Don't think you can buy any new 16:9 set for $1,500 right now. The TW40X81 or 40H80 can be had for a little under $2,000. Panasonic is releasing a 47" 16:9 set for $2,000 list price, so the sale price may be close to $1,500. Don't know when it's coming out though.

You want the 40H80, the TW40X81 is last year's model.
The 40" Toshiba is probably your best bet for a good quality 16:9 HDTV for a low price. Look around the net for a good price but I doubt you'll find it for $1500. It is available for less than $2000 though.
