Well. My search has ended. Purchased thee PT-47wx49 today at Sears! I basically new I wanted this panny. I have viewed them ummteen times along with the other brands and have thought the picture was great. I have been researching monitors for the past 1.5 years! I was going to go with the Mitsubishi when i started my saga then it was going to be the Toshiba 50H(x)81. My logic was, with the new encryption standards on the horizon why would I want to spend 2200$ + on one of these lovely sets? Maybe if I could find an internet price for the panny that was ridiculously low and maybe if Sears would match this ridiculously low price then just maybe I would buy it. Well, i found a site that was selling the panny for 1544.95$ Didn't mention a thing about shipping prices. I print it out and head north to sears. Walk into the store and look off into the distance and see the tvs. They had a panny set up with a laser disc signal split 14 times and the picture was very acceptable. Played with the set for a little bit and got the dishnetworks Hd loop running, split 14 times. Looked awesome! Better than the mits, hitachi and sonys. I no. I no, the store is not the place to compare but the panny was awesome without calibration! Ok, now the young female sales lady came over and asked if she could help me, I said "if you could match this price and only charge me 35$ for inhouse delivery with setup, I'll bye this baby right now. She said "no problem"!! Ended up paying 1670$ delivered! And the set is going to be delivered tomorrow! Awesome baby!! I'll let ya no what my thoughts are after I do some minor calibrations.. any suggestions? It's a beautiful day!!
