    It seems to be about a $150-$200 or so feature. Not many models are offered both with and without it, but around $150-$200-ish seems about right.

    What they really need to offer is no-tuner PIP (instead of 2-tuner PIP). How many of us still use the internal tuner of a TV? Many (most?) either have cable or satellite these days. That SHOULD reduce the cost of the TV.

    What I want is a high-end, large screen TV with no tuners, and no SPEAKERS! Does anybody make such a thing? I'm sure that if they do, it's MORE expensive, instead of less. Anyway, sorry for the mini rant!

    i'm not into pip. I mean, i dont see any realy point in it. YOu could really only concentrate on one program at a time. So why not just switch back and forth?

    yeah, i guess that would be a good use for it. Probably the only one. But yeah, i wouldn't care if my tv didn't have it.

    Come on guys, doesn't anyone use PIP on Saturdays & Sundays in the Fall -> for football season?! Whenever you see something exciting happen in the PIP window, you can jump to that game in less than a second!
