Is the Panasonic PT-47WXC43 (47" 16:9 HD RPTV) any good?

    $1,284 @ Wal*Mart (god forbid - WAL*MART!!!)

    What do you think? I mean, I know it isn't PERFECT, but with a good DVD player and all, would this be nice to crash in front of and watch Lord or the Rings or the like?

    $1,300 for a TV like this (it's not a Apex, it's 16:9, it's HD, etc.) seems like a good deal. I could get 10% off it, so $1,250 AFTER tax.

    Kenneth,
    I have the Panasonic PT-47WX53, which is quite similiar to the model Wal Mart carries, and I'm very happy with it. Once you set the convergence properly and use a tuneup disc like Avia or Video Essentials, it yields a very satisfying picture.

    A store in my area has the PT47WX52 for $999.00 is there much difference between that & the WX53 & the WXC43 at Wal-Mart?

    Tempting,

    but I'm still going to wait until the good stuff comes down to $1000...

    I bet a year from now you'll be able to buy a 50" LCD
    thin wall hanging set for $1000 (I hope).

    Right now, I'm willing to watch my 27" 'unflat', 'unhanging on the wall', 'un HD', TV.

    I am lusting over the Samsung DLP RP's
