    I realize that the Toshiba 42H81 model is not out yet. However, when I called Best Buy last night the salesperson had never heard of the set and didn't think that they would be offering it. I find this hard to believe, though, since they already have the related 50H81 sitting in their showroom.
    Does anyone know for sure if Best Buy will be carrying this model?

    One thing I failed to mention in the previous post: I think I read somewhere that Sears will NOT be carrying this set? Given that they carry the 50H81, that seems odd. Can anyone confirm that?

    I've run into this too. Best Buy people and Sears people give me blank looks when I ask about the 42H81. I have seen it on the website for ErolsTV (local to my area), so I'm sure there are stores out there that will carry it as well.

    Jeremy,
    Do you have any info on any upcoming sales
    or perhaps when the next 10% coupons might
    be coming out.
    Thanks

    That story definitely is a nightmare. However, I'm in a difficult position. I'm hearing rumblings that Sears is not going to carry the 42H81. I live in a pretty small city, and the only two places that carry Toshiba widescreen televisions are Sears and Best Buy. I really don't want to order from an online vendor, so I'm kind of stuck.
    And, yes, for a number of reasons I won't go into here, I HAVE to get the 42H81, not the 50H81.

    I live in Boston and have asked 2 different Sears locations and have received the same answer - Sears will not carry the 42H81. However, Tweeter is going to sell the unit for $1,999 and the Boston area Tweeter just received their shipment yesterday. None have made it to the showroom yet, but I am anxiously awaiting them....
