I had a chance to look at the 50" last night. I really liked the unit and I am seriously thinking about blowing my budget and buying one. Expected delivery is 2 weeks.
The OTA HD tuner worked great and was able to bring in locals that his STB (mdl?) could not. SD satellite feeds were ok from about 9' and back. HD, DVD looked awesome.
I noticed something however that bothered me, in some of the dark colored scenes of Monsters INc. I noted what looked like "blocks" of color that were of a different shade than the "block" next to it. The shades would shift. Is this screen door?
I don't think I have ever seen a rainbow on a DLP and did not see anything like that on the RCA. To be honest I'm really not sure what I'm looking for!
The 720P issue seems signifigant to some. I am not sure that I would notice it. Then again, in a couple years I might.
I do like the fact you can controll the front panel blue lite intensity, and the projection lamp intensity.
Remote was ok.
The sales guy is really not wanting to move much on the price. I will have to spend some time bearing down on him to get the $900 off of MSRP that I am looking for. Not a bad looking stand either.
