samsung 1080plcd is about the best in its class right now. I waited til the big after thanksgiving sale at sears and picked one up for 1800 (46" marked down from 2600). They went back up to 2600 shortly after thanksgiving but i was in there the other day and they're on sale again for 2100. I imagine after christmas they'll be marked down some more. so just keep your eyes open
Vizios are nice. If that fifty is that cheap that is a great deal. I think I paid 950 for a 42 from sams. Spend the money for the extended warranty on flat screens....you never know. The vizios are agood tv and the picture is great.
