    The only thing that I can see different in the specs, is that the 408 has a CableCard slot and what ever an "ATSC terrestrial tuner" is. But the 408 is the cheaper set. What gives??

    For what it's worth, I ended up buying the Samsung 409D (40in LCD that is just 4.5 inches deep)and I absolutely love it! It was more than I wanted to pay, but it fit perfectly and it looks terrific.

    Pros:
    -great in the bright sunshine that I have (vs. a rear-projection)
    -easily fit the wall mount
    -picture looks great (especially with my Xbox 360), but I haven't received my Avia DVD for setting in up yet.

    Cons:
    -Picture in picture doesn't work for tv/Xbox combo (only works for antenna tv.
    -Only one custom picture setting (but a brightness sensor on the front avoids the usual settings switch that I'd make in daytime vs. night.
    -price (but I ordered through Abe's of Maine for a lot less)
