I have two basic parameters to limit my search:
1. I'm looking for a set that supports true 1080p - 1920x1080 progressive. No point in buying something that only does 720p or 1080i.
2. I'm looking for sets 60" or larger. Yeah, if I'm going to buy a new set I want to jump to a real home theater size set - my current set is 32".
That pretty much means a projection system - mostly DLP, though LCoS is an option for a couple.
It seems like the picture champ would be the Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Grand Wega SXRD. That's an LCoS system, and from everything I can find it would have the best picture. However, it is easily the most expensive, by far, since it is the best and LCoS is a new technology. I'm thinking about it, since this will probably be my TV for at least the next 10 years, likely longer. But the cost is more than a 72" Toshiba DLP set...
Which brings me to the set that seems to be the leader right now - Toshiba 62HM195. This is a 62" DLP set. It is the lowest cost of the sets I've been looking at (pricing things online - Froogle, etc) and it seems to be decent. There is also a 62MX195 from the 'Cinema Series', which costs a little more, but I can't see a real advantage to it. There is also a 72HM195, which is the 72" version, otherwise the same. It seems to be a decent set.
There are some others, which don't really distinguish themselves: Samsung HL-R6168W 61" DLP, Mitsubishi WD-62628 62" DLP, or the JVC HD61FH96 61" LCoS.
Does anyone have any opinions about these sets? Any other sets that fit the requirements that I should consider? Recommendations for review sites that would have more info on these?
