After lurking here for a month or so and researching my first HDTV here, there and everywhere, I pulled the trigger today and bought a Panasonic TH-42PX60U 42" Plasma. CC is selling it right now for $1299. I signed up for a year of DirectTV (which I was going to do anyway) and they gave me an additional $300.00 off on the television right there. Hard for me to pass up this TV at ,effectively,$999, and considering I got all the standard "new subscriber" discounts on the Direct TV end as well. Additionally, free home delevery and they have a set up deal so when they install the Direct TV they will calibrate the TV and demo all the features ( I'm old, I know Stereo, but I can use the help with the new...to me... video technology).:yippee:

I agree, the difference is staggering. If you live in the Maritimes you could slide down here to Maine to pick one up at the CC in Bangor. On the other hand, you do have universial medical coverage and good beer! Seriously, a like difference can be seen in the prices of laptops between the U.S. and Canada, the same Lenovo or HP costs lots more up there than in the States... do you suppose this is due to governmental policy, perhaps tariffs on electronics, to keep money from flowing out of the country as freely?

Bust Buy has this TV for a 7 hour special on Black Friday for $999. (Minimum 5/store).
