I'm more than ready to ditch my mid-90's Toshiba 48" and jump into the HDTV/HTPC arena.


I've poured over this forum and learned about the differences/issues with both LCD and DLP RPTVs, however I'm still at a loss as to what my purchase should be. I'm highly interested in creating a HTPC, but I'm still stuck on the "best" display.


I've fallen for the Grand Wega, however I understand that it's not pc friendly, so that's out. The Samsung 50xxW series looks incredible, and while the Panasonic PT-45 series has a similar PQ, it's a little too funky looking for the wife (esthetically pleasing is my only barrier with the wife). LCoS is a little outside the budget (~$4k with HDTV tuner).


My room size is 25' x 15', so I feel anything 40" or smaller is *too* small.

Am I missing anything, like perhaps a (bright) non-dlp/lcd RPTV that is PC friendly? Are there any other HDTV monitors I should be looking at?


Thanks guys,

Ok, I've decided on the Samsung HLN 507w, available now at a local appliance store.


I'm going in 1 hour to purchase. Anyone care to stop me?
