But there is a first time for everything, and this is it. It is good news to see Costco and BB take on CC almost (the models numbers are different) directly.
What I said is still true. There are many 60-70" 1280*720 displays at all of the stores right now that they are pushing hard to unload. I overheard a Fry's salesman steer a family away from a new 1080p Sammy to a last years 1280 Mits just because it had a slightly larger screen!
In fact this is probably the first 1080p (rear) projection display ever carried by a warehouse club for in-store viewing. A milestone achievement. Get out the fireworks
