    Samsclub.com has an Akai WS TV for $496. Does anyone know if this thing is any good? It looks tempting, especially for the price. It doesn't appear to be HD though.

    Damn.. what size is it? And aren't Akai's really made by Samsung (or is it Sony)?

    You're right, its not HD. Samsclub lists the model number as CFT3090 which is the analog version compared to the CFT3090HD...still a good price and mighty tempting for people who just want it for dvds.

    This is the first time I've seen an SD widescreen for sale at a retailer in the US
