There are several direct view 16:9 sets coming out in the next several months. Just to name a few: RCA will have a 34" without an integrated tuner. Sony, Toshiba, Philips, and Panasonic will all be replacing their 34" sets; all don't have intregrated tuners. Main difference will be DVI and some new software improvements. One I've had my eye on for a while is the new Zenith set. Has a built in HDTV tuner, list price is $2500. Should be out sometime late next month. That's what I'm holding out for!!
