Pulling the Trigger on the HDTV Purchase
Having seen the 42" Sharp Aquos in a couple different stores, next to some of the other makes and models, I decided to pass on it. This 40" Sony just blew it out of the water in picture quality (bright brights and dark darks) , side-angle viewing, and overall appearance.
Picking it up on Sunday.
Of course, the $3,900 "Uber-Monster"TM mega-screen TV with Cars playing on Blu-ray looked pretty sweet, too. [ref: chapter 4 from the New York Times bestseller, "Divorce For Dummies"]
