After reading about 1/3 of the thread and then skipping to the last few pages, I'm leaning again toward 1080p. However, in the Panasonics, that will result in a loss in contrast ratio. As I have learned from other threads, I should be more concerned about contrast ratio than resolution. So, do I opt for the 42"pz700u or the 42" px77u? Sure the pz700u's higher resolution sounds good, but the 5000:1 vs. 10000:1 in the 77u seems like a major loss in overall PQ.
My view distance (6.5' - 7.5') lends to the 1080p choice, but we still watch a bunch of SD cable, so our choice isn't obvious....
All that, along with the old, if I get the 77u, I might just be able to swing the 50", but then I"m back to bigger pixles, and thus would want to get the higher resolution....
Glad I can still use my slightly broken Sony XBR910 for now.
