From what I hear its not really a Polaroid. Its just that it has their badge on the front. Its comprised of a whole host of generic inernals to make it as cheap as possible. I saw one in the store at Circuit City and giggled at the way it had these horizontal bands floating in and out of the picture. It kinda looked like looking through a screen door. I think that for 900 its probably just about what you would expect given that everyone else wants 2500 or more for that.
Go for it! Tell us how it turns out.
Ok, i've become quite accustomed to shooting down buying a cheap HDTV made by a brand I probably shouldn't trust but holy crap: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Polaroid-42-Plasma-HDTV-PLA-4248/sem/rpsm/oid/160282/catOid/-12869/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do
It's a 42" friggin plasma TV for $900! That's really freakin tempting. Is Polaroid a brand to avoid? Does this thing suck? It just seems to good to be true.
