    Default I need a new tv...

    What's better, plasma or lcd? Anyone know of any really good deals going on right now? I'm thinking in the 42-46" range.

    Go See Rich @ Sears and he will tell you the pros and cons for each. Even if you dont end up buying it there he will give you the best advice. Sears will match the competition however...

    If you do go to Sears it might be best to phone ahead that way you might get service.

    Is that even good? I mean.. we paid $600 for our 42" at Future Shop. I'm not sure what the exchange/duty fees are but it might be about the same to get one here.

    If you can get one here for that price then that would be better. I thought they were close to a thousand bucks.

    Check this website. They have awesome deals and future shop will match their prices.

    If you buy from future shop and the tv goes on sale in a 1-3 month period do they refund the difference.

    I was wondering just in case they go on some sort of boxing week sale. That would be my luck.

    Even if they did you would probably have to camp out to get one and not worth it in my mind.

    No I mean buy it before christmas and just go in for a refund if it does go on sale. I avoid stores near boxing day. Unless you meant Id have to wait in line for the refund in which case youre right its not worth it. Like when people are willing to stand in line for 6 hours at no frills pushing through tons of people to get pizza pockets for a buck. Not for me.

    Most stores have those policies where boxing day or one day sales can not be redeemed on previously purchased merchandise.

    Sony Bravia LCD in that size is ranking tops in Consumers Reports right now. Price is high but quality is great!
    I've been shopping too but I need more important things first.

    plasma good for dark room, truer blacks, lcd for well lite rooms, lcd can't make black, plasma=power hog compared to lcd-comes down to where it's placed and what you are doing. if you are a gamer do not get plasma, images may burn in cheaper models. plasma is cheaper in the big range 50+inches

    The electronics area is a small department and he has always been there when I have gone. As for other areas, I agree...

    I have a 42 inch lcd and i love it. When the wife and i bought ours from the brick they saleman told us that with the plasma tvs you have to get them charged every few yrs and it costs over 100 to have that done. So we went with lcd. Save some hassles down the road.
