not sure if it helps, but you can buy a 1080p panasonic th50pz80u at circuit city, best buy, sears, etc for around 2000..go to their websites, and print out the price of the cheapest, they will match it. at least in my circuit city they do anyways, as of today it is 1699.99 on our website, but 1994.98 in the store. happy shopping. let me know how it turns out.
