Has anyone bought this new
Panasonic PT-56WXF95 set? What is the best price and is it really top of the line among all the HDTV Projection 16:9 televisoins?

I bought this new last November and I love it. I really can't say I have any complaints. As far as it being the best one out there, you will hear many opinions on the best, I can only say it is one of the only ones that supports 720p and the picture is beautiful. You can probably get it for just over 3 grand now. A pretty good deal I think.

I seen this set at J&R Computer World for $2,999.

Also against the Philips HDTV and others...this Panasonic blew it out in terms of image.

Also the set looks beautiful.

what is the advantage to support 720? most of them support 1080 and seems it good enough? why would they do that?

Many people believe that 720P (with it's progressive format) looks better than 1080i even though it has fewer lines of resolution. Because it updates the entire image every 1/60th of a second instead of every 1/30th of a second (1080i) there are fewer visible motion artifacts and shimmer in the image. ABC and one of the other major networks has embraced the 720p format. In a few years when more sophisticated compression algorithims are available we will be able to have the best of both worlds via a 1080P format...unfortunately we will all have to buy new HDTV sets that can accommodate this higher resolution signal.

Why only Panasonic made it? How come Toshiba and Sony do not follow?
