I'm pretty new to the HDTV scene, as well as to the projection TVs. I'll get straight to the point:


Based on very limited knowledge, price constraints, and overall warm and fuzzy feeling, I have narrowed my choices to two candidates:


-Toshiba's 65H81 (or 65HX81 if it comes out soon)

-Hitachi's 61SWX10B 2001 Model (or SWX12B if the anti-glare is worth the $$, which I hope you folks will comment on).


I have no clue how to distinguish between these two models as far as performance and quality go. I would hate to base my choice on size alone (that is the only obvious difference to me), since both TVs are about the same $$, the Toshiba would have a size advantage. But I would hate to find out later, if I got the Toshiba, that the Hitachi turned out to be the better model, if only a few inches smaller... can you see where I'm coming from? http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


Please post any comments, info, suggestions, recommendations, etc to help a confused soon-to-be member of the HDTV ranks. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif Thanks

I have the Toshiba TW65X81 (the year 2000 model) and I love it. Your other decision to make is which set-top-box (STB) to buy that receives and decodes the HDTV signal. STB come in three types: over-the-air only, over-the-air and DirectTV, or over-the-air and Dish Network. My STB does over-the-air and Dish Network. Look through the threads and decide which is best for you.


Good luck and you will surely enjoy the results.

Thanks for the reply, Rick. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif Yes, I will have another tough decision to make when it's time for a STB, but for now I'm not even thinking about that yet. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I need to make sure I have a solid performer as my HDTV foundation first and foremost. That is why all opinions are welcome. Please, if you own either of these products, or even if you own another brand, your comments will help a great deal! I am still learning. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif Thanks in advance!
