I've heard many good things about both of the TV's and the only major differences I've seen are the resolution and the price. I've been reading through the threads and I've seen that resolution isn't as important from different distances. When I'm watching TV I will be out of the 1080p effective range, however when I play Video games I like to sit up close so I would be able to take full effect of the added resolution (I have a PS3). If the PQ is basically the same on the two sets and the lesser resolution isn't a problem then the price on the Pioneer PDP-5070HD can't be beat. I wanted to hear everyones input on this since I will be buying soon and these are the two HDTV's I rounded down too. Also are there any other similar models that i should add to the mix. Thanks in advance.
