was trying to decide to go with the sammy LN32C550 or LG 32LD450 (both ~$500) went and saw both at store in person, decided on sammy. checked on amazon, price jumped to $570
so as i cannot spend more than $500, the 550 is out, but now i'm considering the 530. the thing is, LG only has 2 HDMI in's and you can't play video files (streaming or USB).
I noticed that the 530, does NOT stream, but you can still play video files via USB from HD/flash. I have a 300GB usb harddrive, so what type of files are compatible with the 530's internal video player? mostly I have divx/xvid, but also will start getting more HD file formats, so trying to figure out which file types will play.
on the other hand, found a mom and pop electronics shop selling a NEW sammy 61" DLP. bellieve it or not, from 2007. it was a floor model (open box), but never previously owned. they're asking $600 if i can talk them down to $500 i think i will go with that. I always loved the way sammy dlp's looked, wish they still made them.
