    We just got a new LCD flat screen TV. We vowed to wait until our old (and I mean OLD) CRT set broke down..but the thing kept on working like a champ. DW Sally thought it would be a nice present for us and the house as this is the only thing we will be getting each other this Christmas. We haven't set up our HD account yet, that comes this week but it was freakin' AWESOME watching DVDs..(no we may have to wait many years for Blue Ray). We got it Sunday, set it up Sunday night. We watched White Christmas and The Bishop's Wife while decorating the house over the weekend. It is a 1080p 37 inch Samsung. I think it is a fairly good set, but don't know ... we shall see. Anyhow it looks great! It is the biggest screen that we could fit into the furniture.

    SO much for a sluggish economy...

    I've been looking to buy a HDTV but was waiting for Black Friday. I haven't seen any really good sales yet.

    DD's tv got broken the other day. One of the cats jumped on it, it fell, now it has the blue screen of death but she does have sound. I can't seem to find a tv that isn't HDTV.

    Hi Johnie, we found that VA's own Circuit City actually had the best price on the TV we wanted. Good service too. Wonder why they are going out of business (well VA stores should stay open). Got the 37 in HD for under $900

    Really? I didn't even look at Circuit City. I've been a bit leary about buying anything from them. You think the VA stores will stay open?

    Yes, I think so, they went for chapter 11 restructuring. I think they will retrench back to just VA stores. The same exact tv was $200 more at the Best Buy right next door. The price even beat Price Club.

    Good deal!!

    I wonder if the Circuit City bankruptcy affects Car Max at all or are they completely separate?

    We purchased our's from Circuit City as well...it's a Panasonic...and it's incredible. Jon doesn't *breathe* without consulting Consumer Reports, and afterwards comparison shopping for days......After all was said and done, no one could beat the CC price.

    ENJOY!! We love ours!!! Do you have surround sound? It'll feel like your at the movies!
