Thanks guys, that's what I thought, although being a bit of a newbie to the world of HDTV has me outguessing myself. Jimbo, The set will get too much use, so I can't go with a DLP or I'll be changing a $600 bulb every year, and the room will not allow a projector as there is just too much ambient light. (12' X 8' of glass with a Southern exposure, plus far too many other windows. And no, drapes are not an option.) While cost is of course a factor, I am placing...

(I can't even find a local place to purchase it at if that is the decision, but that is another story) 2) Zenith D65W25 -- the replacement model for the 64W10W...
