Would it be better to go with a 5070HD instead?
I would guess based upon my experience with a native 1080 panel at 45" from 8.5' both programs come in crystal clear on my Sharp 45" and I'm preparing to go up either a 57" Samsung LCD or other larger panel and for the fact that I can view them having owned a 50" PDP and a 60" SXRD from the same distance. A 45" is too small for me as it comes in so damn clear with 1080i I can get up to the screen without seeing artifacts - especially CSI Miami. My Sharp is a fantastic panel IMO but I want bigger 6months later but the big Sharps take a Mortgage so my allegiance ends at $15K.
The only issue becoms 480i SD which I rarely bother with nowand I see no reason why this 6070 cannot equal my Sharp except it won't have as great a pixel fill. 720P being HD I see no reason to expect anything less than HD and the only issues I see are when they use camera's that are not HD or when they compress common golf tournaments. I'm not a fan of Lost but when I pop in on it periodically it's clear as a bell as is NFL Primetime Football. I would guess at your distance a 6070 should be great and develop tolerance for 480i as you would on any large HT panel. Good Luck!
