Well, after many months of agony, I just went ahead and pulled the trigger and bought my 503CMX from Dell. It was just too good an opportunity to pass-up. This builds upon my existing Panasonic 42" unit in the bedroom. I am truely a plasma addict. =) It will be interesting to compare the two. Now I just need to get rid of my front projection setup... Today, I reclaim my living room space (or in a week anyway). I will no longer be a slave to throw distances. Thanks again for everyone's input.
