I'm trying to decide between these two sets. So far, I've only looked at Future Shop and they have the 50HX81 for just over $4200 plus taxes. The Sony is just over $4600 plus taxes. Where did you buy yours and did you get a better deal? Future Shop will throw in a bottom end DVD player...non progressive mind you...so I would have to upgrade. Stock is tough on the Toshiba but the Sony is readily available as of today. I'm leaning towards the Toshiba though.
