I don't know if anyone is still looking for HDTVs, but the price of the upper 40s-inchers (45" and up) has gone way down.
I bought my no-name brand (Westinghouse) in February for $1,200. Its a 47" 1080P with decent black levels and 4 HDMI inputs and PC input.
Now, I walk into Target or Bestbuy, and I see 47" nicer brand name LCDs with that price range now. I saw a Samsung 46" for $1,200 (full 1080p), and other brands of that caliber at that price range. So, if you were considering buying, I would think about starting to save and buying for the Xmas season, because there really won't be a better time with better prices.
Time to get one for my bedroom.
