One of our Best Buys put out a WS-A48, a brand new Mitsubishi on the floor. The manager is a HDTV fanatic and said that this was a new model and he wanted to open one and put it on the floor. He knows I have been looking for one for a long time, and offered this one to me for 1700. It was on sale for 2090. I did some research and it is identical to the 2002-2003 new gold model 48311, at least physical appearance, remote, and rear input panel. Does anyone know anything about the relationship between BB and Mitsu, such that they would make specific models just for BB? Sounds like a great price from a brick-n-mortar store, the TV is immaculate, no marks, it only has been on the floor for a week. No manual, but I will get the remote (don't need due to my Pronto). I went to an HHGregg and they just sneered about the BB models of Mitsus. They act like it is inferior to all other normal brands of Mitsus... I think it is the jealousy that BB could work something out to get their own model, and thus change their profit margin on these TVs. What would be different between the ws-48311 and BB ws-a48? Thanks in advance, all info greatly appreciated!
