I work at Circuit City in the entertainment department, in regards to your question about the LCD size, most main stores are not going to carry sizes bigger than 40" USUALLY, i know we carry a 40" SONY XBR LCD but most stores don't carry that big because it is so expensive in the technology with a very low demand right now. The 40" XBR runs 3499$ stores like HH Gregg, Best Buy, Circuit City are goin to be very similar. Stores like Tweeter (NOW Audio Video) and specialty stores will carry bigger but at a hefty price tag.
