I think I speak for several of us here when I say that we bought (or are buying) the 732 because it has the best bang for the buck. Though the 731 was less expensive, there's too little bang for my buck there. I bought my 732 for the significantly improved blacks and what I personally perceive as a greatly enhanced contrast ratio for only a few bucks more than the 731. Simply put, the 831 was out of my league. Another half a yard was more than I wanted to invest.
Remember, the set was only part of the cost. Most of us also had to buy a stand and some even bought a new DVD player, HDMI cables, etc. The budget only stretches so far. The 732 is a nice fit.
If I have any bragging rights with my 732 it's that it's paid for.
