Samsung LE40M87 or Samsung LE40R88

I was looking for some opinions. I will be mostly watching SD TV through the freeview tuner and connecting a Nintento Wii to the set. Do i really need a 1080P panel on this size of set. After much reading i like both these and sets. Is it worth the extra ££'s to get the newer screen do i really need to 'futureproof'? I no doubt will get a hidef player in the future but i feel 720P will be just fine for me at the moment. Your thoughts?
I wouldn't personally be to hung up on 1080p. it would depend on your viewing distance any way. check which one gives you the best picture on what your going to be using it for.

I have a 37" M87, my mate has an older 40" (720p) set. His 40" picture is far better than mine. I am in fact taking my 37 M87 back tomorrow as I am sick of the 'green' picture.

What are you thinking of replacing it with?

I took the 37 M87 back last night. I am going to try a 40 M87. If I am not happy with this I may either go for a 720p or drop Samsung for another manufacturer.
