I finally got up the nerve to ask my wife if we could get a 42" wide-screen TV and she said yes. I was so afraid that she would come up with some perfectly logical reason why we shouldn't buy one but all she said was "you hardly ever ask for anything so go ahead. I have settled on a Mits WT42311 after doing much research and reading of threads in this forum. The price is in our range, it fits perfectly and my dealer has an authorized ISF technician on staff. Coupled with no interest, no payments financing it was a no brainer. I can hardly wait until this weekend when we can go make the purchase.
