    42" Grand WEGA™ LCD Rear Projection TV

    I am thinking about buying this TV as my plunge into the home theater areana. Anyone have anything bad/good to say about this unit?

    My other choice is the KV-40XBR800 which is a 40" direct view (tube) unit.

    I would have liked to have gone bigger but space is a problem [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Anyway I would like to read some opinions on these units if at all possible before I purchase.

    thanks

    I started looking at a replacement for my 27" XBR in the days of the XBR450's (36 & 34). Since those days, I discounted these large glass tubes for their mass and for reported problems with stray magnetism and discoloration. I eventually got a 42WE610. My finalists were the Sammy DLP and the GWIII. (No burin-in worries) My advice is to read everything and try to physically audition competing sets/types. If you have the time, shop from a vendor with a "no questions" return policy to cinch the deal.
    YMMV

    I would love to see the DLP Sam HLN437W in action but the local Circuit City does not have one in stock[​IMG]

    The plan is to decide and purchase before X-mas so I have some time.
