ok, my parents enlisted me to find them a sweet deal on a tv, they were impressed with the wega. long story short, they backed out. here's the deal i found
800.com has 32" sony wega for $999.95, http://www.800.com/prod.asp?p=3572 . Right now 31" and above are 10% off. Plus if you use a citibank card, you can get another 5% off http://www.800.com/coupondetail.asp?N=3&CouponID=212 .
plus the tv comes with 20 free blockbuster rentals (rent one, the second's free) and half off of shipping. grand total for a wega 32" = $889.90
