New HDTV!!

I just ordered a Sony Bravia 52" HDTV (KDL52XBR4) online. I am eagerly waiting for delivery. I did a lot of shopping around and found a really good price that included a surge protector and HDMI cable.

I visited three electronics chains and the online price was $500 less than the least expensive store price, and they all wanted in excess of $100 for the HDMI cable I got for free. This is an outrageous gouge!

The Red Sox season and Summer Olympics should be great on this new set.

Can't wait to get it and hook it up. Gotta call the cable company next.

Big thank yous to all of you who shared your research, caveats and knowledge with me on this subject. I feel I was a lot better prepared as a result.

That is basically my TV, but bigger and newer version. You are going to be beyond thrilled with your choice Andy!

Contgrats on a great purchase. I can't wait to hear what you think once you get it all hooked up.

I would be worried we'd never see you here again except that you have a laptop, right?

Laptop & HDTV = multi-tasking. No problem

Ordered from Abe's of Maine, which, surprisingly enough, is in Edison, NJ.

I'm not going to watch Dr. Phil no matter how good the picture is on my TV.

Do you have the director's cut version with the alternate endings?
