Took me months (apparently too long)to decide which model I wanted. finally decided on this one only to find out from a Toshiba rep today that it is discontinued. as some of you know I bought at at a B&M on Dec 31st and they have been calling me also every week to let me know it will be another week for delivery. Well one month later I am still waiting. Funny enough I went last night to speak to a manager at store who laughed at the thought of it being discontinued. He assured me if it was the case he would know. Well he either is lost or lying 'cause I spoke with Toshiba directly and they confirmed there is no more and a new model is coming out next month. I don't know if I can wait that long. The only other of interest was the Sony 34XS955 (no XBR in Canada) but it is too rich for my blood. I would be paying $850 more than what I was going to pay for the Tosh. I am sure it is a better set but it cannot be $850 better. Runner ups include the Panny but darn it, it's silver! what would you guys recommend that would compare (or beat) the Toshiba 34HFX84?
