I checked out a another store online and found the 65734 for the same price as the Toshiba but can't compare them all side by side.
My question is, of the three which will give me the best overall TV, picture, quality, inputs, etc. I want to stay below $2000 to my door.
I have been on Mits website but honestly don't really know the difference between the different models. Thanks for the help everyone
I have a WD-Y65, purchased in Dec 2006 from CC. No problems with it, and it has a great picture. (I use it more for a computer monitor than television most days). The replacement, WD-Y657, has 4 HDMI inputs, and an additional component input. It's a bit lighter and slimmer than the Y65. On the other hand, they did away with the cable card slot in the Y657, and the DVI input.

When I bought my tv, I was working at CC, and wanted the biggest screen, with the most features, for the least amount of cash. Since the Mits Y-65 had the best picture, a DVI input for my pc, and the lowest price (between the 60 in Sony SXRD, 61 in Samsung) I bought the Mits. I think the $932 cc employee rebate helped to sway me at the time.
The best thing for you to do is to buy what looks good to you and what you can afford. If married, don't forget about the WAF. (Wife Acceptance Factor) Find an outlet that has a good exchange policy and at least a 30 or 60 day price guarantee also. If you are a AAA member, you can get a 10% off most purchases coupon for CC.
The Toshiba did not exist at the time of my purchase - It has a good pic, but not as good as the Y-65, in my opinion. You get what you pay for...
