I'm REALLY close to buying this set....

Any comments from owners of this set that shows why ,,, or why not to get it ? How does it do on regular cable, and on DSS (DirecTv)?

Are these sets tweakable ? How is using the remote everyday ?

And if anyone has an STB,,,, what are you using ?

I already know DVDs will look terrific....

Price is $3300... with a 30 day return if I decide I don't like it.... Is that a decent price ?... and if its not... don't tell me http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

I prefer not to go the mail order route for a purchase this big....

The Pioneers look great, but just to pricey for me at this point....

In looking at the specs for the Hitachi TV... it says it has 1000 lines of resolution... If it only does 1000 lines, how does it display 1080i ?

The Toshiba sets boast 1600 lines, and other manufacturers claim 1200 or more....... What is that referring to, and is it significant ?


Thanks all for any input......

Shelly

I found Hitachi sets to be the 'brightest'-and in fact would have loved to buy them but for their pricing, and also I was sceptical on HD performance (my opinion since I had heard from 2 folks who were not happy with it)


Resolution should not bother you..panasonic claims 850 lines hor res, and Mits has 1200. Tosh 1600 may not be accurate (an independent study put that as ~850-thru Abdul's post).


I got a cool deal on Tosh 56" otherwise Hitachi would be a strong contender http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

one more question....

On the Hitachi 61SWX01W, as you look at the front of the TV, which side is the connection panel on ?

Thanks
