    Currently, I have an older 53" Sony non-HD set that I purchased several years ago. I'm looking to upgrade now to HDTV, and I really can't argue the price of what these sets are going for.

    My question is, which brand is the best? Toshiba? Mitsubishi? Someone else?

    Thanks for any input!!

    Hitachi. It'll do 1080p from film based content.

    from what i've been told, Hitachi is the only mainstream brand that uses all of their own components. A lot of other companies use Hitachi CRT's.

    That needs to be clarified...

    Apparantly they have a 1080p chip that upsamples the 480p from a dvd. However, the electron gun still scans at only 1080i.

    So saying it does 1080p is misleading. ;)
