    Yep. Newegg gets some deals.

    Above is a newer Samsung 46" LCD, the LN46A550, which has HDMI 1.3 instead of the older interface. Not really sure if there is a big difference between the two sets. Other than this one is $888. :D

    The contrast ratio is better, too, at 30000:1 instead of 20000:1 for the A500. It's an "open box" item though, which accounts for the lower price.

    I think I'm set on the Samsung LN40A550 in 42" size. Consumer Reports picked it as a standout Best Buy and everyone of my friends I've talked to who owns a Samsung says they're great. Plus I've seen it available for close to a thousand bucks, which should go over easy with the wife.

    Amazon has it today on their "Friday sale" (today only) at $899.98 with free shipping, although it's 40", not 42". I haven't looked too much into Samsung's model numbers, but I would assume the 40 in "LN40A550" means 40 inch diagonal.

    One more thing to consider (and this is hard when shopping online) is the "glossiness" of the plastic around the screen. Some TV models (most notably most Samsung models) have a very glossy plastic finish which can be distracting in a room where there is a strong light or near a window.

    Also when it is time to buy HDMI cable's, do NOT buy the overpriced ones at Circuit City or Best Buy. Get them from Monoprice instead. Your wallet will think you. And you will not notice the difference.
