Hey guys, I need a little help on a TV purchase.

I am looking at a Samsung 27 inch HDTV model 2775HF.
It's a direct-view TV.
And yes, I know it's last years model. But, price is the main consideration here.
The local store is selling this brand new for $388 (original $699!)

I have never owned an HDTV before, and in fact, because of the price of ownership, I probably wouldn't for a very long time.
But, considering that this deal seems so good, I just may not be able to pass it up.

My current TV is actually a 27 inch gateway computer monitor with a max res of 800x600.
While good quality, in order to set it up I need a switcher, and a VGA convertor. And after all that, hope to hell the monitor supports interlaced signals, or else I will need to purchase an up-convertor.

Because of the hassle of all this, my gf has given me the ok to purchase this Samsung at $388 IF and ONLY if you guys give it the seal of approval. :)

So please, I need a LOT of replies to this post so I can show them to her.

Also, this Samsung is the ONLY HDTV I can consider here, due to price, unless you know of another one I could get for the same or cheaper.

Thanks for all replies.:D

Minimal expendature to get into the game so to speak.

I'll bet if your not happy you could sell the thing with very little loss.

I own the 32" model from 2? years ago. I've had absolutely no problems with the set and the picture on it is great.
My only complaint is only one component input but I'm getting an A/V switcher for that soon so that wont be a problem.

$388 is an outstanding price, I'd go for it.

Bill, it is the Bernies stores which have this.

I'm going to go look at it tonight, to see how I like it.
Any other last minute opinions?

That is a very tempting price but not a fan of Samsung products as I would not buy there tv's personally. But it is a inexpensive way to get into hdtv thats for sure.
