    My dream set:) Just waiting for prices to fall a bit more. May I ask where you're from in PA? I've only been able to see one 50VT25 in Harrisburg. BestBuy in Altoona's not stocking it. Would love to experience the 65VT25 at a viewing distance of 8 ft to be sure it's not too big for my living room.

    [edit]:welcome_s to dbstalk.com - my #1 site for DirecTV info.

    yeah I thought so to, I hope that was alright posting that. Its listed at $4499 or something like that on the site but you have to call or chat to order it so you can negotiate with them, well worth the money, go for it.

    Keep an eye out for the Sharp LC60E88UN at Dell. They've had coupons (Techbargains?) the last few months bring the price from 2199-2399 to 1599-1799. I got mine late July with $800 off for $1599. I understand they just had one for the 19th/20th but not sure if its still available.

    Most excellent TV, the ridiculous price is a bonus.

    Two things I do keep wondering if I'm waiting til the fall; should I watch for the price and reviews of the Sony TVs with built in Google TV, or should I consider a TV that is at least 3D Ready.

    Sony 34XBR960 - I have one and love it. Best HD picture I've ever seen.

    It's not LCD. It's not plasma. It's a picture tube (direct view) TV - the last one that was ever made.

    Of course, it DOES weigh 250#!

    Great ISF calibrator - Lion AV. He did both of my HDTVs and they both look amazing. It's expensive, but well worth it.

    Tough call, but if you're like me and didn't think I wanted anything to do with 3D, see it somewhere - Panasonic preferably. It's a mind-changer:)

    It was a mind changer. I really wanted one ... now I don't. :grin: Maybe in a few years.

    Tosiba just announced a glasses free 3d model. That MIGHT may me look at them in a few years. Right now, not enough content to make me sway to 3D.

    Me and my crew got paid $200 to move a TV up 2 stories inside a (real) mansion. It wasn't enough. Why? The TV was a 40" Sony XBR CRT. My back *still* hurts, and we had 4 guys trading off (2 at a time)!
