MillerDuck and others:
I haven't been able to see the set in person yet (Video Only in Beaverton had sold their floor model) but I have started looking critically at the 720P sets. Unfortunately, it looks like I am very sensitive to SSE(*). As I was walking in the door at Video Only looking at a 720P set, I thought: "Jeez, what the hell is that?"
So (and I kinda' hate to bring this up) do you see SSE and if so, are you able to ignore it?
* SSE= "Silk Screen Effect". From this

This seems to affect all
microdisplay RPTVs regardless of technology. I do not
see in on my current CRT RPTV (Pioneer Elite 610.) Here
is another thread on the subject.
I find it so distracting that I have pretty much decided to pass on all microdisplay sets and wait for the 65" 1080P Panasonic plasma (and live with its reflectivity.) On the other hand I wonder if I could just say to myself: "Self, just chill and watch the damn program and not the screen!"
