    :bowdown: Bought it at BB last night for $600, couldn't really pass it up. Glad I didn't opt for the useless 1080p, it all looks the same sitting 9ft away on the couch. When I finish my basement and build my HT setup and get 50in+ then 1080p will be worth it. In the mean time, PS3 + Panny plasma ftw!
    Haven't had a chance to run any HD content through it yet, but I'm pretty impressed with how standard def looks, obviously it will improve drastically with HD, but it looks better than I was expecting. Working on getting the Planet Earth series to watch.
    Anything else I should look up?

    I have the same one being delivered tomorrow. Got it for $502 shipped on the Dell deal. Was hesitant on it only being 720p, but have heard nothing but good things.

    Nice! Realistically though, under 50in an at normal viewing distance 1080p doesn't look any better than 720p, plus then it doesn't need to scale everything up than either. Plus unless you're using for a computer monitor it won't matter.
    Fire up some Planet Earth!
