Re: 1st post: Splurge on a 73" Diamond or go with the lower end model?
I don't have another tv in the home theater, but I've got a Sony 55" upstairs in the living room, so that'll do just fine for now. Plus I've been without the Mitsubishi since November, so what's a couple more weeks? That's a really good suggestion about the Blu-Ray player. Would you get a standalone or just go with a PS3? I've heard that the PS3 performs really well and responds quickly when compared to some of the entry level Blu-Ray players.
