Great Deal on LCD (FYI)
I noticed this while in Costco today. Great looking LCD at a tremendous price considering it's normally 2500+. I was tempted to buy it.

Same display on Newegg, you are saving a couple bucks more at costco too.
I'm torn between these two though
LCD, we have a 42" Westy at work and it's great, which has given me confidence in Westy
and this DLP, I looked it up, saw it at Circuit City when I went there for something else and it looks great...

Solid deal but not that great. Figure in sales tax and you're looking at $2350 or so. You can find it online at a few places for close to that (free shipping and no tax). Not having to wait for shipping and Costco's return policy makes it a good deal but its not like you would be saving hundreds of dollars.

As a UPS driver my advise is don't buy a TV online, i hate having to bring it to your house only to find out its damaged and have to pick it up 2 days later.
Save you and I the heartache and bring it home yourself :P
Oh also, if your refering to the Costco return policy of bringing your TV back for a full refund, even after a year, they don't have it anymore. Now its just 90 days.

Good point about UPS and Fed Ex. This is a common topic at AVS.com. Only buy online if they use a proper shipping company that specializes in fragile products. I bought mine from 6th Avenue and had no problem.

Don't get me wrong, i'm not bad mouthing UPS or anything. Its very difficult to properly handle a LCD/plasma TV going through our system. Just my building alone, that 1 TV can move down half a dozen different belts or slides which means it could get caught in a jam at one point or another.
Imagine a couple hundred packages squeezing the sides of that LCD box.
Use a company that uses private freight. Their trucks have straps to keep your TV snug and in place, mine on the other hand doesn't and that TV will slide around.

I'd also add I would never by a TV online without seeing it in person first, but that's just me.
