Nothing wrong with 720p, especially @ 26 in. Howevwe the response, or refresh time of 25 ms is high. It's always good to have that number under 12 ms, around 8 is great. But all in all it really depends on how you feel about the TV. If you like it keep it, if not send it back
After $10,456 + the cost of books I finally figured out how to post a sig.

My 720p looks awesome but again it's a 50 inch DLP.  If you can find a comparable 1080p though I would return that TV in a heartbeat.  1080p are a bit more costly.

I haven't even taken the TV out of the box because it's a Christmas present for the kids to use with their PS3.  I didn't know if it needed the 1030p....or whatever that display is I see everyone here talking about.  The 720p will work just as good?

Even the el-cheapo Symphonic WalMart was selling had an 8ms time.
That is to high and you will end up with blurring.

As you have still got the option to return it, I would!! try and get a 1080p HDTV but will be a few more $'s. also try and get the refresh rate down, noticed it is a bit high,!"!

Yeah if it just for the kids the picture will still look amazing.  What I can tell you is if you plan to ever use the internet function the 1080p will display much better resolution for that because of the text and stuff but for gaming the 720p will be dandy, mine is.

I've spent way too much as it is for the PS3 and accessories, games, etc....and if I don't have to spend anything more, then that'll be wonderful.  If the 720p will work, then that's all I care about at this point.  I just want to make sure the 720p will work fine with the PS3.  Also, will any wireless keyboard/mouse that plugs into a USB port work OK with the PS3?

I have a 720p and it looks great and it is the best standard for fast moving games. 1080p is much better on slower games

One more question, please?  LOL!  My kids are only young, so they'll be no help at all in setting this thing up.  Will PS2 games also work with a 720p display, or will I have to keep changing the display depending on whether they're playing PS2/PS3 games?
 
Thanks again!!  You guys here are a great help for this poor Mom who doesn't have a clue to what I'm doing.  LOL!
