DVD playback looks better on an EDTV plasma screen television, should I buy one instead of an HDTV?

DVD Playback on EDTV Plasma Screen Televisions

Often, EDTV plasma televisions will appear better than HDTV plasma televisions when displaying DVDs. This is because DVD technology currently produces a picture that is closer to EDTV resolution than HDTV resolution. Widescreen DVDs only display at a resolution of 704x480, which is similar to the EDTV resolution of 852x480. This, however, is not a reason to avoid buying an HDTV. DVD technology is changing all the time, and within a few years the resolution of DVD recordings will most likely increase to meet the demands of HDTV users.
