I am considering these two sets and i was away at my local dealer today and watched the Sonys new KP-51PX3. I was really impressed by the Sonys picture quality, it was like a photoimage. However i haven't seen the Toshiba yet and i know Toshiba is considered to be one of the better sets out there as it got components inputs. I don't really understand Sonys experience in accepting progressive signals as Sony doesn't have any component inputs at all. Why does Sony consider it better to not have component inputs? Has anyone seen these two sets side by side? I can't really decide which one to get as the Toshiba isn't available in my country and i have to import it from Germany.
