. I would like the new 1080I or is it 1080P resolution?
Anyways, I would like to know the reasons why I should wait to purchase the TV. As we all know, it is best to avoid some of the initial builds on new models of cars because of the various recalls and quality problems that need to be fixed. Why wait on the TV side?
I do know this one. Some TVs come with the capability of inseting a cable card, but at this point they are only 1 way so if you want video on demand, you still need a box.
I think I read on another forum that not all TVs have the HDMI input.
So, list them out for me and tell me why I should wait.
I also may have read that the TVs use artificial upconversion or something like that.
