From a practical standpoint the price difference between these two TV's is about $2,000. This means you could purchase a 2006 6070/pro 1540 and probably have enough left over to buy a 2007 6010 in 18-24 months.
My ultimate goal is a 70" 1080P HD Pioneer Plasma TV in my dedicated room.
So, is the 6070 a better choice today than a 6010? After all, I rarely watch 1080P content and mostly view 480I/720P from 8'-9'.
I bet there are some really good deals on the 6070/pro 1540 and they will get even better over the next 30-60 days. Comments? Any slightly used 1540's for sale?
