TV recommendation.
 
I know very little beyond the usual specs people talk about. We are considering getting a new TV during the holiday season, since we still have a 8 year old TV :( Our living room is not big at all. There is going to be between 5-7 feet between the TV and the couch, so a 52incher won't work. Looking for something between 35-40 inches. We are going to be watching mostly sports and regular TV. No Gaming. If it's possible to get a good quality unit for 800 or less, that would be perfect. I really don't even know where to start :o

You should be able to get something good for that price point, just look around.

Yeah bob. Here in AU you can get a decent 42incher Sammysung for like 600AUD. So it should be easy over there.

I bought an LE40B650 a while ago, it's a pretty neat screen, although I'd get a B750 if I were you instead.

As long as contrast and brightness are decent and you have a 120Hz display, you should be kosher.

Plenty of options out there right now in the price-range you are talking about. Dell had a lovely Philips for sale for $599 over thanksgiving that one of my friends bought :)

The price at Newegg link you posted is $879.99
880.00 USD = 922.618 CAD This is official Official Currency exchange as of today. Your exchange is not going to be close to it, specially if you pay with CC .

There is not going to be free shipping to Canada, I estimate the shipping would be about $100.

The TV could also be subject to custom fee about 5%. The warranty might not be covered in Canada, if something goes wrong you might have to send it back to States.

The SOURCE with 5 locations in Vancouver has the same SONY BRAVIA KDL40V5100 40 for 999.99 CAD
Future Shop also with some locations in Vancouver has it also listed for 999.99 CAD
Maybe you can make a better deal with some other smaller store locally plus you can have the TV for Christmas or maybe wait for Boxing Day Sale if lucky.

I guess when you live in Canada you have to be punished and pay out the ass for your dumb decision. :D
