no backing out

All you people I've been interacting with in person, congratulations! You no longer have to endure my obsession with making sure I pick exactly the right TV and get it at a good price anymore. I ordered the Samsung LNT-4081F from Crutchfield (via Amazon.com) for $1199 (free shipping). I also got a new TV Stand from Amazon shipped faster than the TV itself, so I should be able to set up for it in advance.

I'll still need some kind of shelving unit to hold the components that don't fit on the TV stand; I'm hoping those will go nicely out of the way in the corner and give the living room a LOT more space.

Now to figure out how long I can hold out before getting some HD sources. And replacing the amp. And... And...

Oh my, I've just cracked open the money spigot, haven't I? Bleah.

I salute your bold step out of the circle of HDTV indecisiveness. I'm still languishing there myself.

(also, wow. That thing weighs 6lb less than the 37" Samsung model I'm looking at? Amazing what technology does.)

The sad thing is, I think that I've still got cold feet; if it hadn't been too late to do so when I posted this, I might well have cancelled the order, to extend the pondering process further.

Have you considered a truly professional set of speakers? *evil cackle*

I bought a Samsung 40" (although it's 720p, I think, bought nearly two years ago, was $1400 on sale at the time). Yours probably kicks its ass, but I love mine, so you'd only love yours more. I ended up getting an HD TiVo to go with it, which was a great decision. (It even acts as a converter box, so I don't have an extra box sitting around heating up my room!) And when I called up to ask RCN to send me two Cable Cards, they said "Well, it appears that we have a package which would include the cards, all possible premium channels, and would be less than what you're currently paying." So I said, "Sign me up!" I have so many movies channels now that if there's a movie that I want to watch, usually I can do a TiVo search and it's there -- who needs NetFlix? Anyway, I'm happy :)
