@raven_sword: hmm. Well, you might be able to be okay with 720p at that distance and size, but after looking at the sets, the 1080p ones come with 3 HDMI inputs. And as far as the future goes, that actually seems like the safest bet. Most things(like these new consoles) are just going with HDMI now; so, that should be a factor in this. I'd pay the extra to make sure it isn't just behind the times in a year or so.
