I posted this in the lounge already, but was posting here to see what you guys thought in case you don't frequent the lounge.

Sony by nature is a tad over priced. For the original price that's an awful purchase. $1500 should get 1080p these days. But that sale price of $900 is pretty damn good. I like it.

Well I wouldn't get anything over 1 grand at the moment. But it was the largest model I saw under $900 on the larger store websites, and it has really good reviews ocerall it seems too.

Just be aware that with rear projection you will have to replace the bulb every few years. Try checking out avsforum.com (or avsforums, one of those two).

$100-$300 Usually go over 5 years between bulbs.

There's a Hitachi 51" rear projection(1080i/720p) on sale for $700 this weekend, that I think I am going to look at. It isn't as sleek, but it looks like it offers pretty much all the same sort of stuff and I haven't read any bad reviews. Only con seems to be the size. I figure i'll give it the ol' eye test today after work, or tomorrow before I go to my friend's wedding.

Well I went to the store and checked stuff out, but didn't commit to anything. I guess I wanted to see what else was out there. I saw this particular model on friday and liked it, but it wasn't on sale, and this week it is.

Not sure how good it is. I thought the picture looked real good in the store.
