Newegg.com - Panasonic VIERA 42" 1080p 480Hz Plasma HDTV w/Anti-Reflective Filter & Increased Contrast Ratio - TH42PZ85U i got a steal (with discount ). 1086+tax+4yr service plan ~ 1370 out the door. its a SWEET TV. but... it fucking doesnt work. lol. i plug it in, press the power button, nothing. wtf, taking it back for another tomorrow.
