I looked at a 46" Samsung that's available at Best Buy, Wally-World, Amazon etc for the SAME price (within a buck). The problem is that I really want to wall-mount it to save some space, and mounts can be upward of $200. I'd have to find a general, generic mount at a much lower price before I'd jump on that. I want to get rid of furniture, not simply buy different furniture to hold a new TV.
I keep running into the same propaganda that Evo did, saying that manufacturers bought too many panels, etc last year, and prices will plummet. Ain't happening, so far.
