There is a big difference between regular dvds and blu-ray's, I can't seem to come out of my room since I bought that Panasonic 37 lcd and a sony blu-ray player, I just got done watching 'Wanted' and the picture is amazing, like Jared stated, I don't even want to go to the movies any more. You haven't seen a naked ass like Angelina's until you see it on blu-ray
<---Zoom mode FTW
My Mitsu in the family room is pretty damn good but it's only in 720p, when I go to my room it's a very big difference, I'm like you Rob, I spent 4k on that Mitsu in '99 and it still pretty good but when I come out of my room, it's hard to go back
I'm looking at the Panasonic 58 plasma 1080p (850u), I really want the 65 but it's double the price, same features as the 58, I just can't justify paying the difference ($5999.) for seven inches, (3-1/2 measured diagonaly)
If you watch a lot of sports (like me) Plasma is the way to go or over LCD.*
On Amazon it's $2800.00, which is pretty good, since Best Buy still has that 58 for $3999.00, I'm going to wait til after the SB and see if can get it for around $2500. or even 2K
*I only bought the lcd since thats the biggest I could put in my bedroom armoire, no plasma's are available that small.
