    Matt, Yes I saw that over there & I'm hoping that the Sanyo's with the Built-In HDTV Tuners at Wal-Mart pan out. I'm looking for a closeout price on the 30" Sanyo for $598.88 [​IMG]
    I still think HDTV's are Over-Priced especially seeing Sony was able to drop the price $500.00 compared to last years prices. Now if they droped the price $500.00 next year that would be something [​IMG] then EVERYBODY would run out & buy & HDTV set & the Networks would really scramble to get out HDTV Programing. But I do have to say that Sony's new prices should give the other companies a run for their money & help lower prices on HDTV sets. When I was fooling around on the Sony site ordering sets I got the first week in July as a delivery date on some of them so maybe you'll get your 27 inch earlier than you expect [​IMG]

    Those prices are coming down. But let's hope the build quality isn't as well. Not to mention the power-supply capacity.

    But for HDTVs to take off with the nonHT crowd, the prices will have to be in line with what they are already used to paying for a TV set — meaning a few hundred dollars, as opposed to more than a thou'.

    Jack, this week again BrandsMart USA in FL has the 27 inch Zenith HDTV model C27V22 for $348.88 & I'll bet Zenith made money selling them to BrandsMart USA & you know BrandsMart USA is making money on them. I want to see a 34 Inch Wide-Screen HDTV set for $699 or less & I'm sure they can do it right now but that would eat into their profit margin. It will probably take China building a "GOOD" low-cost HDTV before the other companies really lower their prices much. Hate to say it but I really don't care if they have to put in cheap power supplies & etc to get the prices down because this will get the average person to go HDTV & then we "ALL" will get a lot of HDTV programming [​IMG] & there will always be the bettr sets out there for more money with good power supplies & etc.

    That Sony KBR is pretty expensive. Is it really worth that much? There are many nice bigscreen TV's you can get for that price.

    "Hate to say it but I really don't care if they have to have full screen DVDs & etc because this will get the average person to go DVD & then we "ALL" will get a lot of DVDs"

    See? Slippery slope. Lucky/Goldstar (I REFUSE to call them Zeniths) suck bigtime.

    Sony's Digital sets, esp[ecially the Super Fine Pitch tubes set a new standard for television. Simply in a class by themselves. Worth every penny of the difference between them and a comparable set from any other brand.

    I am thinking about buying the KV34HS510, but then I saw this thread. What if anything other than the price is different between the KV-34HS420 from the 510? Also when is the 420 suppose to come out?

    Kyle, If I remember right the diffrence between the two sets is that the 510 has P-I-P & a built-in Sub-Woofer the 420 doesn't & the 510 has the DVI INPUT & the 420 has the new HDMI Input. If you check Sony's website I think you can order some of the models now (They are not in stores yet though) but most of the line won't be out until July/August or maybe even later.
