New TV.

    I had a bit of a rage attack one day and long story short, my fist went through my LCD TV. So I'm on the market for a new one. I've been searching for quite some time and finally found one that is pretty good in my price range.

I found it on NewEgg.com and at the time it was $599.99+tax so I jumped on it. For that price I even got the two year extended warranty wich brought the total to $650+tax. The tax pissed me off a bit cause it was about another $50, but still nearly $700 for this TV is pretty good. Just a day later and the price on the site went up to $900. I've been to stores and search until I couldn't stand searching any longer and couldn't even find a better TV let alone one for that price. Maybe I wasn't looking in the right places but for now I feel I was. Do you think it was a good buy? What TV's do you think would be better?

  7. I think the fact that it went up in price the next day is enough to show that you made a good buy!
