So I will be ordering a new DLP TV in the next day or 2. I've narrowed it down to 2 models from Samsung. The only thing I can't decide on is the size. I already ordered the stand that fits both the 61" and the 67" inch models. The price difference for the extra 6 inches is about $700. I have plenty of room for either model, I just can't decide if it's worth it.

Would you pay $700 for the extra 6 Inches?

My brother has the 61" and is very happpy with it. Isn't the 67" a little darker since it uses the same bulb?

Both are the 1080P models

but won't take 1080p from the hdmi port until the new ones come out in april :(

i'm actually waiting for the 61" one that comes out in april myself. if 1080p from hdmi didn't matter so much to me.... since that's what the ps3 will be in Q3 of this year supposedly.

I haven't seen the Mitsu in person, but I have seen a few Samsungs and they really impressed me.

i voted 61" because the cost for the extra 6" doesnt seem worth it, but: that extra six inches can make a big diff.

I think I've decided to go with the 61", I'll save the extra money for when the HD Tivos hit the market.

thanks for the replies.
