If you want a 'premium marque' 40-inch TV, you'll be getting a 60 Hz set, possibly from last year. Examples I've seen round your price (sometimes): Samsung LN40A550, LN40B530, Sony KDL-40S4100, 40V4100. You may want to look at other brands, eg LG. You'll certainly get more tech (features) for your money, though I couldn't vouch for picture quality. You'd have to spend closer to $1000 to get a 120 Hz Samsung or Sony.

On for $599 you can get a VERY nice 42" Panny P42X1 That will outperform any of the budget sets in you price range.

Using a 10% off coupon that can be found on the web, a 42" Panny LCD available only at Best Buy?

It's an IPS panel but only 60Hz.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I guess I am just gun shy and need to just go for it. Anything and pretty much everything is a huge upgrade for me.
