Whatever floats your boat, (or as I suspect) wallet in this case. Um, this be the HighDef Forum, and you be barking up the wrong tree.
Tell ya what. If you can't tell the difference between a 1080p HDTV playing a Blu-Ray movie, and SDTV, I'd strongly suggest getting your vision checked.
SDTVs are going the way of the dinosaurs, just like CRT TVs. I did notice in my trip into HHGregg yesterday, there's nary a CRT to be found in the store.
