It is a toss up for me between the Toshiba 65HX81 and the Mitsu. (Can't remember the number) Platinum series. I have seen both and I think the Toshiba looks a little better but Mitsu promises to upgrade firewire if need be.
I would suggest the Mitsubishi's. I got a 65" for $3,100 four months ago, so Im sure you could do the same or better. The 55"'s should also fit easily into your price range. After some slight tweaking they may have the best picture out there. The "promise module" may also make Mitsubishi more favorable in the near future.
