Help with Difference between Toshiba's

12-29-2004, 12:13 PM
I am looking at the Toshiba 62HM94 set, and I see that there is a 62HMX94 as well. I havn't been able to figure out the difference. Any experience with the reliability/quality of the Toshiba sets? The picture seems very good.

I am looking at getting rid of cable and just using an antenna so I was looking for a set with a built in tuner. Been looking at the Toshiba set which I think can be purchased for about 3K. Also looked at the Mitsi 62525 but it costs about 500 or so more.

I was also considering Samsung - but then I would also have to buy a HDTV tuner. besides consmetic, is there a difference between the HL-5685W (built in pedestal stand) and the HL-P5674W? Both are 56 inch sets with the HD 2+ chip. the 5674 (standless) costs a lot more though. I hear of some reliability problems with Samsung sets from this forum and was a little leary of buying one although the pictures look great.

If there are other sets to recommend in the 60 inch range - I am all ears.

Lastly, I was thinking of possibly buying on line - Buydig.com has had the best price on the toshiba (about $1000 less than my local BB or CC store). Seems like they have a lot of internet business. Any experience/concerns working with internet store like that?
