I've been shopping for my fist HDTV for a while now. I really want to get the Sony KV-30XS955. Problem is, it's discontiuned. It has gotten rave reviews though. I guess the only way to get it is to order it online now. It is ahrd finding websites with decent prices. Some people even said they found it in local shops for $699. Can you guys help me find it at a trustworthy store for as cheap as possible? Please and thank you!

Also if you want to recommend another TV, or whatever feel free!

Use a site like Pricegrabber.com where they'll compare the prices for you and provide merchant ratings with user feedback on past purchasing experience.

I have that TV...and trust me, it is WELL worth the wait to find a good deal. I got mine at CC about 2 weeks before they discontinued it. The CC here in Columbus still has a couple in stock they are trying to sell....i believe they are priced at $719. Goodluck!

Hi Spykes,,,,

I know it's frustrating trying to find the model you really want, but they simply don't manufacture these fine sets anymore.
I looked hard for a "New In Box" 34xbr960 only to find there aren't any in my state (WA), and ended up getting a floor model plus they threw in the matching Sony stand which is worth $300. I just got mine hooked up today and am very happy with the picture quality of it. I've been watching Discovery HD Theatre all evening. If you can find a demo floor model somewhere for a good price,, I think you'll be a happy camper. About a week ago, I saw a 30XS955 on a shelf above a new 34xbr970 and the picture quality of the 30XS955 blew the 970 away!!!!
Call every electronics store in your region and see if they have a floor model left,,,, they are going fast.
Good Luck
