This is what the little sales guy told me in the "warehouse" store today. I haven't read anything about that before, so I don't think it to be true, right? Perhaps, they are made in the same overseas factory?? I play guitar and this is the case with a number of guitars--different names, same factories, but with different specs.
BTW, I have been reading threads like crazy on this site and doing tons of research. I was in Costco today trying to decide whether to buy the Vizio 42 plasma or not. I've read too much here to know what to do!!! So I did nothing for now.
