Okay, I don't know much about the ins and outs of high def, so maybe you guys can clue me in.
I've been half-heartedly shopping for a decent used 50" plasma TV and have noticed that the prices on 1080p's have come way down.
The question: Which would be a better buy: A used Pioneer PDP-5070HD (top rated by C-Net and other reviewers) with 720p resolution for $900-1000, or a new Samsung PN50B550T2F 1080p for about the same price? Or maybe a Samsung 720p model for a few hundred less?
We'll be using it with a DirecTV HD-DVR, if that makes a difference.
Also - how do these TVs do with standard rez programming? Most of the flat screens I've seen, it's practically unwatchable - looks like VHS. Why can't they do standard def at least as good as a standard def display? :huh: At least that's watchable.
