Around here it is the opinion of most the best model currently is the Sony 34XBR800. However Sony is coming out with much improvied super-fine-pitch widescreen models in a few months.

I'm partial to the XBR series myself, but Toshiba and Panasonic definitely have their followings as well. "Best" can come down to taste or personal preference in the form of color temperatures, black levels, sharpness/softness and convenience features. The best recommendation I can give is to view them in the store under the best conditions you can (this can be tough sometimes) , compare features, ergonomics, etc, and get what suits you best.

Look at the link in my signature. If you want something like my set-up or native 720p means a lot to you, then get a large-screen CRT monitor from Monivision/CTX/Princeton Graphics.

This year's Toshibas (34HDX82, 34HD82) accept 720p and convert it to 1080i for display.


I very much like the pq on the Toshibas ... the 34HDX82 was my second choice (behind the Sony 34XBR800).


As Kipp noted ... best thing to do is to go out and see for yourself. Depending on these message boards for reviews is ... um ... dicey at best.

But why do you need to upgrade from the 34HF81 to the 34HDX82? Just for DVI and/or 720p input? Wait a few months for newer models that might offer even more features and lower cost. The 34HF81 is only about one year old.

The Sony xbr910 is not expected until July according to one Sony press release:

http://news.sel.sony.com/pressrelease/3065


Sorry I don't know about the Toshiba models but maybe an AVSforum search would help or maybe going to the Toshiba website and searching for press releases or finding someone at Toshiba to e-mail would help. The Toshiba 34" widescreen is finding an important niche for folks who want a narrower cabinet. Good luck. :)

There's a smaller Sony 30" coming out at the same time as the 34". It's the KV-30XBR910 Super Fine Pitch. This might be the ticket for your space. If at all possible, I'd wait to see it first before pulling the trigger on another TV.
