To be honest all of these TV's are way to expensive. Remember the days when tv's where $500 bucks for a Sony Trinitron, $800 for the top of the line TV. NOW, we are in the stratosphere. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 thousand for a tv now adays. Crazy! (Yes I know there are more expensive tv's out there)
Anyway, off of my soapbox, I think that if the LHX get's and stays under $3k it will be the bargin set, if you want LED. Sammy is waaaay to slow to drop prices on their TV's so don't hold your breath, not even for the holidays.
Yes, Please do get off your soapbox --- No Sony Trinitron 36"-40" ever sold for $500 hogwash I owned them and they were in the $1.5K-$2K range and cannot touch these larger wide screen panels which by the way used to cost triple what they are today just 4 years ago - my 23" Sony LCD on my kitchen counter 7 years ago cost $1600 on sale and today I can buy a 55" LED Vizio 551 via Target/Amazon for less --- that's proof of the Good New Days! The good old days are the dinosaurs of the dust bin isles long gone 4:3 CRT POS reflective screens.
I used to manage an Appliance Store when younger and the Sony Trinitron never sold for $500 - Samsung POS CRT's did but they could not compare - Samsung CRT's sucked. The good new days are here where you can get viewing better than a theater in HD - good riddens to the Good old days when weenie 36" CRT ruled and now are insignificant.
