No Visions in Ontario and I can't even imagine how much it would cost to ship a 67 or 72 inch TV!

No there isn't, interestingly enough, the 72in. DLP at Costco is $200 more the 67in. DLP at Leon's. Regarding the noise generated from the 72 in., I don't know if it would ever be audible unless the TV was on without any volume?? Does anyone know if one technology is better than the other?

Thanks

Apparently I'm an idiot, Alan clearly answered my question in his previous post

well, looks like we are narrowing down our choices to either a 46" or 50" Panasonic Plasma 1080p with the 460hz subfield stuff (for fast moving sports/movies). The reviews I've read are wonderful on these models. Costco has a 46" for around $950 and they extend the warranty to 2 years. The 50" at costco is $1450. Sears has basically the same 50" for 1390, but you only get 1 years and they want over $400 for 3 years, what a crock.

I just negotiated a $1499 price for the Samsung PN50A650 50" Plasma at H.H. Gregg. It's gotten good reviews. It was delivered yesterday, and I'll be hooking it up when I get home next week. I'll let you know how it looks.

It was down to Samsung and Panasonic. Samsung has definately narrowed the gap on popularity with Panasonic. I think the Samsungs have more bells and whistles, but I was not seeing any technology to address fast moving sports like the Panny's. Maybe they do, but I was not able to find it...

I have never noticed an issue with sports on plasmas, only LCD's, mind you most of the sports I have watched on Plasmas has been in HD anyway which seems to not create many issues on either format from what I have seen, at least on the newer Flatscreens.

Ok, we are getting the 46" Panasonic 1080p plasma from Costco for $949.. the question I now have is when I go pick it up.

I've heard you have to keep plasmas upright? But, my dad had a technician come work on his Pioneer plasma once to replace a few boards, and he laid it down on the floor?

I have a Chevy Silverado truck, but it is cold outside and we are supposed to get an ice storm later today. I wonder if it would fit in the Honda Pilot, in the back...hmmmm
