Agreed, definitely. I think if you really want something decent now youd be better off going for one of the best 720p sets. Id wait until the big names are releasing 1080p sets personally, just for the choice and peace of mind.
Oh hell yeah! I do hope they get a release around the time that was originally stated. I read a few articles a while ago which seemed to think they might hold off until a later date, due to the manufacturing costs and how LCD screens have really gone down in price. Or something like that But we can hope
Some LCD reviews
And some Plasma
I have the Panasonic TX-LXD500 from the LCD section. Have only used it really for gaming so far, its good with the 360+720p and also good with older consoles. No noticeable screen lag, ghosting or anything. Picture is real crisp and colorful with the 360. Oh I did watch one movie on it, StarWars Ep:2, picture was real nice there aswell.
