Damn, glad I didn't buy, but 50" sure looked sweet in the store. I'm not too familiar with all the technical stuff, I'm just looking for something good to game on, big, around $700 or less, with little input lag as I plan to play PC games on it often. I know that's asking a lot for that price range, but it's what I'm looking for in a TV, I thought this was the one for me. I'll keep my eye out though, I've been looking all week. And for the record the guys at PC Richards didn't budge on the price....but they basically said if it was ever on sale before they'd honor old sales, and if anyone can link an invoice to a lower price I would get that price as well.
Still overall I think that's a pretty good deal for a 50" TV, just not the right one for me.
