I went into BestBuy Magnolia last night set on buying the Sony 70" R550 (the web site had it listed for $2200). Once I was "waited" on I learned that the TV was backordered with waits up to 3 weeks. My goal was to have the TV in place before my wife got back from a road trip with our son; the delay made that plan unexecutable. So they offered the Sharp 70" quattron (LC-70LE755U) for $2300 ($300 off except it went on sale the next day so I really only got it for $200 off). Also wanted a 3D BD player and targeted the Sony 790. I barely asked for a deal when they took $50 bucks off that too.

Sharp gets delivered Tuesday or Wednesday...woohoo!

I understand that, the last time I snuck a new TV into the house, really for my Corvette/bike shop, in the back, she made me promise no more TV's and she won't go away more then a few hours. whats a guy to do, send her on a Vegas weekend.

The Sharp 755 is a pretty good tv. Its what lead me to go all the way and get the flagship 857. Got a 60 inch on sale for $1900. I saw 2 757's on display and they looked very clean with 0 issues unlike all of the Samsungs I looked at.
