I like Sears. I went to Sears, BB, CC, Tweeters and another high end store,
but at the last minute, thought of Costco.

They had a 56" DLP for $2000. It had the clearest, brightest pic of any
other display on the floor. Native 1280X720.

With their guaranty return policy(no need to buy an expensive, extended
service only warranty), it seemed to be a no brainer.
