led dlp rear projections, flat panel crt's, 100inch plasma's, 65inch lcd's, 1080p dlp's with actual 1920x1080 mirrors instead of wobulation, lcos, blah blah blah, yadi yadi yada.
first generation HD DVD's will not support 1080p, it will only support 1080i/720p. blue-ray will do 1080p you will not see a difference between 1080p or 1080i signals on a 1080p tv right now cause these tv's only upscale the picture to 1080p (unless you use firewire...but who actually does that in real life situations). tv broadcasts will not be 1080p for a VERY VERY long time.
you will spend your life savings trying to keep up with technology. most likely, there are at least 3 different tv's out there that will do everything that u are looking for. go head and get it.....and most likely you will be very happy. dont get fooled by the number game. 10,000:1 contrast or 1080p doesnt always mean the tv is better.
I've been looking at the current line up of TVs and want to wait for TVs to support 1080p, but when is that gonna' be? I thought I heard something about SED or some TV tech that is coming out next year.
