Guys! Me too, me too! I've owned a PLV-60 for about five years (only on my second bulb) and haven't regretting a moment.
But, I recently blacked out my home theater and the poor contrast level are pushing me toward a new machine as well. I can afford the RS-1, but without a vertical stretch mode, I'm not sure if I really want it. (I've always wanted to try a constant height image at 2.35:1.)
So, a dying breed? YES! But, we're still pretty big in regards to numbers!
