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.

Thanks for that. We are gonna wait till boxing day probably, although I doubt they will have anything substantial on higher quality TVs.

Samsung>Toshiba>Sony>LG>Sharp in very broad general TV terms. That said, if it's the best price you can find up there for a 40" TV, go for it.

You need to read some reviews before buying a TV; the specs always lie.

Here's a review of the e77-series from Sharp and as you can see it didn't do too well.
http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/sharp...0090519148.htm

How are your viewing conditions - are you gonna watch it in a light or dark room?

Have you considered getting a plasma(they offer a significantly better black level at a much lower price)?

My recommendation would be either a b640 or better TV from samsung(or v5000< from Sony) for light viewing conditions or a Panasonic G10 or pz80, if you can find one, for watching in the dark.

Thanks for the reply. I am going to be using it in a moderate to dark room, and mainly for watching sports like hockey, tennis, and basketball. I haven't considered plasma because I thought I heard it would not do too well with watching sports.
The living room is kindda small, so a huge TV is not point, but I see the sharp is not as good as I thought.

I have a plasma and have no problem with sport programs or gaming. In fact I thought it was LCDs that had problems with sports through ghosting.

Plasma screens generally have better motion-handling than LCDs, but the new 200Hz tech helps even out the field a bit(increases input lag). Plasmas also have lower input lag if you plan on using your TV for gaming.

The Brick has Tv's on for cheap. I got the 40" Sony Bravia 1080p for my parents and it works great.
