Stumped on which HDTV to purchase?

 

John Smith
I am looking at HDTV's and i'm confused on which one to purchase.I have a relative who works at Best Buy and can get me my tv cheaper than retail. I know Best Buy has stripped down versions of tv's, but I can't beat the prices I can get. Anyway, which is better:
Toshiba 57H83 HDTV, or Mitsubishi WS-B55 HDTV?
Also, I have Comcast Digital Cable now, and they told me even if i get a HDTV ready set i'd still have to get the conveter box. Therfore should i get a tv that's only HD upgradable to save money?
Thank you for your advise, tips, and suggestions.

Buy the Toshiba Tv, a better buy in my eyes. The Mitsubishi is a stripped down Best Buy model.

Best buy also has the Gold series, which is the 03-04 models Mitsubishi. Not a stripped down unit.

What is stripped down about the Mitsubishi WS-B55? I am thinking of buying it at Best Buy. Current price is $2499. I thought it was a good deal, however perhaps I am wrong? I liked the firewire. Seems like a good idea, if they ever make anything worth buying to accomodate it. Please let me know what you think
