Those widescreen CRT HDTV's have been going fast here on the Craigslist free section here in D/FW. Stating it's calibrated and still looks amazing would be a bonus. Another bonus is if you can help load the beast (most ads I see say to bring help).

I recently learned from a wise poster here that there's a classified section on AVS:

Because the current 120, and even 240 Hz screens do not actually accept those refresh rates but rather interpolate frames to achieve that rate with standard television broadcasts, the usefulness is questionable due to the artifacts introduced. Until television broadcast can be done at 120Hz, this feature's best use is to allow for elimination of 2:3 pulldown for DVD and BluRay movies.

Good to know, thanks again! Marketing strikes again. Hopefully they're allowing that to be turned off if one doesn't like the artifacts generated.

My TV is still kicking strong (knock on wood). Can't wait until all the kinks are worked out of OLED and the prices come down (they're starting to!).
