will there be another version of the 34? for sure?
How much longer will direct views last? I'm pro-direct view, and I'm not a huge fan of lcd or plasma, but they are both getting much better, and much cheaper... not to mention the "cool" factor - which makes or breaks products. I tend to think that the kv34xbr800 might be one of the last big direct views offered. I don't know about *the* last, but soon they'll be gone. gone way of the cassette and vhs tapes. (still around, but not the number 1 seller?)
Do WEGA's still have the "cool" factor? I noticed a year or so ago, most of the major shows, like Entertainment Tonight or news channels, use to have a WEGA in the background...are they not "in" anymore?
Don't get me wrong, the widescreen directview IS COOL. ...but when i mention to my friends that i'm looking at an hdtv they ask if its a plasma/lcd, then they tell me that they are going get one of those instead, one day. Go to a store and look at how many people are gathered around the plasma display area vs the directviews.

Well, they have a bit more budget for "cool" than most of us
