    I went to Best Buy'; website yesterday because Id saw on there website they have a 42 inch Samsung plasma 720P(don't really care about 1080p) for $699 but showed that no stores in CT had it. So i decided just to take a ride down to the Berline Turnpike store to see what else they had.

    I asked about the one on the website. They checked their inventory and they had 1 left! So i grabbed it. They also had a nice Samsung 5.1 1000w surrond sound DVD systemi saw and woulnd't you know it, they only had 1 left lol. They also only had 1 6.5 foot HDMI cable left as well(not like you can't get those anywhere but still)

    They guy gave me all the cables for 15 bucks each

    Summary:

    42inch Samsung Plasma 720p
    1000w Samsung Surround DVD
    3 hdmi cables
    Init Wall Mount
    Monster Power Surge Protector
    ______________________________
    Total less then $1200

    You overpaid on the cables by an extreme margin. Just bought my uncle 3 6' 1.3HDMI's from monoprice for a whopping 7 bucks.

    That's solid man.

    Where you mounting it at? I remember you already having a legit setup.


    I'm moving into a huge house after my gf graduates from school next year and we're trying to decide if we want to make like a "sports" bar type of basement with a few tv's mounted and such. So far the room already has a built in 56" DLP TV.

    I am taking the 32 inch LCD that was on the wall and putting that in the bedroom hooked up to the Samsung DVD Surround Sound.

    Just put the 42inch where the 32 inch was and hooked it up to the BIC Acoustics Speakers and Onkyo receiver...Looks tight :)
