Not a bad price for this.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

I agree to a point. It is not a bad price for a 42" LCD TV, but I want more. I would like direct LED back lights, and wireless no connection built in if I can get it under a thousand dollars. I personally have been looking at 40" with those specs and 120mhz refresh at those price lines for several manufacturers. The wireless connection is hit or miss though. I will wait until a bit after CES watching for where prices go. The 240mhz refresh is no big deal as is 3D really for me personally as I doubt we would make enough use of it to justify the top end price's. This is a consideration though epsecially if it had USB as I could get a wireless antennae.
