    I'm still rocking the humongous cabinet 65" CRT HDTV rear projection. Still going strong.

    Plasma's are unquestionably the best TVs, but after Panasonic stops making them next year, they are finished.

    I've been shopping TVs as well, but unfortunately can't go Plasma since the room i am putting it in is all windows to the left of it. Because I game, I don't want any glare.

    I would recommend holding off 2 weeks though and buying it at Best Buy or FutureShop. I love Costco, seriously have a weird obsession with that place, but the other two have price match, and while Black Friday deals in Canada aren't as great as in the States, we are beginning to have them. The other thing is it allows you to price match for up to 30 days after, and 30 days after includes Boxing Day. So if the TV wasn't on sale Black Friday/weekend, then you could still get lucky on the Boxing Day sales.

    You can get Plamsas with low glare, but you're gonna pay. The top end Panny's do a good job.

    I agree, but this particular model I'm interested is only available at Costco. It's a special edition model for wholesale clubs.

    Double check the specs, often the Costco specific ones have a reduced set of features. Make sure it's not missing something you were expecting.

    The 2-year support/service from Costco is sweet, and they'll replace it if anything goes wrong.

    I've done my research Smile. This model is the exact same as one carried by every other store, except it has an Anti Reflective filter to combat the glare issues. This is $785.99 at costco compared to $799 every else for the lesser model.

    Here's an article about it:
