Note to those looking quickly:
  • This is the 47" model (not the 55" commonly posted)
  • This is the 8600


As always, sort by newest and NOT by "most helpful". Things change over time.

Java developers, when I saw what has been placed into Java 8 I was immediately reminded of how I've spent so much of my life trying to protect engineers from themselves. Lambda expressions are a horrible idea. Gentlemen: the goal isn't to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer. The goal is to make code readable for a competent mid-level engineer exhausted and hopped up on caffeine at 3 am. What a disaster Java 8 is!

I noticed this too last week and almost pulled the trigger. It's back up to $1,121 now. I'm torn between this and waiting for the 2013 Google TV model.

If you're waiting for 2013, then consider the Sony line. The reason I discounted them before the 2013 models is because they were staunchly active-3D, and I really am a fan of passive, and Sony has finally caved and accepted that passive is what the public wants.

But be aware: the 2013 prices are going to be horrible for all manufacturers for several months. Go to camelcamelcamel.com if you want to see a historical snapshot of the 47LM8600 and other products. Many of them start in April at outrageous pricing before coming down to earth.

I ended up getting the 47LM8600 at Fry's (in-store) for $999.

Adorama listed the 2013 55LA7400 for about 2000. Adorama is usually more expensive than Amazon, so I would expect Amazon to sell 55LA7400 for about 1500.

Also, Toshiba 58L7300U seems very promising. BH Photo Video lists it for 1699. Amazon would probably sell it for 1300-1500. This model is a good value proposition for me because I never watch 3D, and it is 3 inches larger than 55 inch models.
