    Well,my dealer just had their annual customer appreciation sale.The had a deal on the current 65h80 for $5500 Cdn which is a good price in these parts.
    To make a long story short,he told me to wait.He said that he had already been informed that Toshiba is totally re-doing the 65".New slimmer exterior,better 3:2 pulldown ,the works.A totally new set from ground up and for the same price.
    Has anyone else heard this?

    Thanks Craig,
    I guess I should also thank my a/v dealer for being so honest.He could have had my money if he really wanted it.

    Hmm... a 50" model seems like it would be perfect for me... I'm glad I'm still months away from actually purchasing anything. [​IMG]
