I have about $2000 budgeted. I am kind of a sony brand kinda guy, but wondering if the best option is to stray to a different brand because of the price. I am leaning towards Sony KDL40S2000 or Sony KDL46S2000. I am wondering if you suggest others that are similar. Also, I am debating on buying from a chop shop internet site to save money. Since either of the two options I mentioned are hard to get under $2000 at a retail store. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The tv will be in my living room, not really used for games, but for watching cable tv, dvds, etc. Also, what's your take on extended warranties. I am thinking that I should at least try to get a 3 yr if not 5. Also, someone suggested on another board the Samsung LN-S4095D. Any help would be appreciated!
