Read somewhere that <costly> bandwidth increases will take 8+ yrs to occur, likely more and most signals will be 1080i until then, so the current state will like be much the same for the time being, with slight changes in technology such as 120 hz for lcd's.

I just bought a 720 vs the 1080 and at 14', can't see any difference in resolution, BUT picture quality could be a bit better, especially with upconverting- old media is still old and 1080 capability doesn't necessarily make a difference:rubeyes:

I'm hope for 10-12 good years of use, but agree with lcaillo's opinion.
