    57\" TV

    I've done alot of research, I've narrowed it down to a Toshiba 57H93 or a Hitachi 57F500. Both TV's have great picture, and I will get the 5 year in home warrenty service plan. I can get a refirbished Toshiba for $1800.00 or the Hitachi for under $2,200.00 locally. It's a tuff call for me. I'm more leaning towards the Toshiba. Just thought I'd get y'all opinions.

    It means it was sent back to the factory for whatever reason. Could be it didn't work, but it could be for something as minor as a scratched case. The factory repairs/replaces what ever was wrong with it. Either way, they can't legally sell it as new, so they are sold as refirbished for around 1/2 the price. It still comes with a full warrenty, + I will buy a extended in house warrenty/service plan.

    [/ QUOTE ] All I had too do was dissconect everything, take everything out of the enterment center, haul that heavy mofo out on the deck, put together the new stand, and wire everything back up. The rewiring part only took 5 to 10 mins. My speakers are on poles, didn't have too move them.
