    I just got a 50" Sony WEGA...last years model at a discount. I've been looking at HDTVs for a while, and although I'm far from being an expert, I do think the WEGA is very nice looking for the money. If wall mounting isn't a concern, this is a great TV. Its not that thick, either, for a rear-project unit, and only weights about 50lbs I would guess.

    The big question: how big is your room? You need to sit pretty far away from a 50", but both TVs are probably the same native resolution.
