If you can get to a Best Buy or similar with large numbers of models
on display, you may discover that you don't want one...;-) Only the
largest and best of these look very good to me, and these are in the
$6000 and up category, too rich for me. The best buys are in CRT
models (select the demo model that looks best, and buy it only - not
a "boxed" sample that is unlikely to be as good...).
