I have a chance to purchase the Sony HD300 from Tweeter (my nephew works there), for $420.00 plus tax. I can get the DirecTV deal for $399.00 plus shipping (haven't been a customer long enough to get the $99 or $199 deal). Which one should I choose? Can DirecTV guarantee me that I will get the Hughes HTL-HD and not the Samsung? That is the only way that I would go with the DirecTV deal. Since both boxes are made by the same company, does it really make that much of a difference, as to which one is better?
