50" Panasonic (Plasma) TH50PX75U. I was considering the sony XBR around the same size but I got the panasonic for $1200 from Frys (regular $2200 at best buy)
And not to mention, I also had to budget in something to stick it on/in so we got a nice entertainment center for it. Again, regularly priced $2000 snagged it shipped and setup in our den for $1050. So it only took about $2300 for the TV and furniture.
We're going to the flea markets tomorrow to see if we can find some little nick-nacks to put in the little cubbys. Maybe some old hard back books, book ends, etc. The wife also wants an old iron bird cage or something to put up on top with the flower basket. She promised me a PS3 for my bday in May so until then, I'll have to just rock the good old 480i DVD
