yeah i'd heard about the dell thing, sears though is doing 18 months no financing if you have a sears card. i think i'll have a easier time swinging the payments over 18 months and with my dad in town it will be easier to take my old 42" lcd to my parents to set up for them to use. im 99% sold on getting the tv. i was just worried about the soap opera thing, its whats pushing me away from 120hz leds. on some stuff it is cool, but ugh. other stuff its so fake.
i know its more expensive this way, but in my mind its only 100$ more than what i paid for my lcd like 3-4 years ago, so an upgrade of almost 18" is worth that, i just hope its not too monsterous for my living room.
