I found this on another forum and thought someone here might be interested. It is a factory refurb, but ~$400 for a 1080i panel with HDMI and 3:2 Pulldown is pretty damn cheap.



Philips 30PW8420/37B

Actually, the guys over at avsforum say it's pretty decent for a budget display. I'm sure a $4000 LCD would look better, but 1080i/60 for $400 isn't bad at all. Either way, worst case scenario, you get a marginal HDTV display for around the cost of a 30" flat screen SDTV, which still isn't bad. And Philips is know for making good quality HDTVs.
