Looking for a 42" HDTV? While it's not that rock bottom price of $859.98 that was available until April 1, you can still get a great deal on a Westinghouse LVMW4207 42" Flat-Panel LCD HDTV Monitor. It's brand-new—not a refurbished unit—and Newegg's pricing it at $899.99. There's a $100 mail-in rebate available until April 12, but then shipping is $99.99, so your final price is $899.98 shipped.
This is not the most brand-new LCD display in the world, but we saw this 720p model at CES and it didn't look half bad. Its blacks weren't quite as black as the more expensive Sharp Aquos HDTVs, but it'll do in a pinch, and it really is an HDTV and looks astonishingly sharp anyway. It even has an HDMI port.
This 42" size is about as big as a 720p set gets until you can start to tell it's not 1080p. But it's nestled in that sweet spot where it still doesn't matter all that much. If you're an HDTV fence-sitter, this might be a good time to jump.
