I've been out shopping for about a month now, checking the forums here and at Sound and Vision. Been to CC and SA (Orlando area). Looked at the mits,sammys, tosh, sony gw, and the hits. Haved loved the Hitachi since I first laid eyes on it but was a little apprehensive reading the forums at S and V (actually not much there on Hitachi's)> After reading the forums here it seems like if there ever was an issue as far as not liking the picture out of the box I would have no trouble tweaking or getting help tweaking if needed. I have pretty much read almost all the posts on this T.V. (boy my eyes hurt ) and I just can't say enough about the information I've received from so many sources. It has made me comfortable in my decision in my soon to be future purchase and I just wanted to Thank anyone who reads this for their time and interest on what was sometime a confusing (but FUN) upgrade to my home theater. My name is Sgtkev and this is my first but not my last post.
