What do you guys think?
I see the refurbs for 55" Hitachi HDX go for about $1100, and the 42" HDX go for about $800. These are refurbs, with only 30-day warranty, and older models (2006). Alternatively, I can get the 42" HDX new w/ 2yr warranty for $1400 shipped.
747i 47" LCD is now about $1000 new.
I figure black levels are about the same on these (Olevia LCD / Hitachi plasma). My main concern with the Hitachis is would you buy a refurb?
Any other suggestions for really good 42" & up TV in this price range around $1200?
