    I've narrowed my RPTV search down to the 53" Panny (thanks to you guys), but I noticed Best Buy and Sears have almost identical models, but the Sears model is $200 more.

    There's the PT-53WX52 (at Sears, $1999) and the PT-53WX42 (Best Buy, $1799). Both are 53", and seem to have the same features, although I can't see the back inputs on the sears model over the 'net.

    Is the Sears just a newer model? Do you think Sears would price match the Best Buy model?

    Thanks.

    PT-53WX52 is with AS2 Screen Shield. PT-53WX42 is same in all aspects but without the screen shield. If you can make Sears price match the BB model (53WX42) that would be a sweet deal :)

    I got my Panny 53wx52 for around $1750 delivered from PC Richard who pricematched Crazy Eddie ($1560 before delivery).

    Some other minor differences include:

    * Slightly better speaker system
    * Somewhat more substantial remote control

    Most people end up removing the screen shield as it basically induces large amounts of glare. If you have kids, it may be a good idea to get one with the screen.

    Some people also make their own shields for maybe $50. IIRC, they were able to make shields that yielded much less reflection/glare than the manufacturer's.
