    So there's a rebate on the Samsung SIRT150 OTA HDTV tuner that brings the price down to $380 or so after rebate. But I also see on the forum here that they will be introducing a new model listing for $399 sometime in June (new model will be missing one set of analog component outputs).

    Is there anything good on the new tuner that would be worth waiting for? Or should I take advantage of the rebate (which I'm sure is timed to run out when the new models are introduced)?

    Thanks.

    I bought my samsung T150 at Best Buy as an open box for $450 and got the $100 rebate also. The new tuners will have the DVI connections that are a great debat for every one. Being able to watch HDTV now is well worth it in my opinion.

    I got the 150 for $270 open box at Sears and also got the 151 to compare.

    My opinion the 150 is better. Picks up signals just as good and has an RF throughput and RGB output.

    151 seems to be a cheaper build also (plastic cabinet)
