Powerswitch, if you go to Paul's TV website, you will see that it's No Tax weekend. I called them up and they verified that they will not charge tax. Plus they will price match alltimetvs. So it was pretty painless. I was debating between this TV, and the Panasonic WT50 that you mentioned. But after reading all the reviews, it seems that the LG 76 series has better blacks than the Panny WT, so that made the decision for me. Plus free 6 pair of glasses as a bonus too, and built-in Plex channel support, which I use a lot.
